Apples And Oats Porridge

Apples And Oats Porridge

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 and 1/2 cups oat bran (not oatmeal)
  • 1 large apple - peeled/cored and chopped into very small pieces
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground caraway seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • milk for serving (optional)
In a large (at least 2 quarts) sauce pan over high heat, bring the water to a boil. Stir in the the oat bran and allow water to return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for two minutes - stirring often.

After two minutes, turn off heat. Stir in the apple, raisins, maple syrup and spices. Let stand until apple pieces soften - about 5 minutes - stirring occasionally.

Divide hot cereal evenly among 4 bowls. Serve with the milk if desired.

This is kind of like a super delicious homemade Cream of Wheat style hot cereal - but with all the goodness of oat bran.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank muffin for this recipe.

Didn't like it that much with the oat BRAN - I much prefer it with quick-cooking oat MEAL.

2 thumbs up! Made this with whole wheat cream of wheat and it was top-notch. EVen my wife and daughter liked it, and they usually hate hot cereal.
