Ingredients Convert to Metric

  • 1 3/4 cup low-fat milk (1%)
  • 2 tsp unsalted butter
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 3 Tbsp unpacked brown sugar, divided
  • 1/2 Golden Delicious apple, peeled and cored
  • 3 Tbsp chopped walnuts

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a 2-quart microwaveable, oven-proof casserole, heat milk and butter in microwave until milk steams, about 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in salt and oats and set aside.

Chop apricots. Mix apricots, raisins and 1 tablespoon of the sugar into oats. Shred apple into oats and mix to combine.

Bake oats, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Stir, then top with remaining sugar and the nuts. Bake 15 minutes longer, or until the oats are chewy. Divide the oatmeal among four bowls; serve immediately.

Variations:

Serve some for breakfast, then reheat the rest in the microwave for dessert, topped with a small scoop of nonfat/low-fat yogurt or vanilla ice cream.
