Ingredients

2 cups (500 mL) low-fat (1%) milk or vanilla soy milk
¾ cup (190 mL) old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick oats)
1 medium apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1/3 cup (90 mL) dried cranberries or raisins
½ teaspoon (3 mL) cinnamon
¼ cup (65 mL) whole flaxseeds, ground or 1/3 cup flaxseed meal
¼ cup (65 mL) nonfat plain or vanilla yogourt
¼ cup (65 mL) maple syrup, warmed, or 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Directions

  1. Combine the milk, rolled oats, apple, dried ­cranberries (or raisins) and cinnamon in a heavy medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring almost constantly.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until creamy and thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the flaxseeds. Spoon the cereal into individual bowls and top each serving with a dollop of yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup. One serving is 2/3 cup. Leftovers will keep, ­covered, in the refrigerator for up to two days. Reheat in the microwave.
