Nothing says fall like the sweet aroma of apple pie. Warm up on a crisp morning with this creamy, whole grain oatmeal.


2 1/2 cups skim milk 625 mL
1 cup water 250 mL
1 1/3 cups large flake oats 325 mL
1/3 cup wheat germ 75 mL
2 tbsp packed brown sugar 30 mL
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon 2 mL
apple, cored and diced
2 tbsp dried cranberries (optional) 30 mL


Step 1
In a large saucepan, bring milk and water to a gentle boil over medium-high heat. Stir in oats and wheat germ. Reduce heat to medium-low heat; stir in sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Cook, stirring for about 12 minutes or until almost thickened.

Step 2
Remove from heat and stir in apple and cranberries, if using. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.


Like cooked apples that melt in your mouth? Simply add it earlier and cook until desired texture.
Double up on bone building benefits by swapping water for milk.
For an extra boost of fibre, use pears instead of apples.
Short on time in the morning? Make the oatmeal the night before and warm it in the microwave the next morning with a splash of milk. 
Switch it up! Use your favourite seasonal fruit instead of apple. Try peaches, plums, strawberries, blueberries or pears.
