How to Make Sugar-Free Apple Oatmeal
Step 1: Gather and prep your ingredients: chopped apple, cinnamon, no-calorie sweetener, oats, vanilla
Step 2: In a medium to large microwave safe bowl stir together the chopped apple, cinnamon and sweetener and microwave 2 minutes. (Be sure to use a much larger bowl than you think you need to prevent the oatmeal from bubbling up and over the sides.)
Step 3: Stir in the oats and vanilla and microwave 1-2 minutes more until done to your liking.
Step 4: Stir again and allow to cool for a minute or two before digging in!
Be sure to use a large wide deep bowl to prepare you oats in the microwave because they will boil and bubble up as they cook. If your mug or bowl is too small the oatmeal is likely to spill out over the side of the bowl and make a huge mess in the microwave. It's happened to me and I don't want it to happen to you!
Use whatever apple variety you like best and have on hand. I'm a big fan of Pink Lady and Honey Crisp but any apple will work.
I've made this with both old-fashioned and quick cooking oats with good results.
