This is the beautiful and delicious breakfast I enjoyed Thanksgiving morning. I felt good eating it and it help fuel me through my morning workout. I kept it simple because I love the flavor of oat bran. It is smooth and not overpowering like old fashion oats. You can use any kind of apple for this quick breakfast. I used an organic green apple because they are tart and crisp. A tablespoon of light agave was just enough sweetness for this whole dish to come together with the dried cranberries and a generous scoop of crunchy peanut butter!
Oat Bran with Agave-Cinnamon Apples and Dried Cranberries
1/2 granny smith apple, chopped small
1 tablespoon light agave
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon dried cranberries
1/3 cup toasted oat bran
1 cup water
1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter
Optional: almond milk
In a small pot on medium-low heat, add the chopped apples, cinnamon and agave. Cook until the apples are slightly soften and the agave has created a syrup, about 4 minutes. Add 1 cup of water and the oat bran to the pot. Bring to a boil and stir every
phew few seconds until the oat bran starts to thicken. Add the cranberries and cook for another minute.
To serve top with crunchy peanut butter (almond butter works too) and a couple more cranberries. I like to add a splash of almond milk to help cool it off.
See simple and delicious.
