1 cup old fashioned oats
2 cups water
1 carrot, peeled and julienned or shredded
1/2 apple, peeled and chopped
small handful of raisins (can use dried cranberries, too)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Place the water in a small pot and add the apple, carrot and raisins. Simmer for 10 minutes. At the end of the 10 minutes, you might have to add more water, if too much has evaporated. Add the cinnamon and oats and cook according to the directions on the canister or until the oats are the desired texture. I like my oatmeal thick, so I let it simmer gently for almost 5 minutes.
Seve when ready.
I topped it with a little milk and brown sugar. It would also be good with some dried coconut, nutmeg and/or dried apples!
