This hearty breakfast dish is packed with cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber. Leaving the apple skin on contributes even more fiber. Most of the fat is a healthy monounsaturated fat from the nuts.
- 1 apple, preferably McIntosh, cored and coarsely chopped
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch kosher salt
- 2 cups water
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup toasted pecans
Combine the apple, oats, cinnamon, and salt in a large microwave-safe bowl water, and stir in the water. Cover and seal with plastic wrap or a tight fitting lid and heat in the microwave on high until apples are soft and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 8 minutes. Stir in the maple syrup. Divide between 2 bowls and top with the nuts. Serve immediately.
