1 crisp apple, such as Braeburn or Crispin, cored and diced with skin

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar, plus more to taste

3 cups water

2 cup quick-cooking oats

1/2 cup wheat germ

1/4 cup ground/milled or whole flax seed (or a combination of both)

1/4 cup chopped dried apples

1/4 cup golden raisins

3/4 cup 1 percent milk


  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, and the apple and cook until lightly brown and soft, 2 minutes. Add cinnamon and sugar and cook until dissolved. Add the water and bring to a boil. Add the oats, wheat germ, flax, dried apples and raisins. Stir constantly for 2 minutes until oats are cooked and dried fruit is slightly plumped. Divide into 4 bowls, sprinkle each bowl with more brown sugar, a drizzle of milk and a dried apple ring.
