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.

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup toasted pecans


  1. Combine the apple, oats, cinnamon, and salt in a large microwave-safe bowl water, and stir in the water.
