This morning I got up and thought - I probably don't need to eat for at least two days after all the food I had yesterday ... But I was hungry. So I stood in front of the fridge for what seemed like forever and stared at the contents hoping something would jump out at me. Nothing. I closed the doors because I could hear my mom in my head saying "you're letting all the cold air out!" She's a smart woman <3 Then I thought about what I really wanted. Something warm. And healthy. Mostly to rebalance the chips and dip I ate at my neighbor's house last night after 8PM. Oops! Oatmeal? Nope. Not in the mood for that, but I liked the idea that it's warm. So I made my version of grain free oatmeal. It's everything I put in oatmeal when I'm making it only without the oats! Enjoy!
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 2
  • 2 green apples, cored and chopped
  • ⅛ cup water
  • cinnamon to taste
  • ½ cup pecans (can substitute walnuts, almonds or your favorite)
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  1. Place apples in small saucepan.
  2. Add water to cover the bottom to keep the ingredients from sticking.
  3. Sprinkle with cinnamon (I like a lot so I add a generous sprinkle!).
  4. Add nuts and cranberries.
  5. Heat on medium until water starts to boil. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. If you like the apples firm, don't cook as long.
