Lacto Vegetarian — 3½ Carb Choices
© 2007

Oatmeal is considered a healthy, high fiber breakfast and it's true, it can help lower your cholesterol. Children love this one, so give it a try. You can use your favorite oats for this, although cooking times may vary. For a treat we like to add raisins or dried cranberries and a few other ingredients. Served hot with our special topping it practically becomes as good as any breakfast you've ever experienced and possibly better. For the topping you'll need something like the BonJour Primo Latte frother. It really works. To get yours, just click on the image. These also make great gifts.

Serves: 2

  • 1¾ cups filtered low sodium water (trace)
  • 1 medium fresh apple, sliced, chopped or diced, skin on (1.82 mg)
  • 1/3 cup seedless golden or black raisins or dried cranberries (6.593 mg)
  • teaspoon ground cinnamon* (.13 mg)
  • 1 cup Quick Quaker Oats or other brand of quick oats (2.4 mg)
  • 3 tablespoons nonfat milk with added Vitamin A (25.7 mg)

Put 1¾-cups of water into pan of choice.

Prepare apple, place into pan along with raisins and cinnamon. Bring to boil.

While water is coming to boil, put nonfat milk into a coffee cup and using the frother, bring milk up to a froth. Set aside.

When water is boiling, add the oats, turn heat down a bit and stir for one minute. When done, turn heat off and move the oatmeal to another unused burner.

Place milk in the cup into a microwave and heat for about twenty seconds or until the foam reaches the top of the cup.

Remove froth from microwave. Serve oatmeal in bowls and lay the froth on top. You may want to make more foam if you divide the oatmeal into three or more servings.

*Or cinnamon to taste.
