Cider Oatmeal

Cider Oatmeal

This oatmeal is something I’ve been making since my daughter first started eating solid foods. (I’ve started adding nuts since then). Its so easy and the fruits and nuts can be swapped out for whatever you like and/or have on-hand.

I love using the apple cider around this time of year but I’ve also used apple juice in the off-season. The sweetness from the cider is the only sugar you need for this oatmeal. It’s awesome as leftovers as well, so make a big batch and warm it up as needed! Its really yummy either way!

2 1/2 cups apple cider
1 cup water
1 1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup chopped apricots
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

This recipe is really easy to reheat on a busy morning. It will be really firm coming out of the refrigerator. I like to warm it up in the microwave and then thin with a little milk and some extra walnuts on top.

I’ve also made this oatmeal in my rice cooker. It doesn’t get much easier than this!

Rice Cooker directions:

Pour all ingredients into rice cooker. Turn on. Stir. Rice cooker will switch off when ready. Mine takes about 15-18 minutes. Let cool.
