Steaming bowls of whole-grain Quaker® oatmeal have been warming tummies and toes for over 125 years. Tangy dried apricots, sweet honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon flavor the oats as they cook.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 3 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 2 cups Quaker® Oats (Quick or Old Fashioned, uncooked)
In 3-quart saucepan, bring water, apricots, honey, cinnamon and salt to a boil.
Stir in oats; return to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium; cook about 1 minute for quick oats (or 5 minutes for old fashioned oats) or until most of liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally.
Let stand until of desired consistency.
If desired substitute raisins, dried peaches or pears, dried cranberries or blueberries, dried apples, dates or diced mixed dried fruit for apricots.
