‘Cheap and Easy’: Cinnamon and Apple Porridge

Oats are a delicious and nutritious food that are great for camping. Light to carry, you only need to add a few things to make it a tasty breakfast to start an active day.

Preparation Time: 1 minutes / Cooking Time: 5-10 minutes / Makes 2 cups


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup skim milk powder ( I use soy milk powder for a malty flavor)
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 apple, sliced


  1. Add oats, water, cinnamon, nutmeg and milk powder into a saucepan and stir over a medium heat.
  2. Continue stirring and cook for about 5 minutes until the mixture reaches a porridge-like consistency (add water as necessary to create your preferred consistency)
  3. Remove from heat and stir in honey
  4. Serve with sliced apple

    This looks delicious. I’d add steal-coat oatmeal or unrefined oatmeal to my own dish as the instant one contains a lot of sugar and spikes insulin much more rapidly into the bloodstream. I also provide further information on this and other related topics on Google+ https://goo.gl/XCQSnw?ericberg

    This seems like a great recipe, thanks for posting, Healthy eating and running makes a great combo. I started a healthier lifestyle at the beginning of this year and I’m also training for a race with SportMe half marathon app and things are going great for now.
