A protein-packed oatmeal to energize your day.


4 cups fat-free Milk
2 cups Oats (quick or old-fashioned)
2 tablespoons Sugar
1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
1 Apple, cored and chopped (unpeeled)
½ teaspoon Vanilla extract
3 Eggs, beaten


1. The night before serving, combine in a saucepan: Milk, oats, sugar, cinnamon and apple. Cover pot and refrigerate overnight.
2. In the morning, remove pot from refrigerator and stir. Replace cover and heat over medium-low heat for about 4 minutes until creamy; stirring occasionally to prevent from sticking.
3. Add eggs and vanilla; stir constantly with a fork until eggs are no longer shiny and are cooked, about 1-2 minutes.

This recipe can easily be adjusted down to 2 servings or up to 5 or 6 or more. Just follow this simple formula: For each serving, use 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup oats and 1 LESS egg than the number of servings (i.e., 1 egg for 2 servings, 4 eggs for 5 servings.) Add sugar, cinnamon, apples and vanilla to taste.
