  • 3 and 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional) 2 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned
  • uncooked)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
After making this oatmeal twice, I've adjusted the recipe a little bit. It originally called for 1/2 cup of chopped dried apricot. I've increased that to 3/4 cup because the apricot flavor isn't very noticeable at the lesser amount. You could even do a full cup as the dried fruit softens to really nice texture in the boiling water. Besides that, I added brown sugar and vanilla and bumped up the cinnamon a notch. With these changes (reflected in the ingredients above), I think you'll find this a flavorful, heart-healthy way to start your day.
