"Another low-calorie recipe from the Hungry Girl newsletter. I've found that I don't care for chilled oatmeal, and like the HG parfait recipes much better if the oatmeal is warm. so I skip the directions to chill the prepared oatmeal."

Step 1

Combine oatmeal ingredients in a small nonstick pot. Add 3/4 cup water and mix. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 9 minutes. Stir often. When thick and creamy, removed from heat. Cool slightly. Refrigerate about 90 minutes until chilled. (I don't chill the oatmeal)

Step 2

In a small bowl, combine yogurt with 1/8 teaspoons cinnamon. Set aside.

Step 3

Stir oatmeal until uniform in texture. Spoon half into a tall glass, top with half the yogurt and half the chopped apple. Repeat.

I saw this and knew I had to make it this morning for breakfast. I love the simplicity of HG's recipes and she certainly knows how to cut the calories. This was very good and I look forward to having it often for a change of pace at breakfast.
