I was getting tired of traditional oatmeal for breakfast because following the anti-inflammatory diet plan, there were only so many ways I could come up with that made me happy. Then I thought about those no bake cookies we ate as a child and the oats weren't cooked!

Ingredients For oats and apple

  • 1-2 Tbsp
    olive oil
  • 1
    apple, cored & chopped
  • To taste
    ground cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, allspice
  • 1/4 c

  • 2-ish Tbsp
  • 1/2 c
    old fashioned oats

How To Make oats and apple

  • 1
    Preheat pan with enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. I put my setting on 5. You don't want to burn the apples, you just want them to be tender.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, core and chop apple into small, bite sized pieces and add to the pan
  • 3
    Sprinkle on desired spices to your taste. Tip; ginger is an anti-inflammatory and a dash or 2 would be great for you!
  • 4
    Stir apples
  • Cheaper to chop yourself.
    Add nuts. Tip; buy pecans & walnuts on sale and toss them in the freezer. It is also cheaper to purchase halves and chop them yourself.
  • 6
    Stir apples & nuts
  • 7
    Add honey. I don't really measure, I just go up and down one way then across the other way to coat the apples and nuts good.
  • 8
    Stir and continue to stir occasionally, until the apples have reached your desired tenderness. 5 or so minutes should work, depending on the thickness of your apples.
  • 9
    Meanwhile, pour your 1/2 cup of uncooked oatmeal into a 4-8 cup sized bowl.
  • Still hot!
    Once the apples have reached your desired tenderness, pour them into the bowl with the oats, and be sure to scrape all the honey into the bowl too.
  • 11
    Mix apple & oats until the oats are no longer dry & completely coated.
  • If you follow the anti-inflammatory diet plan, this meal cover's your PFF's.
    Eat alone or as a side or as a topper to whatever you wish. Great on pancakes!
