Laura's Dried Fruit and Flax Oatmeal

It is so easy to get in a rut with breakfast, same thing day after day. Laura's deliciously simple recipe adds even more nutrition to the ubiquitous rolled oats. Enjoy it with a mug of hot tea for a great start to your day.

Dried Fruit & Flax Oatmeal (1 serving)

1/2 cup 1% milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup dried fruit (such as dried blueberries or craisins)
1 tbsp. ground flaxseed
1 tsp honey
dash cinnamon

Bring milk, water and oats to a boil; simmer & stir for 5 minutes.
Add fruit, flaxseed, honey and cinnamon.

Suggestion: microwave, stirring at the halfway point. Stock up on a variety of dried fruits and experiment until you find the ones you love the most!
