1/3 cup unsweetened apple juice
1/3 cup water
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 firm apple, pared and finely sliced
1/3 cup quick-cooking oats
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Place juice, water, apple and seasonings in microwave proof measuring cup. Microwave for 2 1/2 minutes.
Place oatmeal in microwave proof serving bowl. Add microwaved apple mixture to oatmeal.
Microwave 1 min for quick oats, 3 minutes for regular.
Notes: Seasonings can be adjusted according to taste. Half apples keep well until the next day or two by wrapping the unpeeled half in plastic wrap. Granny Smith or Macintosh apples are great for this.
