Oats contain 3 grams of fiber per serving; half of an apple contributes 2.5 grams of fiber; and the two dates have a combined 4 grams of fiber. Use un-blanched almonds to take advantage of the fiber in the brown husk.
- 1/3 cup dry old-fashioned oats (not instant)
- ½ apple, with skin, chopped
- 2 dates, chopped
- 10 almonds, chopped
Combine the oats, apples and dates together in a small pot with 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, or until thick and most of the water is absorbed. Top with the chopped almonds and a splash of milk, if desired.
