I think putting in the whole apple is the point of this recipe - a brilliant way to up your fruit and veg intake. I did follow my daughter's advice, though (she discovered the recipe) and grated the apple in - quicker than dicing and the grated apple blends really nicely with the oats. Cinnamon is a must but even I, with quite a sweet tooth, didn't find the need for the sugar on top!

I thought 1 apple per person was too much, so next time I'll reduce it to half an apple per person. I added some cinnamon to the oats whilst they were cooking with the milk and it tasted so good!

I make this using oat bran instead of rolled oats for a higher nutritional value.

So I use 1/4 cup oat bran, 1/4 cup water and then 1/2 cup either soya milk or skimmed milk.

I also add one heaped tsp cinnamon and only use 1/2 to 3/4 of the apple (pink lady is my favourite) and 20-25g of sultanas or a couple of chopped dates. I generally don't sweeten this but when I feel like it a add a half teaspon of sweetener or on decadant days a drizzle of honey.

So I make a similar but healthier version! It really is delicious and a fantastic (and quick) breakfast.

I use a teaspoon of honey with mine, instead of sugar, and also a half a cap full of almond extract/essence

Great recipe. I left it on the stove for a little longer than suggested and added cinnamon. Really tasty.
