Oatmeal: Grated Apple, Raisins and Cinnamon

Before I do “long” runs, I eat a big bowl of oatmeal beforehand and I have noticed that when I do, I can push out a few extra k’s and I stay fuller for much longer as the combination of fruit and oats is perfect energy fuel.

This is episode 2 in the oatmeal series. Grated apple, raisins and cinnamon give it an almost baked, comfort food feel.

Love it. Get it into ya.

Cook it:

  1. Start by grating the apple
  2. Add the oats, soy milk and water to a saucepan and put on a low to medium heat
  3. Using a soft spatula (or just wooden spoon if you don’t have one) keep stirring for about 2-3 minutes (or until the consistency is a bit too loose)
  4. Add the grated apple, sugar and raisins and continue cook until the desired consistency is reached
  5. Serve sprinkled with a dash (eeugh) of cinnamon
  6. Easy. Now go for a run, lard-arse (I’m talking to me)
