Cinnamon-Cider Raisin Oatmeal
There’s nothing better than a warm bowl of oats on a chilly morning. Now, thanks to certified gluten-free oats out on the market, more people can enjoy them! (Note: Because there is a small percentage of people with Celiac disease that cannot tolerate even the purest of oats, check with your doctor before consuming to make sure they are OK as a part of your diet.)
1/2 cup Raisins
2/3 cup Apple cider
1 1/2 cups Water
1/8 teaspoon Salt
2 cups Rolled Oats, Certified Gluten Free*
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Maple syrup
Soak raisins in apple cider for 15 minutes.
Strain cider from raisins into a small pot. Reserve the soaked raisins.
Add the water and salt to the cider, and bring mixture to a boil.
Add the oats, reduce heat, then simmer for 10-18 minutes, or until the oats reach a consistency you like. Stir in the cinnamon, the soaked raisins and maple syrup. Remove from heat, cover, and let oats stand a couple minutes before serving.
*If you do not need this dish to be gluten-free, then you may use regular rolled oats as well.
Makes 2 servings.
