Snack Attack: Walnut Raisin Oatmeal

Cold weather makes me crave warm foods, which unfortunately take more time to prepare. That's why I like making a big batch of something and storing it in the fridge - then you can scoop out as much as you want and re-heat it for a quick warm snack or meal.

Walnut Raisin Oatmeal is one of my favorites, and it's not just for breakfast, anymore.

You'll need:

2 cups water or milk
2 cups 100% whole grain oats (you can also use quick oats - they just dontt have as much fiber)
1/3 cup maple syrup or honey
2 medium apples: cored, peeled, and diced
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1/2 cup walnuts

Bring the water or milk to a gentle boil. Stir in oats, apples, and syrup or honey. Return to a boil, then reduce to medium heat. Cook 5 minutes (1 minute for quick oats), or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, then stir in cinnamon, walnuts, and raisins.

Place it in a big Tupperware container, or divide it into 4 containers, to be easily warmed up in the microwave later.

Why we love it:
Whole grains such as oats are healthy for your heart, lower your cholesterol, and are a good source of fiber.
Dried fruits such as raisins or cranberries give you energy, and are low in fat. Raisins are also good for your teeth.
Walnuts are high in "good" fats, so they help to reduce the "bad" cholesterol.
