Almond Apricot Oatmeal

I don't normally like oatmeal, I find it quite bland. However it is good for you; high in fibre, low in fat and complex carbohydrates. I love almonds and fruit, so this recipe was a perfect winter breakfast!

Almond Apricot Oatmeal

5og rolled oats
50g natural almonds or ground almonds
200ml low fat milk
1/4 cup Splenda or Sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
100g apricots, chopped + one apricot half
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Shredded coconut to garnish

Place almonds in food processor and process until it forms a fine crumb texture. Place oats in a pot with milk and simmer until oats are softened. Add almonds, splenda, vanilla essence, nutmeg, cinnamon and apricots. Cook until oatmeal reaches desired texture.

Remove from heat and pour into bowl. Garnish with an apricot half and shredded coconut. Enjoy!
