Not just for horses, apples and oats are what’s for breakfast. This is how I prefer to have mine. Warning: This apple butter has addictive qualities but at 11 calories a tablespoon and zero fat, you’re in safe territory. Try it! You won’t be disappointed.
I use Bob’s Red Mill steel cut oats, follow the recipe on the bag (but I double it and refrigerate). During the week, it makes a really quick, warm and yummy breakfast. It keeps well in the fridge for a week but freezes really well also.
The apples part – I found an apple butter recipe in The Healthy Heart Cookbook (which I picked up at a thrift store for $2.99). It’s delicious and healthy and easy to make. I was really surprised at how good it is so because it really is so simple.
