Apple Almond Oatmeal

Apple Almond Oatmeal
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 medium apple, diced (peeled if desired)
2 Tablespoons whole natural almonds
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch ground cloves
1-2 teaspoons ground flaxseed
brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup, to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 90 seconds until liquid is absorbed. Allow to set and enjoy!

Apples and almonds - what a classic combination! This bowl of oatmeal provides plenty of crunch, but the apple bakes up and becomes soft and sweet. It smells sort of like apple pie baking. A hearty balanced breakfast when served with a glass or milk or some yogurt.
