Another recipe that uses the blender/food-processor/hand-blender technique:
Creamy & Cozy Oatmeal
1/2 cup rolled oats (or one serving of your grain of choice; the photo is of whole-grain Cream of Wheat)
1 container applesauce (the little 113gram containers, not one entire jar!)
½ tsp cinnamon
milk of choice (I use almond milk)
Other optional ingredients that might be nice:
raisins, dates, nuts, chocolate… oops, how’d that last one sneak onto the list?!
Cook up a serving of oatmeal, using milk of choice in place of the water. Add the applesauce and cinnamon to the cooked oatmeal, and mix together. You could stop here, and it’d taste delicious… BUT if you *really* want to experience oatmeal nirvana, take this next step: Using a hand-blender (or transferring the mixture to a regular blender or food processor), blend all the ingredients together. The resulting oatmeal is so super-creamy it’s amazing!
