Power Pack Your Oats

The benefits of oats have been well known for a long time.  They are packed with fiber which can help lower both your cholesterol and blood sugars.  For me, oats don't seem to stick with me as long as I'd like, so I "power pack" them to give them a little more nutrition.  Skip the instant and go for the old fashion type--they microwave in 3 minutes!
Wendy's Power Packed Oats
1/2 cup old fashion oats
1 cup water
1 apple, grated
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
Place oats and water in microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 1 minute, stir, and microwave for 1-2 minutes more.  Toss in your apple, nuts, cinnamon and stir.  Serve with milk and enjoy!
