Oatmeal

Oatmeal
Options:  add Chia Seeds or Quinoa

Apples, Bananas, Kiwi, Pineapple or Oranges (cut to desired look)
1/4 teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla
2 Tablespoons of sweetener (raw sugar, honey, or maple syrup) to taste
1/4 cup of water

For the Oatmeal, prepare as directed on the package. Use the measured portion for the quantity of persons served.
In separate pan, I heat the water. I then add the cut apples in a pan, add cinnamon, vanilla and the sweetener. Bring to a boil, and then let simmer to a syrup-like consistency. I usually add softer fruit like bananas or
kiwi at the end. 

I don't mind my apples soft, but I don't like my bananas soggy. I don't recommend covering with a lid, as the fruit mixture definitely gets soggy
too quickly. 

When adding Quinoa, I cook it with the oatmeal, or you can cook it in a separate pan and add together after they have both cooked. I add the
Chia seeds at the end, as my daughter doesn't like the Chia seeds.

Honestly, I have a tendency to eyeball ingredients and make some
recipes to taste. You may want something more or less sweeter, or with more or less cinnamon. I would add a little at a time, though. You can easily overpower your dish (if you are heavy handed or your eyeball is off that day.)
