Unprocessed Apples and Cinnamon Oatmeal

I like to make this in the morning for my kids before school to give them a good hearty breakfast. I usually start it 10 minutes before they get up, and just let it cook while I am working on lunches. This recipe makes 4 kid-sized bowls [or 2 kids and 1 hungry mom ;)]

1 c Quaker oats
1/8 c whole flax seed
1 TBSP Splenda, honey, agave nectar, or sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
dash cinnamon
2 c skim milk

Mix the ingredients in a small saucepan over low-medium heat. Stir occasionally until thickened, 10-15 minutes. Top with 1/4 c applesauce.
