1 crisp apple, such as Braeburn or Crispin, cored and diced with skin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar, plus more to taste
3 cups water
2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup ground/milled or whole flax seed (or a combination of both)
1/4 cup chopped dried apples
1/4 cup golden raisins
3/4 cup soy milk

Steam apple until soft, 2 minutes. Add cinnamon and sugar and cook until dissolved. Add the water and bring to a boil. Add the oats, wheat germ, flax, dried apples and raisins. Stir constantly for 2 minutes until oats are cooked and dried fruit is slightly plumped. Divide into 4 bowls, sprinkle each bowl with more brown sugar, a drizzle of soy milk and a dried apple ring.
