1. OPTIONAL TO SOFTEN: The night before, throw the water, raisins and then the oats into your blender. Let them sit overnight.
2. In the morning, start your blender While the water and oats are blending, chop the apple and then add it to the blender, too.
3. Continue blending until the oatmeal is a nice, smooth texture.
4. Top this oatmeal with more whole raisins and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Try some chopped up dates or apricots for sweetness or even some gojis. Want a more tropical flair? Throw a dash of coconut. Looking for some added protein? Why not try a nut butter. The possibilities are endless!
