Microwave Apple Oatmeal

I wish all my readers a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. May all your wishes and dreams come true this year.
 
I am starting the new year on a healthy note, with this simple, humble dish that takes about five minutes from start to finish. There is no need for any sweeteners in this fiber rich breakfast as the apple does the job. If still one prefers extra sweetness, a sweetener of choice can be added. Besides the natural sweetness, the crunchy apple bits lend a nice texture to the oatmeal.
Ingredients:
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup milk (I use fat-free milk.)
One small sized apple, finely diced
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon (optional)
2 tbsp. nuts / dry fruits of your choice

Method:
* Add everything except the toppings to a big sized microwave safe glass bowl. Microwave for 4 to 5 minutes or until done, stirring intermittently once or twice. Keep an eye on the oatmeal to avoid the milk flowing over into the microwave.
* Remove the container and add extra warm milk if needed, to reach the desired consistency.
* Add toppings of choice and serve immediately.
