Pretty Oatmeal

I love this oatmeal because not only is it delicious, but it looks so beautiful.  It has a real rustic, homemade look because, well, it is homemade, and you can see all the little chunks of fruit and specks of cinnamon... so pretty!

Anyway, I'm eating it right now for breakfast.  Here's the recipe... wait.  This is so hard, because I rarely measure ANYTHING!  Here's my estimate, so you'll have to do what looks right.  Here's what you need.

So, thats:
1 1/2-2 c almond (or rice) milk in a pot
1 c oats
chopped apple (or peaches, berries, or any other fresh fruit)
raisins (or cherries, or any other dried fruit)
cinnamon
blackstrap molasses (or maple syrup, whatever)
earth balance butter
vanilla extract
toasted salted nuts

Bring the milk to a simmer, add the oatmeal, raisins, and apples, reduce heat and simmer until it starts to thicken, turn off heat, stir in cinnamon, molasses, earth balance, and vanilla.  Let it sit.  When thick to your liking, serve with a little almond milk and nuts sprinkled over top.
