This easy oatmeal recipe cooks in just 5 minutes. While this healthy oatmeal recipe calls for coconut and apricots, other dried fruits, such as raisins and cranberries, also are delicious.

- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 6 dried apricots, chopped
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
- Combine water, oats and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until creamy, about 5 minutes. Serve topped with apricots and coconut.
