Apple Snapple Oatmeal
(4 servings) Printable Version
In a saucepan, put the chopped apple or pear, apple juice or cider, oats, raisins or dates, and cinnamon. Stir with a wooden spoon to mix. Put the pan on the burner. Turn the burner to medium-high heat. Cook just till bubbly. Turn the burner to low. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring now and then. Turn off the burner. Remove the saucepan from the burner.
With a large spoon, put the oatmeal into 4 cereal bowls. Serve immediately with milk and brown sugar, if you like.
This can also be made in the microwave. Just reduce the liquid to 2 and 1/2 cups. Microwave the stirred ingredients on high for 3 minutes in a covered microwaveable 2-quart casserole dish. Stir and microwave 3 minutes more.
For a fun change, try using pear instead of apple in this recipe. Just a little brown sugar on top makes this oatmeal even better.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.

Had no raisins or dates. Added stevia to the juice, which I made with a cup of soy milk and 1 1/2 apple.

Just tried it this a.m. with Craisins. I doubled the cinnamon & served it w/no added b. sugar or milk -- Great!

Great starter recipe. I cut back to 2 1/2 cups juice (other wise it was soupie) and reduced w/apples and 1/2 tsp cinammon before adding oatmeal. Also added 2 tbsp brown sugar. Really yummy.

This is a favorite breakfast food here at our house. We add in 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts for added goodness (they add SO much flavor!)

I don't like regular oatmeal, but by substituting the water with apple juice, this recipe is delicious! Oatmeal is so good for you and I am so glad that I found a way to enjoy it! Thank you Mr Breakfast!

I am always trying to get my family to eat oatmeal, and this recipe worked, they loved it! It reminds me of an apple pie.

Made almost as directed. I'd never just used a juice for the liquid before so I used half juice and half milk. Next time, I'll try all juice, because it adds a whole lot of flavor to the oats. Also... I love these old cookbook recipes. Please do more!
