Apple Pie Oatmeal

Apple Pie Oatmeal

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup water (or milk for creamier oatmeal)
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped apple
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon apple pie spice (or cinnamon)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Stir in the oats and salt. As soon as the water begins to boil again, reduce the heat to a simmer. Continue cooking - stirring occasionally - for 5 minutes or until you get your desired consistency.

In a small bowl, combine the chopped apple, brown sugar and spice. Stir until the apples are coated with sugar.

Dollop oatmeal into a serving bowl and top with the apple mixture and, if desired, crushed nuts.

For a more complete (although nutritionally inadvisable) apple pie experience, top it all off with a heaping Tablespoon of vanilla ice cream.

You can make your own apple pie spice at home by combining 4 teaspoons cinnamon, 2 teaspoons nutmeg and 1 teaspoon cardamom.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank kidpancake for this recipe.

Great idea! I've been using much the same recipe for for many years but spicing it up with Apple Cider in place of other liquids... love the addition of nutmeg too. Oh! If you have it on hand, spray some whipped cream on top! Merry Christmas!
