As American As Apple Pie Oatmeal

This makes a great 4th of July breakfast. It's your Independence Day from boring oatmeal. Top with whipped cream and it tastes a lot like apple pie. For another 4th of July breakfast idea, check out Red, White & Blue Oatmeal Parfaits.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.

A bit too sweet for me but still very good.

I like the vanilla and maple flavor in this. If you top it with a little granola (and whipped cream), it tastes exactly like apple cobbler!

This recipe is excellent. Simple but really really good. I used extra apple and also added in a few sprinkles of clove, some fresh grated nutmeg and a small dash of ginger. Tasted close to my apple pie. YUM. Served with fresh whipped cream and cold milk. Will be making this one VERY often! Thanks!
