Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal

 When I was in the store yesterday I really wanted to get the Quaker's Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal but then I remembered I still have a bunch of oatmeal left from making oatmeal raisin cookies last month. A lot of recipes will want you to dump all the ingredients into the pot (very easy!) but since I like mine as a topping, I cooked the apple and oatmeal separately. This recipe makes enough Cinnamon Apple for two servings or if you like a lot of apple then just one serving. You can use any sort of sweetener with the apple or even none at all depending on the kind of apple you use and how sweet you like your Cinnamon Apple. You can use any kind of oats you want, also you can just use water only instead of a combo water and milk to cook the oats.

Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup Oats of your choice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 chopped medium Gala apple
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1/2 tbs honey
  • 1 tsp lemon juice (optional)
In a small pot on medium high heat, add chopped apple, ground cinnamon, brown sugar, honey, lemon juice. Cook until the apple pieces are soft (or to the texture of your liking), for me it took about 5 minutes. Transfer the cooked apple pieces to a small bowl. In the same pot, add water, milk and oats. Cook according to the direction of the type of oats you use. Spoon the cooked oats to a bowl and topped it with your cooked apple pieces.
