- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄3 cup oatmeal
- 2⁄3 cup low-fat milk
- 2 tablespoons walnuts (chopped) (optional)
- In a small saucepan saute apple in butter for 2-3 minutes or until starting to soften.
- Add cinnamon and brown sugar, stir and simmer one minute.
- Stir in oatmeal, milk and walnuts if desired.
- Stir and cook for 3-5 minutes or until oatmeal is cooked and everything smells good.
- Serve with love.
Great recipe, my little ones gave it 10 stars!!!! I used slow cooking oats, and soaked them for 12 hrs to make them more digestible, then drained them really well. I used coconut oil in place of the butter, and chopped the apples really fine (my picky son doesn't like "stuff" in his oatmeal) I used 2 tbsps of maple syrup in place of brown sugar and cooked the apples well before adding the oats and milk. I didn't really measure the oats or the milk. I think I used closer to 2/3 cup of oats, and just added the milk until it was the right consistency. We topped each bowl with a little more syrup and my kids gobbled it up. It was just enough to serve 2 preschoolers. I've been looking for a home made oatmeal to replace the pre-packaged stuff I've been using. This recipe is a winner, thanks so much for posting it :D:D
This was great! My apples were leftovers, so they were already sliced & cooked in some cinn & Splenda, so the hard part was done! I didn't use any brown sugar but did add some more cinn. For a snack just for me, I used 1/4 cup rolled oats & 1/3 cup milk-I like my oatmeal creamy but not too thin! Instead of nuts, I added some raisins & made it a little too sweet by adding a Splenda pkt-it didn't really need it! Topped it with some vanilla yogurt & a little sugar free maple syrup-a great treat! Thank u for sharing.
This was great and reminded me of the flavored oatmeal packages at the store, but with this one...you know what you are eating. I also liked that that I got a whole apple with my breakfast. I used regular oats (not quick) and it took about 4 minutes to cook. I also used a lot less than 1 tbsp butter, and it wasn't missed at all.
