I enjoyed this for breakfast this morning! I found it to be sweet enough with the apples and apple juice, so I didn't need the brown sugar. I'm going to try this with some other fruits and spices. This is a quick and easy breakfast, and one that I'll enjoy often. Thanks for sharing!
We enjoy a similar oatmeal often in the winter. Since there are just the 2 of us, I cook it in 2 bowls in the microwave. I also add a variety of dried fruits to change it up, such as chopped apricots, cranberries, dates, etc., softening the chopped fresh apple + any dried fruits in the water/milk first before adding the old-fashioned oats. When fully cooked, I stire in 1 tsp. ground flax seed to each serving and sprinkle the top with 2 tsp. chopped pecans.
The DS has been hounding me to make him porridge for quite some time so I made a one serve of this for him using the optional milk though not the brown sugar at the end and I used 1/2 a pink lady apple (leaving skin on) and he thoroughly enjoyed his breakfast, thank you Annacia made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
