A good hearty dish to start the day. I wasn't so fond of the lemon in this, although I may have been heavy handed with it and added too much. Combined with my granny smith apple, I found I had to add quite a bit of brown sugar to mellow out the tartness. My mistake for using such a tart apple. I'd make again, only with a sweeter apple and less lemon. Otherwise I found the consistency was great, very creamy.

I doubled this, left the skin on the apples and left out the butter. Swirled vanilla yoghurt through to serve and it was delicious. Made for Potluck Tag Game.

I made it for my son and he liked it. He ate it with brown sugar on top. I tasted it and the taste is really good. I omitted the lemon juice and butter. Thanks Kelly :) Made for Potluck tag game

Mmmm, creamy, thick, filling, healthy, fruity and yummy!!! What else could you wish for in your morning oatmeal?! I made this using a chai spiced oat milk, which worked out beautifully and added a lovely holiday taste. The apple made for a nice fruity sweetness in the dish, which I really enjoyed! I will surely make this often again as it is so easy and super yummy! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this gem of a recipe with us, KellyMac! Made and reviewed for Potluck Tag Octobre 09.

KellyMac - this is a nice change to morning oatmeal. I liked the texture of the apples in the oatmeal but the oatmeal itself it just a tad too thick for me - I think adding a bit more milk helps the consistancy. I added a sprinkle of brown sugar on top and also a sprinkle of cinnamon. A nice hearty breakfast that stays with you through the morning. Very tasty overall. Made for the Potluck Tag game

Always looking for new ways to serve up my morning oats and this was appealing to me. I loved the grated apple addition and will do that more often. My batch came out very thick, oatmeal of the "sits up on the spoon" variety and the apples added to that firmness. For me, I would probably add another 1/8 to 1/4 cup of water to add a little more creaminess to blend with the milk (in my case soy milk). Made for Potluck Tag.
