I made this for my families Sunday Big Breakfast. My family liked it. When I made this I used Juicy Juice apple juice, I used sweetened cinnamon applesauce as that's what I had on hand, and I added 1/2 teaspoon more cinnamon. I tripled the batch and it turned out just fine. I had enough to feed my family and still have some for breakfast the next day. I thought it is very filling. I think it would be great with chunky applesauce. I got the recipe from Everyday Health.
- Mix oats and juice in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and cover. Let stand for 5 minutes.
- Add applesauce and cinnamon and stir well. For more fiber, add 1 tablespoon dried fruit, nuts or bran.
I also used apple Juicy Juice but natural applesauce and added a shake or two more cinnamon. The oatmeal was very easy to make and I doubled the recipe with no trouble at all but it was to sweet for us. Next time I would use half apple juice and half water and add raisins or cranraisins. Made and reviewed for the Healthy Choices Tag Game.
I thought this turned out great, but I had to make some adjustments. The first time I made it as written (cut it into a 1/4 for a snack) but the oats were mushy. Then I used 1/3 cup apple juice (no sugar added kind) & 1/4 cup rolled oats. I microwaved it for 1 min, then added the applesauce (no sugar added!) & 1/4 tsp cinn. I topped it with a Splenda pkt. Tasted great! Next time I'll add more things like raisins, vanilla yogurt & probably some more fruit. I love apples, but since it's always for one serving, I usually can't cut up a whole apple to use! So recipes like this are a welcome find where I can get that great flavor :-). Thank u for sharing.
