Recipe by ColCadsMom
I came up with this recipe after eating Banana Bread Oatmeal. I was out of bananas, and was really wanting a warm, comforting bowl of oatmeal that could be made quickly. I already had a can of lite no sugar added apple pie filling that had been opened, so I thought I'd give it a try. If you want it to be a sweet as pie, you might want to add some brown sugar instead of or in addition to the sweetener. Feel free to add raisins if you like them (I don't) and to add to or take away from the spices.

I was hoping to love this. I don't know if it was the lite apple pie filling, or what, but it seemed to lack flavor. I might try making it with regular pie filling next time. It's a great idea, I just couldn't get very excited about it. Thanks anyway.
