Wow. I never thought that I could ever be impressed by oatmeal 'cause, let's face it, oatmeal is usually just not that impressive. But you have gone and done what I thought was impossible. This was really good. My only complaint is that the apples (I used honeycrisp.) were a bit too sour for me. Then again, I am very sensitive to sourness; so, I wouldn't say that's your fault. The only thing I can think of that might make this taste any better is if the apples were sweetened and cooked before being added to the oatmeal. But then, it probably wouldn't be as healthy. But I might try it sometime anyway. :) Thanks! UPDATE: I made this again today, but I didn't have any apple juice. So, I pureed 1/4 of an apple with the water to make my own juice (for just one serving). Since I am watching what I eat, I used a packet of Splenda and 1/4 teaspoon molasses. And it still tastes great! Neither my husband or I could really even taste the Splenda in it!
Way too much effort for me in the morning although it was very yum! TY kitty
Yummy breakfast this morning, thank you for posting! I used Johnagold apples with great results. I also used apple cider instead of apple juice; worked well. Mine was cooked in 3.5 minutes.
