Today’s recipe started out as one I was going to make for G. I thought he’d really enjoy it, but as soon as I washed off the apple to chop it up he decided all he wanted was the apple.
So, he got an apple and I got apple pie oatmeal. He didn’t even want to try a bite, silly little boy.
That was kind of fine by me. I found the recipe on Family Feedbag and can’t wait to try more of their recipes.
Here’s what you need:
1 apple, cored and diced
1 cup water
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Start by boiling your water in a small pan. Add the rest of your ingredients and lower the heat to low. Simmer for 2 or 3 minutes while stirring. Spoon into a bowl and top with brown sugar and milk.
Or ice cream, if it’s that kind of morning.
This isn’t incredibly sweet, but it is incredibly good. It’s nice and filling and the combination of cooked apples, oats and cream….just mmm.
Try it out. This is a ridiculously quick dish to make, and if your kids won’t eat it? You really won’t mind. I promise.
