Apple Pie Oatmeal

I don't know about you, but sometimes I think oatmeal is boring *gasp.* Oatmeal is a great breakfast because it is filling and can be very flavorful. This oatmeal tastes more like apple pie than oatmeal. Yum!
recipe adapted from The Biggest Loser Cookbook

3 apples, coarsely chopped
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
2 c water
pinch salt (or leave out)
1 c old-fashioned oats
3 tsp sugar (or to taste)
optional: almonds or walnuts
  • Spray frying pan with a little oil. Place over medium heat and add apples, cinnamon, and vanilla. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes, or until the apples are soft.
  • Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring the water and salt to a boil. Add oats and reduce heat to medium and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and cover.
  • When apples are done, stir them into the oatmeal. Stir in sugar and nuts (if desired). 
  • Serve immediately.
