It’s apple season, which means we have a bucket full of apples that we picked from a farm last week and we still haven’t done anything with them.
Early this week I made my son a quick oatmeal breakfast with apples and he gobbled it all up. I’ve been making it nearly every day since. I eyeballed all the ingredients, but here’s my closest approximation.
Easy Apple Cinnamon Raisin Maple Oatmeal
- 1 small apple, cubed
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/3 cup quick oats
- 2/3 cup water
- pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
Place apples, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a pan over medium high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are soft – about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the oatmeal, water, salt and raisins in a bowl. Place on a plate (in case of spill over) and microwave for 2 minutes and 20 seconds.
When oatmeal is done, add the apple mixture, maple syrup and top with cream.
