I am back in Vancouver for the holidays! Time to relax! Time to enjoy the lazy days leading up to Christmas.
Of course, if I was cooking for Christmas, it would be far from lazy. I understand how for some people, Christmas cooking can be like a full time job.
So when the time comes to make a fancy monstrously huge meal, I can ensure that your breakfast stays as quick and easy as possible.
And since I never want the fall (or the flavors of fall) to end with the coming of winter, I will be making this for as long as apples are on sale. And probably even longer than that.
This recipe also ensures that, if you aren't eating apple pie for dinner, you still have the opportunity to eat it for breakfast...in oatmeal form.
Even though this recipe isn't as quick and easy as some of my microwave oatmeal recipes, it is pretty darn easy, and this way, you can double, triple, quadruple this recipe to whatever proportions you need.
Who says getting your apple pie fix needs to be hard?
Apple Pie Oatmeal
Makes 1 bowl of oatmeal
What you'll need:
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 apple apple, cored and chopped (skins on)
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- In a small saucepan, bring the milk to a boil. Add in the apple, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar, and mix until fully incorporated.
- Turn the heat down to medium low, and let the oatmeal simmer for 5-10 minutes, stiring occasionally.
