Happy, Healthy, and Homemade Apple Oatmeal

I’m sure you, just like the majority of the human population, get bored with the everyday breakfast choices you have available to you. Sure, you can grab a pace of instant oatmeal, but does that really satisfy your inner culinary god? I think not. *smiles* In this case, you absolutely have to try this! I was looking around online for some healthy breakfast ideas and ran across this Apple Oatmeal.

I highly recommend you try this recipe. I’ll tell you the recipe exactly how I made it. You know that I encourage you to add as you wish…maybe some pecans, walnuts, honey, etc (this will change the nutritional info though, so adjust accordingly).

Oh crud! Come to think of it….I forgot the cinnamon. Oh well, I can dash it on top before eating it in the morning. I have included it in your instructions though….*wink*

Happy, Healthy, and Homemade Apple Oatmeal

Makes 4 servings – 4 WW Points Plus per serving – 180 calories per serving

  • 2 apples, cored and sliced (feel free to chop them up smaller if you want) – I like the skin personally, and I chose Braeburn apples for a bit of sweetness.
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Melt butter in large pot (I used my large dutch oven), and add apple slices. Allow to cook in the pot until golden, or as soft as you want them. Mine took about 15 minutes or so with the lid on, and regular stirring.

The instructions say it reheats well, and I’ll be able to testify to that tomorrow when I have it for breakfast. *smiles*
