How to Make Warm Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
Prep: Start by prepping apples. Dice apple in to small chunks. To prevent browning I like to add cut apples to a bowl of water. Set aside.
Cook: Heat a medium to large saucepan and add water, milk, and rolled oats. Cook oatmeal for about 5 minutes or according to instructions.
Sautee: While oatmeal cooks on the stove top heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add a touch of butter or cooking spray to pan. Once melted add apple chunks. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg on top and stir to evenly combine. Apple should start to soften. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until it’s nice and tender according to your preference.
Season: Once oatmeal has been cook season with brown sugar and sprinkle on top additional cinnamon.
Combine: Top oatmeal with warm sauteed apples and finish with chopped pecans or any other nuts you have on hand.
