Autumn Apple Oatmeal

Fall is already here and, love it or hate it, so are Uggs, pumpkin spice everything, and your neighbors’ Halloween decorations rearing their scary heads.  One thing I love any time of the year is the classic combo of fresh apples and spicy cinnamon, and this oatmeal definitely reminds me of the kind I had as a kid from the paper packets but with a much needed twist!

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

-1/2 c. oatmeal

-1 c. water or milk of your choice

-1/4 of an apple finely chopped

-dash of salt

-dash of cinnamon

-1 teaspoon brown sugar

Add all of the ingredients to a microwave safe bowl and cook for about two minutes.  I like to top mine with toasted walnuts or pecans.  Of course, both the apples and the oatmeal can be made on the stove top, and sometimes I like to cook them separately and then spoon the apples over the top to make everything look a little nicer.  But on those busy mornings when the presentation of your breakfast is the last thing on your mind, this recipe can also be easily converted into the perfect overnight oats.  Enjoy!
