Oatmeal with brown sugar and apples.
There is something about having a bowl of hot creamy oatmeal on a very chilly Autumn morning that I find very comforting. Im glad Autumn is here, especially after the hot, dry, and very dreadful summer we had just experienced here in Texas. Autumn is my favorite season. I love the chilly days,wearing comfy sweaters, the colors of the leaves, the aroma of cinnamon and freshly baked pumkin pie, and just the time of relaxation before the holidays arrive.
Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal
Adapted from: 5dollardinners
- 2 cp. water (or milk)
- 1 cp. old fashioned oats
- 1 large apple (I used 2 small Jonathon apples)
- about 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- a pinch of salt
- 3 tbsp. brown sugar
2. Core and chop the apples into bite-sized pieces.
3. Once the oatmeal has thickened & is gently boiling, stir in the apples and brown sugar. Cook for a few more minutes; if you like softer apples, then cook for about 3-4 minutes.
I like to top mine with some chopped pecans and extra brown sugar.
Bananas would also be good to top each bowl with, if desired.
