Give your boring old oatmeal a boost with an apple pie style topping!
Ingredients
  • ½ cup of chopped apples
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • ½ tbsp apple pie spice
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ cup of water
  • ½ cup quick oats
  • 1 cup water
  • --------------------
  • Apple Pie Spice
  • --------------------
  • *This makes about ⅓ cup of spice, which I store in a jar and sprinkle in things like oatmeal, french toast batter, whipping cream and more!
  • 5 tbsp cinnamon
  • 11/2 tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp all spice
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cardamom
Instructions
  1. Combine ingredients for apple pie spice into a jar, shaking to combine. If you would rather not use apple pie spice, you could do a simpler version, just using cinnamon.
  2. Place a pan on medium heat, adding a tablespoon of butter.
  3. While pan is heating, chop your apples into small chunks.
  4. Place apples in pan, mixing in with butter, and cooking for about 5 minutes until they begin to soften.
  5. Sprinkle in apple pie spice and brown sugar, mixing into the apples, then pour ½ a cup of water into the pan.
  6. Cook until much of the water has reduced, turning into a syrup like consistency.
  7. While apple mixture is reducing, cook your oatmeal according to the package directions. I used ½ a cup of oatmeal, with 1 cup of water and microwaved for about 2 minutes.
  8. Once oatmeal and apple mixture is cooked, sprinkle the apples and syrup on your oatmeal and enjoy!
