Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup of chopped apples
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tbsp apple pie spice
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup water
  • --------------------
  • Apple Pie Spice
  • --------------------
  • *This makes about 1/3 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
  • 1/2 tsp all spice
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cardamom

Instructions
 

  • 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.
  • Place a pan on medium heat, adding a tablespoon of butter.
  • While pan is heating, chop your apples into small chunks.
  • Place apples in pan, mixing in with butter, and cooking for about 5 minutes until they begin to soften.
  • Sprinkle in apple pie spice and brown sugar, mixing into the apples, then pour 1/2 a cup of water into the pan.
  • Cook until much of the water has reduced, turning into a syrup like consistency.
  • While apple mixture is reducing, cook your oatmeal according to the package directions. I used 1/2 a cup of oatmeal, with 1 cup of water and microwaved for about 2 minutes.
  • Once oatmeal and apple mixture is cooked, sprinkle the apples and syrup on your oatmeal and enjoy!
