Apple pie oatmeal

One of the most popular recipes here on Family Feedbag is banana coconut oatmeal. And since I like it when you like it, I've decided to share another oatmeal recipe from my kitchen that's both yummalicious and healthy.

Having kids means my days always start a little earlier than I would like. But a yummy breakfast makes getting out of bed feel almost worth it. Almost. Especially when breakfast tastes like warm apple pie!

Forget about getting the mid-morning snackies. This breakfast keeps me going for hours.

Here's how I make it:

1 apple, cored and chopped (skins on)
1 cup water
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

I bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Then I add the oats, apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The heat gets adjusted to low and the oatmeal is simmered for 2-3 minutes while I stir and feel hungry. That's all there is to it. Serve it with a splash of milk and a little or a lot of brown sugar sprinkled on top.

This recipe makes enough for one hungry grown-up or two very lucky children.
