Directions for: Apple Pie Oatmeal



½ cup apples, chopped

1 Tbsp butter

½ Tbsp apple pie spice (see recipe below)

1 Tbsp brown sugar

½ cup water

½ cup quick oats

1 cup water

Apple Pie Spice

5 Tbsp cinnamon

1 ½ tsp nutmeg

½ tsp allspice

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp cardamom



1. Place a pan on medium heat, adding a Tablespoon of butter.

2. While pan is heating, chop your apples into small chunks.

3. Place apples in pan, mixing in with butter, and cooking for about 5 minutes until they begin to soften.

4. Sprinkle in apple pie spice and brown sugar, mixing into the apples, then pour 1/2 a cup of water into the pan.

5. Cook until much of the water has reduced, turning into a syrup like consistency.

6. 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.

Apple Pie Spice

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.
