Try making your own instant oatmeal for breakfast at work or school. Just prep the night before, add boiling water, wait a few minutes and eat! We love the tanginess from the apple butter and the richness from just a little bit of butter.
cup instant oatmeal
dried apple rings, chopped
Tbsp apple butter
Tbsp unsalted butter
tsp light brown sugar
&frac18; tsp ground cinnamon
Special equipment: an 8-ounce lidded heat-safe container
Put the oatmeal, apple rings, apple butter, raisins, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of salt in an 8-ounce lidded heat-safe container. Secure the lid, and refrigerate up to overnight.
When ready to eat, add 1/2 cup boiling water, stir gently and cover until the oats are tender and the apple rings have softened, about 3 minutes. Stir again, and eat warm.
