  • Pour the oatmeal into the saucepan with the water from cooking the apples, bring to a boil and then reduce cooking for a total of 4-5 minutes, stirring as needed.

  • Serve while warm with more oat milk if desired.

Notes

  • You can use whatever apples you have on hand. We prefer more of a firm apple, not a softer apple like McIntosh.
  • Cinnamon is one of our favorite warm spices, you could also add nutmeg, cloves, or even pumpkin spice or apple pie spice.You can use gluten-free oatmeal or traditional rolled oats. You could also use steel-cut oats if you have more time to cook.
  • If you cannot use maple syrup or do not like it you could use your preferred sweetener.
  • Use your favorite plant-based milk to keep this apple cinnamon oatmeal vegan or you can use regular dairy if desired.
  • Save the apple core and any apple scraps to add to your next simmer pot or compost them.
