Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Fall is officially here! I always enjoyed the prepackaged apple cinnamon and oatmeal during the fall. But the flavored oatmeal’s were one of the first things we cut out of our grocery bill to save money since the flavored oatmeal packets are so much more expensive than old fashioned oats. So I decided to try my hand at making my own apple cinnamon oatmeal. And guess what, it tastes way better than the packaged oatmeal! I didn’t calculate a comparison of prices but I am positive my recipe comes out cheaper and healthier. I added peanut butter and walnuts to the recipe to add a boost of protein, however you do not need to use both or either. But I enjoy it with peanut butter for a complete breakfast. By the way September is National Breakfast Month so happy National Breakfast Month Everyone!

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
½ cup old fashioned oats
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar (optional)
1 tablespoons peanut butter (optional)
1 tablespoon chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions
1. In a microwave safe bowl combine oats with one cup of water and the cinnamon, vanilla, and ground nutmeg. Place in microwave and cook for 2 ½ minutes.
2. Carefully remove bowl from microwave. Add applesauce, brown sugar, peanut butter and/or walnuts. Stir and enjoy!
