How To Make Simple Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

You can have a hearty and delicious breakfast within 10 minutes with a few easy steps. To make apple cinnamon oatmeal, all you have to do is boil the oats in water, or milk of your choice.

Then you simply add flavor. The best flavors to compliment whole grain oats are vanilla, maple syrup (or brown sugar), cinnamon and nutmeg.

Oatmeal is also great with fruits of your liking and for this recipe, we’ll be using apples, but feel free to switch it up a few mornings out of the week and enjoy homemade oatmeal with blueberries, bananas, or strawberries instead. The pairings are endless!

If you’re adding fruit. the trick is to slightly cook them first, then add your oats, water and flavors last. Then let boil with a lid for about ten minutes and DONE!

I also like to top the oatmeal with pecans, sliced almonds, or walnuts – depending on the fruit. There’s nothing better than the added crunch of pecans with the apples and cinnamon.
