Apple Oatmeal

Good morning! I have a yummy recipe to share with you all! It’s been awhile since I’ve made anything worth writing about. Truth be told, Larry’s been doing a lot of the cooking and dinner prep this month. I’ve been either too tired or too busy running around getting ready for baby #2.

September is one of my favorite months of the year. I love the cool, crisp mornings and the warm afternoons and  early evenings. I woke up Monday morning to a cool breeze coming in through my window and I immediately wanted baked oatmeal and a coffee from Colectivo. Fall is definitely in the air! But, since I really didn’t want to get up and get myself and Madelyn dressed just for oatmeal, I decided to make something similar on my own. My for the first time in probably years, I cooked up some oatmeal on the stove instead of the microwave. I chopped up an apple, threw in a cinnamon stick and added some other things and I had a delicious & hearty breakfast for the two of us. With leftovers for the week!

Directions
Cook the oatmeal according to the package. Add in cubed apple, cinnamon stick, sugar, cinnamon and honey. Cook until apple is softened and oatmeal is done. Spoon into bowl and top with pecans (optional). Enjoy warm! For this particular recipe I used Trader Joe’s gluten free oatmeal & almond milk and it turned out just as wonderful as the oatmeal at Colectivo!
