I love a big bowl of oats in the morning. It’s filling and such a warm and cozy meal. Creamy Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal is definitely one of my favorite combinations of flavors.

These oats are creamy, slightly sweet, packed with warm cinnamon flavor and so delicious. The best part, they require minimal ingredients and time while still providing such a nutritious breakfast.

After tasting these you will always go for homemade oats versus the packaged stuff! 

Ingredient Notes:

  • Oats – I use Old Fashioned Rolled Oats. 
  • Water – I generally cook my oats with water but you could also use any plant milk if you prefer. 
  • Apple – I like Gala or Pink Lady but whatever you have on hand will work. 
  • Raisins – I used just regular raisins however golden would be a nice touch. 
  • Walnuts – If you do not have walnuts something like pecans or even almonds would work as well. 
  • Cinnamon – I always put at least a dash of cinnamon in my oats. It adds such a great flavor. 
  • Maple Syrup – The pure stuff not the breakfast kind. 
Labeled ingredients for oatmeal.

How To Make:

In a small pot add all of your ingredients: water, oats, shredded apple, raisin, walnuts, cinnamon and maple syrup. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium.

Simmer oats for 5 minutes stirring occasionally until soft and creamy.

Enjoy!

Variations:

  • Dried Fruit – If you are not a fan of raisins you could really use any dried fruit in place of them. Dates would be great. Just dice them up before adding them to the pot. 
  • Nuts – I use walnuts in this recipe but pecans, almonds or even macadamia nuts would work well. 
  • Sweetener – Maple Syrup is something I always have on hand but agave or coconut sugar would be good replacements. Brown Sugar would be the ultimate add in, a little less healthy but delicious nonetheless! 

Can I Make A Larger Batch?

Absolutely! This recipe serves one however you can double, triple or even quadruple the recipe with no issues. 

It would be excellent to make in a large pot for a hearty family breakfast. It will also make the house smell amazing! Win win.
