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 remind me of those little packet of oats that I would sometimes get at a friends house. Although these are much healthier for you. Growing up I always loved when I would get to have flavored oat as they weren’t something my mom would buy from the store. 

It’s probably a funny thing to want to have for most kids but for me I was always excited for the apple cinnamon flavor or strawberries and cream. Maybe strawberries and cream will be my next recipe creation! 

The best part about these oats is 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. 
  • 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.
