Apple Pie Oatmeal

Oats are really good for you! But they're a bit bland. So what does one do? Add sugar, milk, syrup, raisins.... not always turning the oatmeal into a healthy breakfast. 

Well, today, I was in an apple mood so I turned my oatmeal into the essence of a slice of pie but with healthy ingredients. 

Apple Pie Oatmeal
Serves 2-3

1 & 1/2 c water
1/2 c apple juice
1 c oats
Dash of salt
Prepare the oatmeal according to directions on box. 
Put into 2 bowls

Top with the following ingredients, splitting between both bowls:
1/3 c applesauce
1/4 apple, cut into chunks or 1/4 c dried apple pieces
1/4 c chopped walnuts (or any nut of choice)
Dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste
If you're a hard core New Englander, top with a little shredded cheddar cheese

Believe me, these bowls will get emptied real quick! And it's going to stick with you all morning. Oatmeal with flavor! Yum!
