Get ready for Apple Season - Super Oatmeal Breakfast

I'm looking forward to Autumn - I know, I know, it's only the beginning of August.  However, the other day, I tried a new way of making and serving oatmeal cereal.  Here's the recipe:

Super French Vanilla Oatmeal Breakfast

4 c. water
1/2 t. salt
2 c. Regular (not instant) Rolled Oats
1 T. ground Cinnamon
1/2 c. Dried Apples or 1 fresh Apple, peeled, cored and sliced
1/3. c. Raisins
Coffee Mate French Vanilla non-dairy creamer
Brown Sugar or Splenda

Place water, salt, apples and raisins in a 2-quart saucepan and bring to the boil, uncovered.

Add oatmeal......

and cinnamon....

turn heat to Low and stir a little until boiling is calmed.

Cover and let cook on low for about 10 minutes.

Stir before serving.... looks good.

Sprinkle with sweetener (Splenda, brown or white sugar)....

add creamer or milk and Voila!

I had mine with creamer and Splenda and my favorite, de-caf Chai Tea.  A creamy, cinnamony, chewy, satisfying way to enjoy oatmeal.  What a way to lower cholesterol, eh?


  1. Hello and Good Evening, That looks so yummy!! I cannot wait for Apple Harvest here in NY so I can make it. Anna

  2. Oh Anna....apples in NY. We were in Montreal late one summer and enjoyed the many orchards there, not too far north of where you are. It was lovely. Here in WA, apple harvest is a big deal too. Our land is in the semi-arid part of the state and we aren't trying to grow apples, yet. I'm thinking it might be too hot. But we can just take a little trip over to the apple-growing area in the fall and get all that we want. I dry them, too, by the bushel. Thank you for coming by.

  3. I had forgotten how much I like oatmeal! Thanks for the recipe - going to try it this morning.

    1. I hope you enjoy it very much. Thank you for stopping by.

  4. This looks delicious. I'm going to have to try this recipe.
