Apples and Cinnamon Oatmeal

This is a very simple way to dress up your healthy oatmeal breakfast.
When I was a kid I always enjoyed getting the Quaker instant oatmeal breakfast before school. My mom would buy the variety packs.  And my brothers and I would each have our favorite flavors. Mine was the apple one.

Of course, in more recent years I have come to enjoy steel cut oatmeal when I am not making regular oats. But I don’t really bother with instant oatmeal anymore. Oatmeal is easy enough to cook and making an apple topping is easy as well.

This apple stir-in can be prepared in advance, so you can make it the night before and just reheat in the morning if you are in a hurry. I know that is an important concern for many people in the rush of the morning hours.
