“Apple Crisp” Oatmeal


Apple Crisp Oatmeal

I picked a lot of apples this fall – several bags!  I promised myself that I would keep the apples carefully refrigerated, but around Thanksgiving time we ran out of fridge space and the apples ended up forgotten – and starting to overripen.  There is nothing better than a crisp apple, so I started cooking the apples instead.  This is a great way to use up apples that are starting to become too ripe.


~ 1 apple

~ 1/4+ cup quick oats

~ brown sugar

~ optional: chia seeds, flax seeds, etc.

Apple Crisp Oatmeal Ingredients


In a small bowl, place a heaping 1/4 cup of quick oats.  Then add brown sugar as desired (I use under a tablespoon).

Peel and cube your apples.  I peel mine because the skins are wrinkly, but if you prefer, you can keep the skins on.

Add water according to the quick oats directions (for my 1/4 cup quick oats, I used just over 1/2 cup water).

Microwave according to the quick oats directions.
