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, cinnamon
~ optional: chia seeds, flax seeds, etc.
In a small bowl, place a heaping 1/4 cup of quick oats.
Then add brown sugar and cinnamon as desired.
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.
I also like to add in some other things, like chia seeds.
We have tons of apples at the moment and had not thought to use them with oats, will be trying this out later
Apple crisp oatmeal sounds delightful. Great way to use up forgotten apples! I want to go pick some apples myself!!
I love how easy, healthy, and delicious this is. It’s like dessert for breakfast that’s good for you!
Yum! I am always at a loss as to what to do with so many apples so this is definitely something I need to make.
I have seen similar recipes all over and I am so tempted to give it a try.
Love a healthy and simple treat like this! Perfect for the season 😀
I love a good apple crisp and add in the oatmeal, that sounds amazing! I need to try this out.
That sounds delicious. I made something very similar with a peach today. It’s great there are so many options for oatmeal flavours.
Yummy! This looks so good and I happen to have all the ingredients!
Yum! I just love apple dishes. This one looks incredible. Perfect for the fall.
Sounds like a delicious way to use up apples. I will have to make it.
I’ve had so many apples from my grandfather’s apple tree that I haven’t known what to do with them. This recipe sounds perfect and a great alternative to the usual recipes I make with all the apples I get.
We end up with too many rotten apples. This sounds like a great option for using them before that happens. Sounds delicious.
Such a fall type of food! Yummy! I know I will have to try it. I really love apples!
I love love love oatmeal and have been having it for breakfast for years. I can’t wait to try the apple crisp oatmeal, the taste profile of the combo seems super delicious.
I love apple crisp but never thought of it as an oat meal! What a lovely way to eat more during autumn.
Apples and Oats, two very healthy ingredients and I always look for ways to create recipes to get my kids to eat this. Great idea
I need to make this! We went apple picking last weekend and I’ve been trying to come up with ways to use them.
I love everything apple, and apple desserts tell me that outside is autumn! Love them all!
What an amazing idea, this is a great way to use up the extra apples you have. Thanks for sharing this with us.
Apple crisp oatmeal is so good, and can very easily be turned into apple crisps/crumble if you change your mind! Yum!
Wow! This looks absolutely delicious! I would really love to try this! Thanks for sharing this with us!
It looks really so yummy. We have lot of apples too at home I will like to try this recipe.
I love any homemade item using fresh apples. My grandma had an apple tree in her yard. So we always had apple recipes. I’ll have to try this recipe though.
