Apple Pie Oatmeal

Originally posted December 7, 2018. Updated October 11, 2019.

I eat oatmeal for breakfast everyday. It’s an easy, filling, and healthy way to start the day. It’s almost always the same: cherries, soymilk, walnuts, and chia seeds. Sometimes blueberries instead of cherries, or pumpkin seeds instead of walnuts, but otherwise pretty typical.

Well, one morning we were out of milk! 😱 So I guess you could say this was borne out of necessity, but it’s so delicious, I’ve made it several times since. Make sure you get a taste of this before apple season is done.

How to Make Apple Pie Oatmeal

Making apple pie oatmeal is not unlike making any other oatmeal. Simmer all the ingredients in a small pot until the oatmeal is done. I recommend using a firm apple that will stand up to the heat, like honeycrisp. I prefer more texture in my oatmeal.

To make this nut free, simply use a seed of your choice, like pumpkin or sunflower. Alternatively, just leave it out.

How to Make Apple Pie Oatmeal in the Microwave

If you’re like me, you don’t want to stand over a pot making sure it doesn’t boil over or burn your oatmeal. You want to set it, and forget it! I love making my oatmeal in the microwave for this reason. To make this recipe in the microwave, simply put all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave on high for about 2 1/2 – 3 minutes.

How to Make Overnight Apple Pie Oatmeal

What takes even less effort than microwaving? Overnight oats! If you like your oatmeal chilled, and grab-and-go in the morning, this one’s for you! Put all the ingredients in a glass jar or bowl before you go to bed, and refrigerate. Ready to eat in the morning!
