Apple cinnamon oats

Perfect for a chilly Sunday night.

What you will need –

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1 apple – peeled and diced
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp date sugar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp brown sugar

First you want to melt the butter in a small sauce pan. Once it has melted add the apples, stir to coat. Next add the cinnamon, nutmeg, and date sugar. Stir to coat the apples, let the apples soften. I used a potato masher to mash them up a bit. This is an optional step, but for me it is a necessary step for the little people.

Next you want to get your water going. Bring the water to a boil, next add the oats and turn the heat to medium. Cook for about five minutes, or until the oats begin to thicken. Stirring occasionally. Once the oats have thicken but are still kind of loose, add the apple and stir to combine. Now is a good time to add the brown sugar and maple syrup. Stir stir stir.. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes before serving.

This was on the lower end of sweet for us. I try to keep things less sugary for my girls. Since both have ADHD I don’t like to over due it. ADHD is also the reason they don’t eat candy. They do get things like vegan cookies and cupcakes every once and a while. So if you like things more sweet just tweak this to your liking.

Also.. You can serve this with some granola on top or just plain.

Enjoy.
