Apple Pie Oatmeal is a great way to start your day in a heart-healthy way!
There’s really no excuse to start you day without a healthy breakfast when something like this lovely oatmeal is so easy to prepare. Oats are full of fiber and their cholesterol-lowering properties are so good for your heart. Make this tomorrow!
To begin, simply dice 2/3 of a cup of fresh apple. Combine the diced apple with a cup of rolled oats and 2 cups of water in a saucepan.
Sprinkle in 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon each of nutmeg and allspice. Stir them together and bring them to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until the oatmeal is soft and thickened. Remove it from the heat and let it rest for about 2 minutes.
Spoon the oatmeal into your bowl and drizzle in a little bit of local raw honey or a spoonful of brown sugar.

I made the apple oatmeal this morning very good. I do oatmeal almost every morning and adding apple and spices was tops. Also, I have made both of your cranberry sauce recipes and loved them. The one with the Honey and maple syrup was my favorite.
Oatmeal is a perfect breakfast for these cold morning. Using cinnamon makes it great. Adding apples makes it even better!
