Apple Pie Oatmeal

Apple Pie Oatmeal ….I’m telling the truth.

I’m kinda in love with it.

I quite the pre-packaged oatmeal years ago. You know how much sugar are in those?? Me, either, but I bet it’s a lot.

Maybe I am a control freak and oatmeal isn’t rocket science, but I prefer to make my own.

Overly sweet oatmeal grosses me out, so I like to flavor it with spices, extracts and toppings…

Enter Apple Pie Oatmeal.

The oatmeal itself isn’t very sweet, but you could certainly throw some more sugar in there if you would like to…it’s all about preferance.

And the perfectly placed apples on top, those were just for making pretty pictures…just mix those right into the oatmeal for eating so you get a yummy apple in every bite.

For another scrumptious apple recipe, check out my Pear and Apple Pork Chops…yum!

Of course I used my most favorite oatmeal in the world..Coach’s Oats (this is not a sponsored post, I just LOVE their oatmeal)
