Apples, cinnamon and nutmeg make this oatmeal a perfect start to Thanksgiving Day.

One of my favorite parts of visiting family for the holidays is making something fun for breakfast. We work so hard on planning the fancy dinner, but a good start to the day is needed to get through all that cooking (or football, whatever suits your fancy).

I work at Bob’s which means everyone thinks that I’m the breakfast expert (and, really, we ARE the World Porridge Champions). Usually, I just hand my husband a bag of our High Fiber Pancake Mix and say “go” and he whips up the batter, flipping pancakes until everyone is full.

This recipe from our new cookbook might make a great alternative this year… wonder if he’d feel left out?

Apple Pie Oatmeal

Contributed by Jolleen Washburn


* 1 Apple, cored and sliced
* 1 Tbsp Butter
* 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
* 1 tsp Cinnamon
* 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
* 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
* 1-1/2 cups Regular Rolled Oats (GF will work fine too!)
* 1-1/2 cups Water
* 1-1/2 cups Apple Juice


Combine the butter and sugar in a heavy saucepan over medium heat and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until melted and blended. Add the apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and cook for about 4 minutes, stirring, until the apples release their juices. Add the oats and cook for about 2 more minutes, until the juices are absorbed, stirring to prevent sticking. Add the apple juice and water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, until the oatmeal is thick and the apples are soft.

Let the cooked oatmeal rest, covered for 2 minutes. Serve hot with any combination of toasted nuts, fresh fruit, cream, extra cinnamon or brown sugar.

If that doesn’t suit your fancy, maybe one of these suggestions will:

We love this oatmeal!! It’s just the thing on a foggy, chilly morning in the fall. I just received a case of Cox Pippin apples and the first thing I’ve made with them is this recipe! Thanks so much for sharing!
