Recipe~ Soaked Oatmeal

I honestly have to admit that I don't particularly like to pose and have my pictures taken... So we won't be doing a fashion post today (because of the lack of pictures). How about a recipe instead? 

Here's a yummy and easy breakfast recipe that doesn't involve much prepping, and is great if you want a quick, healthy breakfast. It only takes about 10 minutes to cook!

What You Need:
2 cups oats
4 cups water
3 apples, peeled and chopped
3 tsp cinnamon, separated
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp powdered ginger 
 What To Do:
1. The night before, pour 2 cups of oats in a large bowl and cover with water. Cover bowl with a towel and let sit over night. In the morning, drain and rinse your soaked oats.
2. Bring the 4 cups of water to a boil and add in the oats.
3. Bring oats down to a simmer, and let cook for about 7 minutes, or until they become the consistency you prefer. Mix in 2 tsp cinnamon.
4. While your oats are cooking, put your chopped apples in a small pan with a chunk of butter, remaining cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. 
5. Put a lid over the apples and let them simmer for a few minutes, until they are soft and bubbly.
6. To serve, top the oatmeal with a chunk of butter, a scoop of apples, and a drizzle of honey.

Can you see all that melted butter and honey? Yum!
I love oatmeal, do you? Mom has a hard time getting it down, so I try to spice it up for her!

I hope you enjoy this recipe. I would love to know if you tried it, or what kind of variation you did! 

Have a good night!

  1. I'm with ya Mama W! I have a hard time getting it down too! But I am sure Rebekah will make it and I will try it! :) Thank-you!

  2. I've been having my oatmeal with apple and cinnamon in it. I love it and sometimes I put a little Greek yogurt in it to give the oatmeal a bit more protein. I also like apple and peanut butter in my oatmeal!
