Whip up a batch of these steel cut oats into the most delicious Apple Pie Oatmeal in about 15 minutes!
I adore pie. It’s just so darn good and sweet. However, over the last year, I’ve been trying to cut down on the number of desserts we have in the house so I’ve been on a quest to turn some of my favorite desserts and sweet treats into something a tad healthier. Yep, that means I’ve been transforming desserts into healthier oatmeal versions for breakfast. It gives me that hint of sweet and all those flavors I love, but with a healthier twist.
I love keeping a big bowl of apples in my favorite KitchenAid refrigerator that are washed and ready for eating. I find the kids eat a ton more this way when they are just ready and waiting! Side note: I bought this fridge from my friend about 6 years ago when she was changing to all black appliances…to this day…she still comes over and tells the fridge how much she misses it. I have to say, I totally agree with her…it’s been the best fridge I’ve ever had.
Just a little sweetness from some maple syrup and little sprinkle of brown sugar is all this oatmeal needs. I seriously can’t believe that this takes me only about 15 minutes in the morning and it cooks while I’m getting the kids lunches made.
Who says it’s not okay to have dessert for breakfast?!?!?
