Apple Cinnamon Pecan Oatmeal

I eat oatmeal about 5 days a week.  It's healthy and super filling.  I have a couple different ways of making oatmeal so it never gets boring. 

I use about 1/2 apple in my oatmeal. Fuji apple is my favorite but you can use whatever kind you like. 

I just use a small bit of pecans. Just enough to get a bit of crunch. I love pecans but you can use walnuts too.  

I love almond milk.  It is tasty and creamy and tastes fantastic in oatmeal.  

Just a touch of sweetness.  

I like a lot of cinnamon in my oatmeal. Use whatever amount is good for you.  I cook it for about 5 minutes. I use a really big bowl as it likes to puff up and boil over. Makes for a messy microwave. 

This is a big bowl of oatmeal.  Super filling and stays with you for a long, long time.  

Apple Cinnamon Pecan Oatmeal Recipe

  1. Oatmeal just spikes my sugar so much - that looks delicious though - my favorite apple is Fuji too - makes the best apple pies!
