Apple Pie Oatmeal makes the perfect breakfast to warm you up on cool mornings. And if you love apple pie, then this apple pie oatmeal has your name all over it! Seriously.
Okay, so can y’all tell I’m in love with apples right now? It’s sort of hard not to be with the apples in their peak. We have a few apple trees on our property that have the best apples to dry and use for my Grandmother’s Fried Pies, but this year the deer beat me to the picking. There was not a single apple left on any of our trees.
I was thrilled when we first came to look at this property and I saw all of the pears, persimmon, blueberries, black walnuts, muscadines, scupernongs, and pecans, but nothing excited me as much as those apple trees. I remembered the Fall drives with my parents and grandparents up into the North Georgia mountains. With leaves of gold, red, and yellow fluttering onto the road as we drove along, we’d pull into the apple orchard to pick a few baskets of her favorite apple varieties. While she concentrated on the best apples for baking and drying, I was busily looking for the best, most juicy and flavorful apples for snacking.
And that brings me to this recipe for Apple Pie Oatmeal.
Apple Pie Oatmeal is the perfect combination of hearty oatmeal made with steel cut oats, a bit of apple pie spice, and my favorite apple for snacking – a fresh, juicy honeycrisp.
It’s such a simple recipe to make and definitely a treat to eat.
Here’s how I make it.
