For the first time all winter, today actually feels like winter. Since it was gloomy and a super chilly low of 60 degrees, I was craving a warm bowl of oatmeal. This recipe is extremely thick, filling, and naturally sweet. Stay warm little snow bunnies!
Apple Pie Oatmeal
1 fuji or gala apple, chopped
1/2 cup whole rolled oats
1/2 cup milk of your choice
2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Chop apple and combine with rolled oats, milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a simmer/boil, then cover and bring down to low heat. Cover and stir occasionally and until the oats and apple become cooked and liquid is absorbed. Top with chopped walnuts and enjoy!
Toppings: Enjoy with 2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts, or if you’re feeling crazy, try 1 tablespoon of peanut or almond butter!

Thank you for the great recipes Catherine! Can’t wait to try a variation on your recipe tomorrow morning when it is -4 here in Cleveland.
FYI, I tried to get the info from the Natural Delights people but they rejected my email address because the pop up said it looked fake. Okay. I’ll live. lol

Hey! Just discovered your blog today through a Pinterest link and absolutely LOVE it. Your story of weight loss deeply resonated with me–I’m not on the other side yet, but beginning a journey to healthier living and I can’t wait to start incorporating your recipes into my daily life!

I’ve been following your blog for a little over a year now and as cheesy as it is, I must say that you are an inspiration to every girl and woman out there! You’ve really succeeded in changing your lifestyle and in a healthy way.
I’ve lost a handful of weight over the last few years through different methods and diet changes. Right now I’m yoyo-ing between the last 10-15 pounds, which is the most stubborn amount to get off. Any advice to help jump start getthing this last bit off and keep it off?

I made this oatmeal this morning and I thought it was too bitter so I added some brown sugar and it was delicious! Next time I’ll try adding real maple syrup instead of brown sugar and see how that’s tastes 🙂
