Sharon's Apple-Cinnamon-Muffin Oatmeal

By teddybearcub1960

  • I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! spray

  • 3 Granny Smith or other baking apples, coarsely chopped

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups water

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats

  • 2 to 3 packets (.035 ounce each) sugar substitute (such as Splenda)

  • 3 tablespoons chopped raw almonds or walnuts (optional)

  1. Lightly coat a medium nonstick frying with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! spray. Place it over medium heat. Add the apples, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and 5 spritzes of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! spray. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes, or until the apples are soft.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring the water and salt to a full boil. Add the oats. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 minutes, or until the water is almost absorbed. Remove from the heat and cover.

  3. When the apples are cooked, stir the apple mixture into the oatmeal. Stir in 2 packets of sugar substitute and the nuts, if desired. Taste and add 1 more packet of sugar substitute, if desired. Spoon into 3 serving bowls. Serve immediately.

  4. Makes 3 (generous 1 1/3-cup) servings

I made this dish for breakfast this morning and it was wonderful. Will make it again in the future.

I like oatmeal and I never thought about adding apples and cinnamon to my oatmeal. Can't wait to try it.
