Still looking for ways to enjoy sweet, local apples? Friendly City is stocked full of this delicious fruit right now. I bought a big bag of crisp gala apples on my most recent trip to Friendly City and was inspired to make apple pie oatmeal. I love gala apples because of their sweet, mild flavor and their satisfying crunch. They are the perfect apples for making this apple pie oatmeal. This oatmeal is loaded with nutrients such as fiber and omega-3 fatty acids and makes for a scrumptious breakfast.
½ cup rolled oats
1 ½ cups water
1 Gala Apple, diced
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. brown sugar
½ tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. pecans
1. Add water and oats to a small pot and bring to a boil. Once it reaches a boil turn heat to low and add in diced apple, chia seeds, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Stir well to combine and cook for three minutes. Next, add in pecans and mix well. Transfer oatmeal to a bowl and enjoy!
