I like apples more crunchy, so I added them after the cereal was cooked.  The crunch was a nice contrast to the soft, smooth cereal texture, and oh so yummy!

LOVE this recipe! Have made it several times already, tastes great and so easy in the morning and quick. Tastes creamier when exactly following times in recipe. Did add chopped nuts, a bit of milk and a sliced banana as toppings. Will make again and again for our family!
