1⁄8 teaspoon
1 Tablespoon

1⁄8 teaspoon
nutmeg (optional)


  1. Rinse the apple, remove the core and cut into small chunks (about 1 ½ cups).
  2. Bring the water or milk to a boil in a saucepan.
  3. Add the oatmeal, salt and apple chunks. Cook over medium heat for 1 minute if using quick cooking oats or 7 to 10 minutes if using old fashioned rolled oats. Stir a couple times while cooking.
  4. Remove from heat. Stir in cinnamon, brown sugar and nutmeg, if desired.

  • To increase the apple flavor, use apple juice for all or part of the water. Mixing apple juice with milk may cause milk to curdle.
