OATMEAL, HOT AND COLD
Cold outside the window and we would like to eat something warm? Maybe we would like to find the taste of autumn on a plate or in a lunchbox?
I decided to make myself a bowl of this pleasant and tasty oatmeal with apples and cinnamon for work. Simple, filling and improving humor, and gives energy for the rest of the day.
It takes about 20 minutes to prepare it. The filling can be kept in the fridge or freezer for a long time, and will work well as an addition to yogurt or muesli.
Something else? You do not have to peel apples that have many vitamins in the skin, so just cut them down. You’ll probably love this recipe like me.
Enjoy the taste and aroma of autumn in your kitchen because it resembles a homemade apple pie so much.
For apple pie
2 large apples (such as reneta ,, etc.)
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of maple syrup (honey or just use 2 tablespoons of brown sugar)
1/4 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
pinch of ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon of juice from lemon
1/4 cup apple cider, juice or water
1 1/2 glasses of water
1/2 cup of whole milk (almond milk or just use all the water if you want without lactose)
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Wash apples, peel if you want and cut into cubes. Put on the pan for medium fire with butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon and cider or water.
Stir until the sugar dissolves and cook for about 5-10 minutes, until all the apples are soft and delicate, and the liquid thickens. If necessary, taste and add more cinnamon or nutmeg.
Connect water, milk, salt and oatmeal, bring to a boil. Decrease the temperature and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes or until the flakes become soft and thick. Mix with half the apple filling, as it will still be fully hot. Take off the heat and serve with additional filling on top.
* This part can be made earlier, the apple pie can be stored in an airtight container or a glass jar in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks.)
** Can be served hot or cold
