Cooking with Kelly: Apple Oats Recipe

Oatmeal is a staple in my house. You can buy a huge tub for less than $2 that will make tons and tons of breakfasts. However, oatmeal every day can get repetitive, if you don't get creative. This apple pie oatmeal recipe came about from my borderline obsessive desire to not waste food. And when apples come in a 10-pound bag from Costco, I need to get creative. These oats are filling and delicious, so give it a try.

Apple Oats Recipe
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup water
1 apple
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Splenda
a pinch of salt
1 ounce walnuts, chopped
1/2 Tablespoon brown sugar

The night before, place the oats and water in a bowl to soak overnight. I like the texture this adds, but it's your call. In the morning, chop the apple, top with Splenda, salt and cinnamon, the microwave for one minute. Mix into the oats, then microwave for another 20 seconds. Top with the brown sugar and walnuts
