Cranberry Apple Oatmeal

cheryl83

"I made this one morning in an effort to use up leftover cranberries from Thanksgiving. It's filling, healthy, and delicious! If you generally make oatmeal with milk instead of water, don't! The acid in the cranberries will make the milk separate. I tried it. It will still taste okay, but it won't look very pretty."

  1. Combine water, apple, and cranberries together in a bowl; bring to a boil. Cook mixture until cranberries burst and apple is tender, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and stir oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt into apple mixture. Cook, stirring continuously, until water is absorbed and oatmeal thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Top oatmeal with walnuts.

Very good. If you don't have a fresh orange, sub some of the water for orange juice. I cut way WAY back on the nutmeg (just a dash) and the sugar and nuts (too many calories).

Myself, 5yo, and 3yo all really liked this. We didn’t have fresh cranberries, but did have craisins, so we used a 1/4 of those, and almond milk instead of water, which was fine with the dried c...

My 3-year-old likes it too! I subbed orange juice for about 1/4th of the water (1/2 c) and just used a dash of nutmeg. I also drizzled a tiny bit of maple syrup over the bowl before serving! Fa...

Delicious and tasty. I would add apple sauce next time to add some more flavour and natural sweetness. Also great for cold mornings.
