Cranberry Apple Oatmeal

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.

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  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.
