Oatmeal is a healthy, fiber-rich, whole grain-based breakfast…as long as you choose the right mix-ins and toppings. I created a version that’s sweet and satisfying—it’s like having dessert for breakfast, one that’s really good for you. There’s no added sugar (not a drop), and it delivers fiber and antioxidants thanks to the cinnamon-y apples. Grab your spoon and get ready to swoon.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 2 servings
  • • 2 teaspoons whipped butter
  • • 1 apple (like Gala, Fuji, or Honeycrisp), finely chopped, skin on
  • • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • • 1¾ cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any preferred milk)
  • • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add the butter to a skillet and place over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add the chopped apple and cinnamon. Stir to combine and sauté until they are just cooked but still crisp, 2 to 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the oats and almond milk in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil then lower the heat to a simmer. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until the oatmeal reaches your desired consistency. Stir in the vanilla.

Split the oatmeal between 2 bowls and top each with half of the apple-cinnamon mixture.
