  • Oatmeal
  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • cinnamon


  1. Prepare your oatmeal. While you’re waiting for it on the stovetop or in the microwave, start preparing your apple by dicing it. You don’t need to peel it, but you can if you want to. 
  2. Melt butter into a medium size pan and add apple. Stir to coat with butter.
  3. Add maple syrup, pouring it evenly over the apple pieces. Stir.
  4. After 8 minutes of cooking, sprinkle cinnamon on top of your apples. Cook another 2 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes of total cooking time, scoop your apple pieces on top of your oatmeal.
  6. Enjoy!


I used a Cosmic Crisp Apple, but you can use your favorite apple. The 10 minutes of cooking should leave your apple still a bit firm and crisp, not mushy and soft. If you want it softer, you may opt to cook it a few minutes longer.
