I love oatmeal in the morning. I usually cook my oatmeal with dried apples, dried cranberries, and cinnamon - and that's pretty much the perfect oatmeal, but I saw this recipe for Apple Pie Oatmeal on Pinterest, and it looked so good, I just had to try it. Reading the recipe now, I see that I did not actually follow the recipe. How could I miss the part about cooking the apple with nuts, butter, brown sugar and spices? I will have to try it again, I guess.
Next time I'm going to try cooking the apples, cranberries, and probably some walnuts with butter, brown sugar, and spices and then cooking the oatmeal with that - like the other recipe - and see if that makes a difference. If there's a huge difference, I'll be sure to update this recipe.
I'll also go back to using plain yogurt, because the vanilla was a bit too sweet to me. I love plain yogurt on my oatmeal.
