And that gets old, you know? I needed something easy to fix on Tuesday, since I’d spent the day unpacking and doing dishes and laundry (much of it with an extra child or two, because hey, I was home anyway!), and at the last minute I opted for this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal. I really enjoyed it, too–it tasted like fall, in a healthier way than an apple crisp does. (Not that I don’t love apple crisps, because I SO do, but I can’t bring myself to serve one for dinner.) Of course, it kind of wanted something sweet and cold and creamy with it–if I’d had whipped cream I would have used it–but a glass of milk alongside (plus maybe a drizzle of maple syrup on top) would do it. I used craisins instead of raisins (because they taste better!), but other than that I followed the recipe and it came out beautifully. If you’re looking for a good breakfast (or breakfast for dinner!) that’s full of fiber and feels like fall, try this one.*
*Why yes, that IS some beautiful alliteration. Thank you!
