The Bored Girl's Kitchen

{April 15, 2012}   Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Verdict: Teh noms

Breakfast isn’t something I normally do, but I do enjoy breakfast foods.  So I compromised and decided to make this in the afternoon after I realized that oh shit, I had a cup of hot cocoa while grocery shopping and some bits and pieces of the stuff I had stuffed in the crock pot, but nothing else.  I had remembered to pick up apples at the store, and decided to give this recipe that I found on Urban Nerd Runner a shot. He wasn’t kidding when he said it was easy!

What you’ll need:
– 1 apple.  Don’t use the whole thing if you don’t like super apple-y oatmeal.

– Oatmeal

– 1 tablespoon cinnamon

– 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Step 1: Slice up that apple.  You’ll want bite size chunks, so whatever is bite sized for you is what I’d go with.

Step 2: If you’re preparing your oatmeal on the stove go ahead and start your water over some heat to get it boiling.  If not, just go ahead and toss your apple chunks into a pan to start sauteing them.  Well, I’m honestly not 100% sure how to properly saute something, so we’re just gonna heat them up real nice in the pan.  I let mine go until they were starting to brown up from the heat and had smelled the whole kitchen up deliciously.

Step 3: Prepare your oatmeal.  I microwaved mine and guesstimated at how much to put in for everything. It seemed to work alright.

Step 4: While the oatmeal is preparing and your apple chunks have been cooked to your liking, add your brown sugar and your cinnamon.  I just did mine to taste, and it was teh noms. Stir it all together and get ready to add it to your oatmeal.

Step 5: Mix them together, and enjoy! Garnish the top with some extra cinnamon and brown sugar if you’re so inclined.  It’s tasty either way.

Yes, that’s my Ramen bowl.

This is probably the perfect “I need something solid and quick but don’t feel like doing much work and don’t want something boring” breakfast meal there is.  At least that I’ve come across so far.  It’s tasty-riffic, relatively quick, and super easy.
