If I could promise a delicious, healthy and satisfying breakfast that is ready in 90 seconds, would you give me a kiss? What if I told you it didn’t require a single pot, pan, knife, or cutting board? Well then…get over here and give me a smooch!

Apple Cinnamon Pumpkin Oatmeal is full of creamy, Vitamin A-packed pumpkin and plenty of tart, Vitamin C-rich apple. (We are fighting off colds left and right in my house this week so we need all the Vitamin C we can get!)

By using a hand held grater, such as the coarse grater from Edgeware, there is no need to dirty a knife and the apples cook in much less time than if they were chopped. My favorite part? The skin stays on which is full of fiber and nutrients (not to mention gorgeous color.)

Just pop the entire bowl in the microwave and after a couple minutes of relaxing with a cup of coffee, you will be rewarded with a steamy bowl of heart-healthy oatmeal.

Your spoon is waiting.

    This recipe looks delicious! By old fashioned oats, do you mean rolled oats or oats specifically for oatmeal?

      Oh yes I mean old fashioned rolled oats! :)

        Quaker Oats doesn’t taste good like years ago … the taste has changed. Could it be because of GMO? Even the restaurant’s taste better of course. My husband won’t eat it only I will, even at that. I love a healthy oatmeal breakfast. Help anyone? Thanks JM

          Have you tried Bob’s Red Mill oats? They’re GMO free and I love the texture. http://amzn.to/2ojLe7A

    Yum!!! This is the second oatmeal I have seen with grated apple, and I can totally see why it would be better! So much more of the flavor would come out! This sounds perfect for a chilly morning! Will be a perfect pre tempo breakfast! :) I have a 6 mile hard tempo today with 6 miles easy…..I need a big batch of oatmeal like this to fuel me up :)

      Yes I started doing that when my toddler was still getting all of his teeth! It’s great for shredded into yogurt, muffins, anything!!

    Great idea! I made this today and thought the ideals was great. When I made it, we found the spice amounts to be much too strong for our liking. We ended up making more oats to temper the recipe a bit. Turned out amazing! Thanks for sharing.

    What kind of oats did you use? Can you use GF steel cut oats?

    1. Liz DellaCroce Avatar
      Liz DellaCroce

      Typically I use old fashioned oats for this. Steel cuts would definitely work but you would want to double the amount of liquid and cook longer. When I make steel cut oats I usually add the apples about 5 minutes prior to the end of the cooking time then stir in pumpkin before serving. Hope that helps!!
