  • 4 cups water
  • 3 cups diced apple (about 2 small apples)
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or more to taste
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2-4 tablespoons sunflower seeds

Apple-Raisin Oatmeal

Alan Roettinger | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 4 people

$1.08 per serving / Adding oatmeal after the water is boiling helps prevent a gluey texture. This method is also very quick, despite using whole rolled oats. Cinnamon is much more than a delectable flavor; it’s also one of the oldest healing and health-promoting spices. If you like, add pumpkin-pie spice, vanilla, or a sweetener of your choice. Refrigerate any leftovers and reheat with a little milk or water for a quick breakfast. 

  1. Combine all ingredients except oats and seeds in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Add oats all at once and stir. When mixture returns to a boil, decrease heat to low and cover. Cook for 5 minutes and pour into a bowl. Add the sunflower seeds and serve.
