Apple-Steeped Raisin Oatmeal

 

There’s no denying that autumn foods smell incredible and are associated with warmth and comfort. In honor of that, and to give my kids a wholesome, filling start to the day, I dreamed up and whipped up this fun, simple oatmeal.

Apple-Steeped Raisin Oatmeal

(makes 4 servings)

 

  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • cinnamon/sugar, for garnish

 

1. Pour oats, raisins, and apple juice in small sauce pan and put in the fridge to steep overnight. (You can skip this step, but it really helps plump the raisins and infuse the oats with flavor!)

 

2. Place sauce pan on burner and heat over med/med-high heat until you reach a slow boil (big bubbles appear now and again.) Reduce heat to med-low and simmer for about five minutes.

 

3. Scoop into bowls and garnish with cinnamon/sugar.

 

 

This oatmeal is plenty sweet just from the apple juice, so you could also garnish with just cinnamon. I used about a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon/sugar blend on each bowl.

 

The steeping/cooking in juice method can be switched up to include your favorite flavors in a variety of fun ways. My oatmeal ebook (still free to subscribers!) includes a recipe for creamsicle oatmeal that uses a similar technique.

 

Let me know if you try it! This one smells absolutely delicious simmering on the stovetop.
