Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal

By Tuesday, May 07, 2013 , , ,


This is the perfect hot breakfast on a cold winter's morning. It reminds me of childhood trips to my Nanna's house for a Sunday Roast dinner, followed by a big slice of homemade apple and blackberry pie. I think the sharpness of fresh blackberries goes perfectly with apple pie oatmeal, but you can top it with whatever you like!


You will need:

45g or 1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 water
1 apple
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp ginger (fresh or ground)

Bring the water and milk to the boil on the stove in a small saucepan and then add your oats. Turn the heat down to the lowest and allow the oats to simmer for approximately 5 minutes. Meanwhile, dice your apple and add into your oats. Stir thoroughly and then add in vanilla extract, cinnamon and ginger. When your oats have thickened up to your desired consistency, which is after about 8 minutes, pour into a bowl and top it with your desired toppings, my favourites are blackberries and peanut butter.

  1. Hi Sioban,

    Found my way to your blog through Instagram, your breakfast creations are brilliant! I work for a creative consulting company and I'd actually love to interview you for a project we're working on. It's about healthy breakfasts, and specifically oatmeal which seems to be a major specialty of yours! If you are interested, please shoot me an email at dana.swartz@whatifinnovation.com and I can give you more details. Thanks and keep up the great work!

    1. You can replace it with soy milk, oat milk, rice milk or even dairy milk if you have to!

  5. After you put the oats into the boiling water and milk, do you need to stir it? Thanks. You're like my Goddes of oatmeal.

    1. Hi! You don't have to stir it, but I find it makes the oats cook better and get creamier :)

  7. Do you put the whole apple into the oats or just half and leave some for topping?

    1. That totally depends! I usually put it all in, but sometimes I leave a bit out

  8. Is the water and milk combined when they come to a boil or do you boil them one at a time?
