Apple Pie Oatmeal

Apple Pie Oatmeal


How many memories do you have involving apple pie?  It’s about as American as you can get, especially in the fall.  Last fall I took my girls to pick apples at an apple orchard in north Georgia.  The trees were all in perfect rows overlooking the Georgia mountains and we had perfect fall weather.  I’m already looking forward to a trip up there this year!

Here are a couple photos from our day on the apple orchards last year, courtesy of my good friend and photographer Karen Nickel.

There was the greatest antique ladder at the apple orchard.  It was perfect for a photo prop, and for the girls to climb on to reach the apples.

Hard to believe almost a full year has passed since this day!

We start at least three days a week with oatmeal so I’m always trying new recipes.  I love the convenience overnight oats, but sometimes you want something hot off the stovetop to start off your day.  This one hit the spot.

What was the name of the orchard you visited? We are south of Atlanta and tried to find one last year but we were too late.

Hi Danielle – I went to was Hillcrest Ochards for a festival, and the kids had a blast, but they use lots of pesticides on their apples. We ended up visiting several places since they are all close….they are also close to Burt’s Pumpkin Farm, and Amicalola Falls!! This year I’m planning on going to Ellijay Apple Festival. I’ve heard great things about it. Here’s a link to some of the local farms!

Yummy I can’t wait to try this! It makes me yearn for the cool days of Fall to get here really quick!

Could this be done as an overnight oatmeal? Thanks!

It would not be the same since the apples cook down on the stovetop. If you try it, make sure to add some chia seeds or ground flax to helps absorb some of the liquid.

I cannot wait to try this! Where can I find unsweetened non-dairy milk?

I can find Unsweetened Almond Milk at almost any grocery store. There are many other types of non-dairy milk — flax, hemp, oat, coconut, and soy. Hope you enjoy!!

I was wondering what the calorie, fat, carb, protein content is?

I enjoyed making this today. It was really easy to prepare and made the house smell wonderful! I enjoyed the simple flavors. It does not taste like the sugar filled oatmeal packs that I grew up with. It is much better to be eating something that I know is good for my body and very delicious! Thanks for the recipe!
