Breakfast Treat

Oftentimes, I will post pics to my Facebook or Instagram account of desserts or delicious dishes that have proven to be a success. If it looks good, tastes scrumptious, and my man raves over it  – then it’s a SUCCESS!

Can I say "yum?!"

Can I say “yum?!”

When I post, many friends end up asking for the recipes! Well, here is a recipe that is tried and true. I came across this one Pinterest and thought I’d give it a try.

My man has an all-day work meeting at a location about 2 hrs from our home, so we are making a small road trip together. Since this preggo lady has to be up at about 5:30 AM, (GOODNESS GRACIOUS!) I just knew I would be famished in the morning and craving something good and delicious to eat on the road. So, I made this to be able to take on the run.

Here’s the recipe for you to check out if you’re looking for something super quick to make but is uber delicious! Bon Appetit!


  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 2 medium Honeycrisp or Pink Lady apples (or other firm, sweet-tart apples), peeled and chopped (to equal about 2½ – 3 cups)
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup dried cranberries or raisins
  • ½ chopped pecans
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  1. Bring the milk and water to a boil in a saucepan that’s large enough to prevent boil-overs. (While your milk and water heat up, gather your other ingredients and have them ready, because the rest of the cooking goes very quickly.)
  2. Once the liquids boil, reduce the heat to low. Add the oats and then stir in all other ingredients. Continue cooking for 1-2 minutes as you’re adding the ingredients, until oats are done and oatmeal is thickened to your liking. (If you’re not quick about adding the ingredients, you can turn the stove off as you add the final items so that your oatmeal doesn’t get too thick, or you can add just a little more milk to thin the consistency to your liking.)

Yields about 6 1/2 to 7 cups
