  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup apple puree
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey for non-vegan option
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter or any other nut butter


  • 1-2 apples of choice sliced
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped pecans
  • Extra peanut butter to drizzle (optional)


  • Add the water to a small pot. Stir in the cinnamon and a pinch of salt and bring to boil over high heat.
  • Once it starts to boil, add the oats and reduce the heat to a medium. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the apple puree, peanut butter and maple syrup and cook for 1-2 minutes more.
  • Turn the heat off, cover the pot and allow the oatmeal to sit for 5-10 minutes. Add oatmeal to bowls and top as desired.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!



  • Make sure to bring the water to a boil before you add the oats, this keeps the oats from absorbing too much water.
  • Be sure to let the oatmeal rest for at least 5 mins before serving.
  • Play around with texture by adding your favorite nuts or seeds – this oatmeal bowl is super versatile!
  • If you don’t want to use peanut butter, you can swap it for almond butter or cashew butter.
  • Use honey, coconut sugar, or agave if you don't have maple syrup.
