I eat oatmeal almost everyday…but from a small packet that you mix with hot water. Don’t get me wrong, I love instant oatmeal, but real, homemade, do-it-yourself oatmeal is kind of a lot better.
For one, it makes your whole house smell like cinnamon goodness.
And two, it’s just plain delicious.
And hot from the oven.
And a little crunchy on top.
With a slight tartness from the cranberries.
And a sweetness from the apples.
Oh, I like it a lot.
My friend, Heather, and I made this particular oatmeal for our friends over the holiday weekend. Since there were absolutely no leftovers, I’m guessing my friends liked it too. I think I will add this oatmeal into my brunch rotation. Anyone want to come over for brunch this weekend? My giant dining table can fit a lot of peeps around it. Just kidding, don’t come over. But maybe one day. But not this weekend, I’m going to Ikea.
