I made up a little fall oatmeal breakfast today!!! The simple joy of being a homemaker is that you can be as creative as you wish to be. This breakfast makes me feel the essence of fall which is my favorite time of year!
I call it Caramel Apple Oatmeal
(I made a bigger batch so I can warm a partion up each mid morning)
2 cups rolled oats
4 cups milk or water
1/2 cup of pure maple syrup
1 Apple peeled and chopped
3 dates pitted and chopped
1 tsp cinnamon
4 Tbs butter
1/3 cup chopped pecans
Pinch of salt
A tsp of natural caramel flavoring (THM one is what I used)
Combine all ingredients. Simmer until soft and fluffy, cover with a splash of cream.
