This Apple Cider Oatmeal is a wholesome breakfast recipe that’s easy to make and perfect for chilly mornings.
On chilly fall mornings there is nothing like waking up to a big, warm bowl of oatmeal. I grew up eating oatmeal for breakfast. It was usually the instant type but I loved it.
As I got older and learned to cook, I started making my own oatmeal. Dont’ get me wrong…I still love those packets of the instant stuff (hello, raisins and spice!) but the homemade version is so much better.
One of the perks of making your own oatmeal is you can control what goes in. For the recipe, I used my standard oatmeal recipe and amped it up with fresh apple cider from our local cider mill.
I also stirred in some chopped cinnamon apples for texture. Sometimes, I’ll even add chopped pecans. I love how flexible this recipe is.
The result is a creamy oatmeal laced with warm apples and the sweet, fresh apple cider flavor. It’s one of my favorite things to wake up to.
