What You’ll Need
- 1 small apple
- 1½ cups milk
- ¾ cup oats
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1. Peel the apple and chop it into small pieces.
2. Boil the apple pieces with the milk and a dash of salt. For older kids who are fine with crunchier apple pieces, add the apple later (with the oats) to create more texture.
3. After the milk comes to a boil, add the oats along with the sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
4. Cook the mixture for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Then serve, topping with an extra sprinkling of cinnamon and apple bits, if your child likes.
