Few things are as American as apple pie. Except maybe…. oatmeal.
As clean eaters, we’ve all seen our share of oatmeal in the mornings. Heck, we’ve probably seen our share at other times during the day as well. I mean, let’s face it. It’s a quick and healthy dish that travels well. You can’t beat it. Sweet or savory, oatmeal is awesome stuff.
So I thought I would try to combine two of this great country’s meal time traditions. What I got was a really wonderful, comforting bowl of delicious oats.
Honest to goodness, I thought I was eating apple pie for breakfast! It had the perfect amount of sweet and spice and made my tummy very happy. Comfort food at it’s best!
