This Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal is full of flavor with apples, pecans and cinnamon, and will be the perfect breakfast for a weekday or the weekend. Then ask yourself - Do you or the kids wake up in the morning hungry and need something full of flavor and satisfying? Do you want to feel good sending them off to school knowing that their bellies are full and that they started their morning with something healthy?

Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Recipe

There's something really comforting about oatmeal. I think it's because it reminds me of growing up - sitting in the kitchen, eating breakfast at the table, and knowing that mom took the time to make it just for me. Yes, just for me because I'm an only child. I never had to share and oatmeal was one of those things I didn't want to share.

Mom made it with milk, too. Forget that oatmeal with water they serve at restaurants, mom made sure she was feeding me nutrients before she sent me out the door in the morning. She was even putting raw eggs into my coffee milkshakes behind my back because she wanted to up my protein. I was none the wiser, but well into my teen years she confessed. From that point on, I always had to ask if she'd added them because I didn't trust her. She probably told me no even if she had because she knew right well I wouldn't drink them. Mothers are smart women.
