  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/3 cups whole rolled oats organic optional
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup applesauce unsweetened
  • 1 medium Gala apple chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup walnuts chopped


Combine water and salt in medium stove top pan over high heat.  Once water is boiling, lower heat and add in oats. Simmer, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes.

    After 5 minutes, whisk in vanilla extract, unsweetened applesauce, 2/3rds of the chopped apples, ground cinnamon, and maple syrup.

      Continue to cook 5 minutes until a majority of the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes. When ready to eat, pour into a bowl.

        Top with chopped walnuts and the remaining 1/3rd of the apple, or other desired garnish. Save leftovers in airtight containers for up to 5 days in the refrigerator or freeze for up to 3 months.
