Nutty Apple Oatmeal

I’ve always had a hard time eating plain oatmeal, so I’ve had to find ways to add texture and substance to this hearty breakfast. I’m a big fan of anything apples, so combine just a bit of cinnamon, a touch of sweetness, some crunchy almonds, and this delicious twist provides a wholesome and flavorful meal to please everyone in the family!
