Apple Pie Oatmeal, Healthy and Super Yummy



Oatmeal is hearty, super healthy, fiber rich and just plain good…Whether instant, cooked on the stove or baked in the oven, the combination of flavors you can fit into a serving of oatmeal is endless!  Apple pie oatmeal is my favorite way to eat oatmeal these days! Each serving has 239 calories, 6 grams of fat, 8 grams of fiber and 6 Weight Watchers SmartPoints.  Here’s an oatmeal recipe the whole family will enjoy!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes


1 tablespoon reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light

1½ cups apples, peeled and chopped, such as Gala, Fuji, Honeycrisp

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 packages Truvia, Stevia, Splenda or your favorite sugar substitute, see shopping tips

3 tablespoons water

1 cup old fashioned rolled oatmeal, such as Quaker’s Old Fashioned Rolled Oats

1¾ cups water

⅓-½ cup fat-free milk, to taste

1 package Truvia, Stevia, Splenda or your favorite sugar substitute, see shopping tips

¼ teaspoon cinnamon


1. In a small nonstick pan, melt butter.  Stir in apples, cinnamon and sugar substitute. Add 3 tablespoons water and mix well.  Cook over medium-low heat, string often until apples are softened, about 10 minutes.

2. In the meantime, cook oatmeal according to package directions but no need to add salt.

3. When apples are ready, mix into cooked oatmeal.  Stir in milk, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon and 1 package sugar substitute.  Continue to cook on low heat until hot.

Makes 2 servings (each serving, 1⅓ cups)

Healthy Benefits

There is 25 years of clinical proof to show that the soluble fiber in rolled oats can help lower cholesterol, which has obvious benefits for the heart.

Research has linked cinnamon with helping to reduced blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels in people with type-2 diabetes.

Apples are loaded with fiber and contain both vitamins A and C.

Shopping Tip

Truvia (stevia) is my favorite sugar substitute. It’s all natural and comes from the stevia plant. You’ll find it in most supermarkets in the baking aisle where sugar and other sugar substitutes are displayed.

  3. Tracy Davenport Says:

    Have you ever tried making this the night before and reheating it for breakfast in the morning? I do not think with my schedule I would have time to peel, chop, and cook the apples. This recipe sounds delicious and I have already bought the ingredients! Thanks!

  4. admin Says:

    I haven’t but can’t imagine why it wouldn’t still taste great Tracy. You might need to add a little water or milk before heating it up. It will mostly thicken overnight. If you give it a try and I’d love to hear how it turns out!
    With best wishes,

    Thanks for the quick response Nancy! I tried it last night/this morning and it works great! I put it in a container in the fridge and then I heated for about 20 seconds. I then took it out and added just a little bit of milk, stirred it and then heated it for 2 minutes. It was delicious! A great way to start my day!
    Thanks for adding such a wonderful recipe!

    Great idea! I used honey and a little brown sugar for the sugar, didn’t peel the apples, and skipped the milk. All 9 kids (and myself) LOVED it. Thanks for sharing. The whole thing took me maybe 15 min from start to eating. And that was for a huge batch!

  10. admin Says:

    Great feedback Brandon…I’m so happy all 9 kids love it!
    All the best,
