This creamy Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal with Peanut Butter is made in the microwave in under five minutes and makes a hearty, filling breakfast for a busy morning.

A large cup of coffee, this creamy apple peanut butter oatmeal, and fifteen minutes of quiet alone time is pretty much heaven lately. But in real life, it's more like tossing this oatmeal in the microwave, scrambling to make coffee, and shoveling it into my mouth in the car. It's not pretty but this oatmeal tastes so good it makes me forget about the chaos around me for just a moment and relish in the peanut buttery goodness. Because let's be honest, everything tastes better with peanut butter.

Instructions

  1. Spray a bowl with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Chop the apple and add to the bowl. Microwave for 1-2 minutes until just tender.
  2. Add the oatmeal, almond milk, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Return to the microwave for 2-2:30 minutes until oatmeal is tender and milk is absorbed. Top with peanut butter. Usually I melt it for 10 seconds first so that I can drizzle it over the top.

Allergic to almonds so what other kind of milk could be used?

Any milk will work for the recipe - dairy or non-dairy. Thanks!

As I’m eating this steaming bowl of deliciousness, I am thinking “Where has this been all my life?” I used to hate oatmeal. And it IS even better with coffee ☕️

I really enjoy this breakfast recipe! I used sweetened almond milk to up the sweetness a touch and I cooked it a bit longer in the microwave to make sure it thickened. Definitely a repeat!
