Apple & Walnut Oatmeal

Fall arrived early this year... blew in over the weekend in full force! And the Lord blessed us with a great rain to boot! This morning we woke up to the thermometer hovering just above the freezing mark. A warm hearty breakfast just seemed in order. One of my favorites? Apples and Walnuts over oatmeal. 

Apple & Walnut Oatmeal

2 cups rolled organic oats
2 cups milk
2 cups water
pinch of sea salt
maple syrup
cinnamon (optional)

Heat milk, water, and salt in pan on stove until bubbles form around the edges. Pour in oatmeal, stir, and simmer until liquid is reduced to your liking (usually between 5-10 minutes). Meanwhile, chop walnuts and toast under broiler until golden brown, chop apples, and add about 1/2 T or less of butter to bowl and 1/2 - 1 T. maple syrup (adjust all to your preferences). 

Serve oatmeal over butter and syrup in bowls and top with apples and walnuts; sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. And enjoy!

For some FABULOUS organic walnuts, try Brit's @ Fillmore Farms. She's a Homestead Revival reader and their walnuts are the B.E.S.T.!!

Now, serve up a nice cold glass of fresh apple cider from the local orchards and you'll be feeling "fall-ish" inside and out!
