Day 2 Apple Pie Oatmeal



  • 1 cup oatmeal (I prefer steel cut)
  • 1 apple diced
  • 1 peach diced
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp homemade caramel *
  • vanilla extract
  • 1 handful almonds (or as much as you want, it’s a garnish after all)
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

* I’m starting to realize that since I make homemade almost everything, a lot of these recipes will be recipes within recipes. In this case, until I can make a post about it, here’s an amazing recipe for Homemade caramel. It’s so bad for you but it tastes so good so that’s why we use it sparingly in this recipe. 


  • Follow directions on your oatmeal container to get the best results, but don’t forget to salt the water before putting the oatmeal in. The salt only acts as a compliment to the sweet flavours we’ll be adding later For example, I use whole grain steel cut oats which take a little longer to cook because the grain is a little coarser so it takes about 30 minutes of simmering to get my oats to the consistency I like.
  • In a separate sauce pan mix 1/2 cup milk, the diced apple bits, vanilla extract, and spices. Set heat on medium-high and let boil. Put a lid on the saucepan to cook down apples for 3-5 minutes. It all depends on how soft or chewy you want your apples.
  • Turn heat off saucepan and stir in peaches.
  • Crush almonds by placing them in a zip lock baggy and finding the heaviest object to smash the bag with. Voila! Instant crushed almonds and stressor reliever all-in-one.
  • Take oatmeal off heat and plate it.
  • Spoon apple peach mixture on top.
  • Garnish with a sprinkling (or a heaping handful in my case. I love almonds too much!) of almonds.
  • And enjoy!

Enjoy! And let me know how this recipe goes for you if you try it out.

Peace : )
