Apple Pie Oatmeal

The Abundant Garden: Growing Quality Kids Through Gardening

Apple Pie Oatmeal: an activity for children of all ages. There’s nothing like waking up to the smell of fall in a pot. Believe me, if the kids are not up already, this will get them out of bed. This recipe is healthy and easy to make.

*Samantha from fivehearthome.com found a way of making apple pie oatmeal in the crock-pot that didn’t leave the oats burned and stuck to the edges. If you love using your crock-pot and waking up to a breakfast that is already made, check it out.
