Applesauce Oatmeal Recipe

As fall continues and the leaves change a beautiful yellow, red, and orange, apple picking season comes closer to an end. With buckets of apples, the challenge is finding things to make before they all rot. Here is a recipe that one of our visitors submitted to me a few weeks ago.

This recipe is very easy to prepare and the ingredients are simple: water, oatmeal, applesauce, raisins or Craisins and a bit of cinnamon. Add a tablespoon of brown sugar if if you want it sweeter.

Serving Size: 2


  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of unsalted Quick Quaker oats
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins or cranberry raisins
  • 1/2 cup unsalted or homemade applesauce with sugar or Splenda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Over high heat, boil 2 cups of water in a small or medium sized saucepan.  Before reaching boil add in raisins and applesauce.  (cranberries can be substituted for raisins)
  2. When water boils, add oatmeal.  (Quaker Oats is a good product for this cholesterol lowering breakfast), and cinnamon (add to taste)
  3. Reduce heat to medium and stir for one minute.
  4. Remove from heat and cover.
  5. Let it cool for approximately 3 to 5 minutes.  Serve hot.

You can add a flavorful bite to your oatmeal by using a 1/2 cup of orange juice in place of 1/2 cup of the water.
