Who said you cannot have pie for breakfast? Apple Pie Oatmeal is a healthier way to enjoy the flavor of apple pie without any guilt.
I grew up eating leftover fruit pies for breakfast. My mother didn’t seem to have any trouble with it, seeings her pies were stuffed with fruit. Compared to, say, a donut or a cinnamon pop-tart, I’d say there is a lot more nutrition in a piece of homemade pie. However, after I got married, my husband gave me nothing but grief about serving pie for breakfast. After decades of jeering from the peanut gallery, I have stopped cut way back in the pie-for-breakfast area and looked for alternatives. I think this Apple Pie Oatmeal is one perfect solution.
I used gluten-free oatmeal in this recipe, but you can use regular or quick oatmeal of any kind. Chex started making gluten-free oatmeal and it was cheaper than any of the other, more established brands, so I bought a bunch. Then, sadly, I guess it didn’t sell well, so they discontinued it. I found it marked down on clearance in a couple of local groceries and then *Poof* it was gone. I hate it when good products come and go like that.
