To cooked oatmeal, I stirred in two tablespoonfuls of applesauce. Then, I caramelized apple cubes in honey, with a generous sprinkle of cinnamon, until the apple cubes were bronzed and soft, and added them to the oatmeal.

  • 1 cup cooked oatmeal (adding a pinch of salt during or even after cooking adds depth to the sweetness of the rest of the ingredients)
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce homemade or store bought
  • honey to taste
  • 1 cooking apple I used Granny Smith, peeled and cut into half-inch cubes
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 generous sprinkle cinnamon


  • To cut the cooking time, cook the apples while the oatmeal is simmering in another pan.
  • Place the apple cubes in a shallow pan. Pour in the honey and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until the apples are caramelized and softened.
  • Pour the cooked oatmeal in a bowl. Stir in the applesauce and honey.
  • Spoon the caramelized apple cubes over the porridge including whatever syrup is in the pan.
  • Serve while hot.
