I have been eyeballing this growing oatmeal recipe for a while - probably because it has "apple pie" in the title, which means it will probably taste more like a dessert than breakfast.  As a matter of fact, I made this oatmeal for dessert last night! 

The best part about making this oatmeal bowl was that after it had been cooking for a while, the house actually started to smell like I was making apple pie.  Mmmm!  The oatmeal tasted great, too.  It didn't quite taste like apple pie, but it did remind me of apple cinnamon instant oatmeal.  You know, the kind that comes in a packet that you add hot water to?  This reminded me of that, but tasted much better and fresher.  Probably because it uses fresh apples instead of dehydrated bits. 

The other thing that was great about this recipe, which goes for all of the growing oatmeal bowls, is the portion size.  Compared to the small instant oatmeal packets, this bowl is at least twice the size, and for only six points.  Not a bad deal at all!
