Doesn’t this sound fancy? Sauteed. It just means I cooked the apples in butter. But lets pretend that it means something fancier then that. [Cool? Cool.] We are a breakfast loving family over here, but momma is fan of easy homemade recipes. This sauteed apple and cranberry oatmeal is the best of both worlds. Delicious breakfast, easy recipe.
One medium apple
Start by sauteing your apples. I used maybe a tablespoon of butter and some cinnamon sugar. Cook for about 5 minutes or until your apples are soft.
See? It wasnt that fancy after all.
Add your water and bring it to a boil. Your water is going to look kinda gross but dont worry it gets better. So much better.
After the water boils add your cranberries. Stir in your quick oats and cook until tender. I like my oatmeal thick so I cook it about 3 minutes.
Its starting to look delicious now.
Spoon into bowls and cover with add cinnamon sugar.
And if you have a toddler, spoon some into their bowl too. And if your toddler is like mine watch them pick out the apples and cranberries while saying ‘Ewwww’. Yup. Thats my girl. That just means more for momma!
Ahh. Hello friend. So we meet again! This was such an easy homemade recipe and it even sounds fancy. Its perfect for the fall or anytime you have an abundance of apples. We always have dried cranberries on hand, they are one of my favorite things to cook with! It will be fun to experiment with other flavor combinations soon.
What do ya think.. worth trying? Im not going to lie, its kinda delicious. One of our new breakfast favorites!

Totally delicious & nutritious! I eat LOTS of oatmeal…and sometimes add apples and craisins, but never thought to sautee them first…I'm trying it for br'fast tomorrow. Thanks so much – how wonderful this recipe was featured at a blog party. I have many oatmeal 'dress up' recipes at my blog. =) MMMM!
You did not specify how much water to add, nor quantity of cranberries and oatmeal. Please provide this info. Thanks
I apologize, this is an older recipe and I forgot the exact amounts. I would just make your oatmeal as normal (so 1/2 cup of oatmeal to 1 cup water) and add half an apple and a handful of cranberries. Or more depending on your preference.
I dislike oatmeal but I have to tell you I am going to try this recipe tomorrow morning.
Thanks a lot!
Hope you enjoy Brenda!
