Cardamom Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

  • Author: Sara Haas


Add a little spice to your next bowl of oatmeal – and don’t forget the apples!


  • 2 small apples
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 12 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Peel, core and dice the apples. Discard the core, thinly slice the peel and reserve.
  2. Set a medium saucepan over medium heat and add butter. Once butter has melted, add the diced apples. Cook, stirring often, until lightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add the cardamom and cinnamon and cook one more minute. Add the water, increase the heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil. Stir in the oats and salt, reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often. Turn off the heat, add the vanilla extract and brown sugar.
  3. Portion into bowls and garnish with walnuts, thinly sliced apple peel and a dash of cinnamon.
