  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons golden raisins

Caramelized Apples

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 medium tart apples such as Cortland or Granny Smith thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • pinch of salt


  • In a saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add oats, stirring to coat, and turn heat to medium high. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until you smell toasty notes. Pour in water and salt. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer.
  • Cook for 10 minutes, until oats are softened and have absorbed water. Remove from heat, and let sit for 3 minutes. Then stir and add in 2 tablespoons milk.  
  • To make apples, melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add apples and coconut sugar, and salt, stirring to coat. Let cook for 15 minutes, stirring as you go, until apples are softened and juicy.
