Cathy's Apple Cinnamon Hunger Fighting Oatmeal

It's hard to get the kids out of the carb rut for breakfast. This is a filling, protein & fiber rich oatmeal that keeps them full until lunch. Leftovers are even great cold, or make up a big pot the night before and place in individual bowls for a quick breakfast in the morning! I created this myself and have made numerous variations of it, and this is the one my kids ask for over and over! For the sake of good health, it's not a real sweet oatmeal. If you or your kids require a sweeter taste, add more maple syrup or top with brown sugar at the table. You could top each serving with sliced almonds instead of stirring in the chopped walnuts. In fact, I prefer it that way, but I have one daughter who won't eat the protein rich nuts unless they're hidden!I recently made this for guests with only one medium apple (that's all we had in the house), and this fed two children and 3 adults a good hearty breakfast. The kids had seconds, so I estimate the recipe to be about 6 servings. Cooking time is an estimate, depending on how soft you like your apples.
