Cinnamon Apple Porridge

There are many reasons why autumn is my favourite season. One of which is the seasonal foods and recipes that come with the colder temperatures. Food is just more comforting in the fall. Comfort food doesn't have to be unhealthy. This cinnamon apple porridge hits the spot every morning and is packed with only good things, no sugar added (besides the maple syrup), not to mention quick to prepare. If you're pressed for time you could use the instant oatmeal or quick oats packages, but I find porridge cooked on the stovetop tastes much better and is well worth the time.

Cinnamon Apple Porridge

(for 1 person)

1 apple, peeled, cut and diced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon butter
whole rolled oats

In a saucepan on medium heat, melt butter and add the diced apple and cinnamon, making sure that the apples are evenly coated by the cinnamon. Stir occasionally so the apples don't stick or burn. Remove from heat when the apples have softened and are golden brown. In another saucepan (or the same one) prepare oats as indicated on the packaging. Make sure to stir so it doesn't stick! When the porridge is cooked, serve in bowl add cinnamon and maple syrup to taste and finish off with granola for an added crunch.

It takes me about 10 minutes from start to finish so it is very quick.
