1 apple, diced
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, divided
2 cups old fashioned oats
3 3/4 cups water
1 banana, mashed
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
Honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup (optional)
In a medium saucepan sprayed with cooking spray, saute the diced apple and 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice over medium-heat until lightly browned and tender, about 4 minutes. Remove half the apple mixture and set aside. Add the oats to the remaining apple mixture in the sauce pan and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes, until the oats begin to toast.
Add the water, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, banana, and peanut butter. Stir and bring mixture to a boil and then turn heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes. Top with the reserved sauteed apple before serving. Drizzle with honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup, if desired.
Makes 4 servings.
