Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

I think I am losing my mind. For example, last week I thought I lost my debit card. I went to get lunch with co-workers and pulled out my wallet and my card wasn’t there. I didn’t get too worried, I figured maybe it was home. But then my husband got home before me and said it wasn’t there. When I got home we went through my car and my purse (twice). I tried to think back to the last time I used it, I thought it was Target so I called to see if they found it. No luck. So just to be careful, I reported it missing. As soon as I hung up, I told my husband that I would find it any minute. Later that night while I was drifting off to sleep. I had an epiphany. It was in the trash in our bathroom. In a CVS bag that the girl threw it in with my allergy meds just the day before.

See? I’m losing it. This was just one example of my craziness. I could go on, but I like you guys too much to torture you with that.

At least I think I still have it together in the kitchen. This baked apple cinnamon oatmeal is fall in a bowl. It’s warm and comforting and full of apple goodness. It’s a great breakfast to make for yourself, but it can easily be doubled to feed a bigger crowd. Oh, and did I mention it’s super easy to make too?!

  1. It happens to me all.the.time! I think I’ve lost something, I start to freak out and it’s actually just next to me haha. That’s a good thing you finally found your card!
    I LOVE apple and cinnamon crisps so I’m pretty sure I would love this oatmeal as well! I bet your kitchen smelt amazing :)

  2. Mmmm this sounds like a perfect fall breakfast! haha it sounds like your week has been like mine – I was a giant mess all last week. My personal favorite was when I picked up my husband’s suits from the dry cleaner and managed to somehow drop them (they even fell out of the plastic) all over the floor inside the store. It was ridiculous.

  3. Yum! What a great Fall breakfast! I have been on such an oatmeal kick lately too!! As for the craziness, I do the same thing and my card is usually in my back pocket or the pocket of my sweatshirt! I do it all the time and panic like crazy!!!! Hey, at least you found it!

  4. I’ve done that numerous times. This oatmeal looks perfect for breakfast, and it screams fall.

  5. Happens all the time…wish there was some app like ‘find my phone’..find my key, find my card..:)
    This mix looks so good.

  6. This sounds like the perfect fall breakfast. Warm, cozy, and involves two of my staples: apples and oatmeal.

    PS: I’ve thought I lost my credit card multiple times. It’s usually in my pockets. Through the wash!

  9. I lost my mind years ago. I am always losing things… especially things I just used or saw the day before. I have a knack of putting things in “safe” places so they don’t get lost… and I forget where I put them. LOL!

    Love this healthy and fall flavored baked oatmeal. :)
