Maple Nut Oatmeal, with apples, raisins, pecans (or walnuts) and maple syrup is an easy, filling, delicious breakfast everyone will enjoy!
Pour milk into a large saucepan; bring it to a gentle boil on medium heat. Once it begins to boil, add the rolled oats; stir to combine. Add butter and salt to oats. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring often. Milk will reduce in volume as it is absorbed into the oats.
When oatmeal has cooked for 5 minutes, remove the pan from the heat. Stir in chopped apples, raisins, walnuts (or pecans), maple syrup and cinnamon, until fully combined. Immediately divide hot oatmeal into individual portions and place in serving bowls.
Add a bit of additional milk (if desired) and stir to the consistency you prefer (oatmeal is thick). OPTIONAL BUT RECOMMENDED: Drizzle a little maple syrup over the top of each serving OR sprinkle each portion with a teaspoon of brown sugar. Serve hot, and enjoy!
