Comfort Food Oatmeal

Comfort Food Oatmeal

Oatmeal. Cheap, filling, and good for you. There’s something about oatmeal made with cinnamon, apples and currants that says comfort to me. It’s easy and a great way to use up that less than crisp apple in the fridge. As a bonus, it makes the kitchen smell all cinnamon-y good.


  • 1 C large flake oats (gluten-free if that matters to you)
  • 2 C water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1-2″ of cinnamon stick
  • 1 apple, peeled, quartered and sliced
  • 1/2 C currants


  1. Bring salted water to a boil.
  2. Stir in the oats and add the cinnamon stick.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low and set the timer for 10 minutes.
  4. Slice the apple into the pot and add the currants.
  5. Stir occasionally.
  6. Remove from heat after 10 minutes and let stand for 2 minutes.
  7. Top with your favourites or eat it as it. I topped mine with a splash of maple syrup.
