1 serving of oatmeal, prepared according to package directions
1 tbsp. pumpkin butter
1/2 apple, diced
1 tbsp. brown sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup raisins or dried cranberries

While preparing oatmeal according to package directions, combine water, cinnamon, sugar, salt, and raisins or dried cranberries in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook stirring until sugar dissolves (usually takes less than 1 minute). Add diced apple and reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring frequently until apples are tender, and liquid reduces, about 8-10 minutes. Once oatmeal is prepared, stir in pumpkin butter. Then top with apple mixture and nuts. Enjoy! Makes one serving.
