Apple pie spice- 1/2 tsp cinnamon....1/4tsp nutmeg...1/8 tsp allspice...1/8 tsp cardamon(optional).......I have a big family so I mad 6 servings of oatmeal...added to the water about 6 dried apple rings diced up and a handfull or two of raisins....let water boil added the oatmeal,apple pie spice,2tbsp of margarine and cooked for a few minutes,covered and let sit for about 5 minutes.....added sugar to taste to individual bowls and milk.....


Coffee Cake


1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

for the crumb topping:
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/4 c. unsalted butter, at room temperature

Preheat oven to 375°. Grease and flour a 9″ square pan

Bake for 30 minutes

The perfect oatmeal with all of the flavor of pumpkin pie
◦1/2 cup skim milk
◦1/2 cup water
◦1/3 cup Coach’s Oats
◦2 tablespoons light brown sugar
◦2 1/2 tablespoons 100% pure pumpkin( I did NOT use pumpkin pie filling)
◦1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
◦1 tablespoon half and half
◦3 pecans, toasted (optional)
1.In a small saucepan bring the milk and water to a boil.
2.Add the oats and reduce the heat to a simmer.
3.Cook oats for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4.Remove from heat and allow to sit for 1 minute.
5.Stir in the brown sugar, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice.
6.Pour into a bowl and top with half and half and pecans.
You could use pumpkin pie filling if that is all you have, you would just have to decrease the pumpkin pie spice.

I used oatmeal from Winco's,and only cooked it with water....made 6 servings so added the spices and sugar for 6 servings......topped with chopped pecans and milk not half and half just due to budgetary it with milk would use up milk I can't afford to use and half and half is just to when I can get oatmeal for 0.65 a pound I would be silly to buy a name brand oatmeal....



Oatmeal Apple Crisp
Serves 8 (I make a double recipe as we have usually have 10 or more to feed)

1 cup Oatmeal
1/3 cup flour
3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup melted butter or margarine

Apple Mixture
5 peeled and sliced large cooking apples
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).
Topping: In bowl, combine oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, and salt. Stir in melted butter until crumbly. Set aside.

Apple Mixture: Place apples, in greased 9 inch (2L) square pan (When I double it, I use a 9X13 casserole). Sprinkle lemon juice and brown sugar.

Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over apples.

Bake 30-40 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.
