This really smelled good with the cinnamon and ginger in the morning. I will admit though, that I didn't eat it- because I just don't eat oatmeal, but everyone else did. Naomi liked it the best I think- probably because I don't give her sugar yet, and the applesauce made it sweeter than normal.
This is scaled down from what I made-
3 c. water
1 1/2 c. rolled oats
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
pinch of salt
Mix everything and bring to full rolling boil, stir a couple times, then turn off burner, but leave the pan there for 5 to 10 minutes, uncovered.
Before serving stir in 1 c. applesauce.
