This makes 1-2 servings

Sliced apples (skin off) (organic is nice)
Add apples to saucepan with 1/4 cup water

Squeeze a fresh lemon 
Cinnamon to taste
Sweetener of choice (Stevia, honey, raw organic sugar etc.) to taste. 

Allow to simmer until apples are soft and sauce thickens. 

Cook oatmeal as per package directions but you want it sticky not watery.
