Applesauce oats

This week, I have been trying to use up a lot of stuff at home instead of buying more at the grocery (saved me $20!) but I’ve had to be a little inventive in getting in my fruit servings. My preferred method is a banana sliced up in my oats, but since I did not buy any this week, I had to improvise.

Enter Applesauce Oats!

I used 1/4 cup of Musselman’s chunky applesauce (which is good except for the HFCS — trying to use it up) and cooked it with 1/2 cup oats + 1/2 cup water.

When it was done, I stirred in 1 tbsp flax meal and some cinnamon and topped it off with the most important part (to me): peanut butter.

It tasted really good. The chunks of apples almost make it seem like there was a “real” apple in there. I’ve still got a whole pantry of stuff to use up so next week should be pretty interesting too. But I like it; the situation forces me to be creative 😉

What is the most interesting meal you have come up with using random ingredients at home?
