Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Recipe with Trader Joe’s Rolled Oats Is Gluten-Free Goodness

What is it about Trader Joe’s? That store offers so many fascinating products we’ve talked about on 30Seconds, from chili onion crunch to orange chicken to sunflower butter cookies. Yep, we’re fans!

Another Trader Joe’s product I’m a fan of is its rolled oats. From the package: “Trader Joe’s Rolled Oats are pure, gluten-free oats grown in dedicated oat fields and packaged in a gluten-free facility. These old-fashioned style oats are full of flavor and have a satisfying chewy texture perfect for oatmeal cookies and granola or ground into oat flower for baking. Each half cup serving of cooked oatmeal provided 16g of whole grains.”

I came up with this easy apple cinnamon oatmeal recipe using these yummy oats. Hope you enjoy it for breakfast as much as I do!
