Hot Cereal in the AM

There is nothing I enjoy for breakfast more than hot cereal. When fall rolls around and theres a morning chill in the air, what could be better than a warm bowl of delicious goodness?

This morning I really went all out. With sauteed apples, almonds, and a creamy maple sauce, my Bob's Red Mill hot cereal was out of this world.

Creamy Maple-Apple Hot Cereal with Almonds

3 tbsp. Bob's Red Mill GF mighty tasty hot cereal
1 scant cup of water
pinch of salt

1/4 cup hazelnut milk
6 tbsp. Cracker Barrel sugar free maple syrup (1 tbsp. set aside)
1/4 apple, chopped
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice plus a pinch

Boil the water and stir in the hot cereal. Turn the heat to medium low. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile start cooking the apple over medium.
Mix together the milk, 5 tbsp. syrup, cornstarch, and pumpkin pie spice and add to the apples.
Cook until the mixture thickens (about five minutes).
Stir remaining syrup and a pinch of pumpkin spice into the hot cereal and top with apple syrup and almonds.
