Instructions
  1. Bring cups water and salt to a full boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Stir in oats. Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, 6 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  2. While oatmeal cooks, combine all the spread ingredients in a small bowl and stir until well blended. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/4 cup of the spice spread; refrigerate remaining spread for later use. When bubbly, add the apple slices and cook 3 minutes or until tender, stirring gently.
  3. Remove from heat and let stand 1 minute to absorb flavors. Divide oatmeal equally among four bowls. Spoon equal amounts of the apple mixture over each serving.
