Cozy Oatmeal

I found this recipe searching through Country Living's website. It looks yummy. I'm not a big walnut fan so I'd probably substitute a different nut like almonds or pecans.  Enjoy!

Ingredients
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup quick-cooking oats
2/3 cup shredded apple
1/3 cup raisins
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp chopped walnuts (or other nuts)
Butter

Directions
In a 2-quart saucepan, combine 2 cups water, cinnamon, and salt; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add oats and cook 3 minutes.
Stir in the shredded apple, raisins, 1 tbsp maple syrup, and 1 tbsp nuts. Cook 5 minutes more. Divide oatmeal between 2 serving bowls. Drizzle remaining maple syrup over top and sprinkle with nuts. Garnish with butter, if desired.
Tips & Techniques
Instant oats may be used instead of the quick-cooking kind. Combine 2 cups water, cinnamon, salt, oats, apples, and raisins. Bring to a boil and remove from heat; top with the maple syrup, walnuts, and butter, if desired
