Just-Add-Water Instant Oatmeal with Apples and Cinnamon

Getting reviews...
Try making your own instant oatmeal for breakfast at work or school. Just prep the night before, add boiling water, wait a few minutes and eat! We love the tanginess from the apple butter and the richness from just a little bit of butter.
