Cut the apple into flat slices.
Dice half of the apple slices.
Place the diced apples into a 2.5 quart sauce pan, and dry sauté the apples over medium heat for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, you should hear sizzling and be able to smell the apples. Turn off the heat and set the pot off of the burner. Let the pot cool for 1 minute.
After the pot has cooled a little, add in the almond milk and place the pot back onto the burner. Bring the almond milk to a near-full boil.
Add in the applesauce container, maple syrup, brown sugar, and water. Stir well, then bring to a full boil.
Once the milk is foamed from the boiling, add in the oats. Cover with a lid and leave for 1-2 minutes.
Remove the pan from the burner and mix well. Your oatmeal is now ready! You can add cinnamon to taste, and any other topping you might like. The unused apples can be used to dip into the oatmeal if you haven't eaten them already!
