Place juice, water, apple and seasonings in microwave proof measuring cup. Microwave for 2½ min.
Place oatmeal in microwave proof serving bowl.
Add microwaved apple mixture to oatmeal.
Microwave 1 min for quick oats, 3 min for regular.
Notes: Seasonings can be adjusted according to taste. Half apples keep well until the next day or two by wrapping the unpealed half in plastic wrap.
Granny Smith or Macintosh apples are great for this.
