Combine the oats, salt and 1¼ cups cold water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, core the apple and thinly slice half and dice the other half.

Stir the diced apple into the oats and continue cooking until the apple has softened but the pieces hold their shape and the oats are tender and the mixture creamy, 3 to 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt. Transfer to a bowl, sprinkle the cinnamon on top and garnish with the apple slices. Serve hot.

Variations:
Cardamom Apple Oatmeal: Substitute ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom for cinnamon or add it in addition to the cinnamon.

Walnut Apple Oatmeal: Sprinkle 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts on top of the oatmeal before serving.
