In a small bowl, combine the oats with 1 cup water and microwave for 2 minutes.
Add half of the chopped apple, the brown sugar, and the milk and stir thoroughly. Top the oatmeal with the rest of the chopped apple and sprinkle with the cinnamon. Microwave the oatmeal for 1 additional minute and serve.
