Apple season is here and I couldn't be more excited. Oatmeal has kind of been on the back burner all summer, but I know it's fall when I start craving it again in the morning. This oatmeal tastes just like apple pie, and I'm sure the whole family will enjoy it!
Apple Pie Oatmeal
Serves 1 // Gluten Free (if GF oats are used), Vegan, Vegetarian, Dairy Free (if non-dairy milk is used), Refined Sugar-Free
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 & 1/2 (another 1/2 for serving) medium Gala apple, cored, and chopped into 1-inch pieces
1 Tbs chia seeds
1 cup almond milk (or your milk of choice)
1 tsp cinnamon (plus more for sprinkling)
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbs maple syrup
pinch of shredded coconut for serving
1 Tbs hemp seeds, for serving
In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine oats, 1 & 1/2 apples chopped, chia seeds, milk, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a low boil and then turn down the heat to simmer for 8-10minutes, stirring often so it doesn't stick on the bottom.
When mixture has thickened, remove from heat and add vanilla extract and maple syrup.
Pour oatmeal into a bowl and top with coconut, hemp seeds, and 1/2 sliced apple, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
