Apple pie for breakast?! Um, YES PLEASE.
Apple season is here and I couldn't be more excited. Oatmeal tends to go on the back burner throughout the summer, but I know it's fall when I start craving it again in the morning. This oatmeal tastes just like apple pie, and who doesn’t want their breakfast to taste like apple pie?!
Would it be too much to have my other fall obsession, my Vegan, Paleo Apple Crisp on the same day? I’m going to go with no. Never enough apples!!
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.
