Since the weather is turning colder (at least here in the northern hemisphere), I’ve been craving some more warming and filling breakfasts, and a good example for that has to be oatmeal! Oatmeal is such a versatile dish, there are literally thousands of ways to make it, and today I’ll be sharing one of my favourite recipes. As someone who loves apple pie, I am always open for a more healthy version that I can eat as much as I want without the added fat and excess sugar. Now I would be lying if this bowl didn’t taste like a healthy version of apple pie, of course with a different texture, but flavour wise my cravings were met.
These also don’t require to much time in the kitchen, perfect for busy mornings! All you need to do is chop an apple, throw everything in a pan and stir a couple of times. You can cut out even more time by making overnight oats, which I’ll be making a recipe for asap. Actually since oatmeal is so versatile, expect more recipes with different variations!
I love pairing this with some coconut yoghurt, fresh fruit and nuts, of course you can use your imagination when it comes to the toppings. Other options are grated coconut, raisins, cranberry’s, chocolate (yup chocolate is a normal thing to have for breakfast) and pecan nuts, just to name some toppings. I also added some chia seeds to the oatmeal, simply for some added nutritional value, so feel free to skip these if you don’t have any on hand. Now you know what I’ll be eating for breakfast for the next couple of days!
