apple pie oatmeal

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and evenly sliced
  • 1 tsp honey (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond)
  • pinch salt
  • 4 dates, finely chopped

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 190 C.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and toss apples with lemon juice, cinnamon and honey. Bake for 5 minutes then roll over parchment paper and tuck it in so they’re in a “pocket” to trap in moisture. Cook for 10-15 minutes more (20 minutes total) until soft. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan over high heat, add oats, pinch salt, water and almond milk and stir. When it comes to a boil, reduce to low-medium heat and cook until thick and creamy. Add the chopped dates a few minutes after you reduce the heat so they can soften and sweeten the oats.
  4. Once thick, remove from stove top. Add a little almond milk if it’s too thick for your liking.
  5. Arrange 1/3 cup baked apples in bottom of a serving bowl and top with oats. Other toppings may include, nuts, nut butter, flaxseed, honey or cinnamon. I prefer mine with a few toasted pecans and flaxseed.
