Introduction: Apple Pie Oatmeal Breakfast
Apple Pie Oatmeal Breakfast
Simple, fast, warm and delicious would describe this apple pie oatmeal breakfast. It has all the flavors of a warm apple pie fresh out of the oven but it is also a heart healthy, filling and nutritious breakfast that is not overly sweet. It can also be premade and warmed up in the microwave at time.
Step 1: Make the Apple Topping
1 medium apple – peeled and cubed
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablepoon vegan butter
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a medium sauce pan, melt butter and sugar. Add cubed apples and cook for about 2-3 minutes or until apples start to soften. Cook to desired texture, I like a bit of crunch in the middle of the apple. Remove from heat and set aside.
Step 2: Cook the Oatmeal
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup almond milk
1 cup apple cider
Remove from heat and set aside. Place milk, apple cider and oatmeal in a medium sauce pan and cook thoroughly for approximately 5 minutes or until oatmeal is tender and becomes thick. Remove from heat and transfer oatmeal into two separate bowls, top with apple topping and chopped pecans.
