Apple Spiced Oats

So fall is fast approaching, which means lots of fresh apples! Because of my love for apples, this week I will be including two different apple flavoured oats, which are absolutely divine.

For these oats, I made them oven topped but like all my other oats recipes, it can be baked or put in jars overnight.

Ingredients–1 serving

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

  • 1/2 apple, chopped (any sweet apple–red delicious or gala preferably)
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 2.25 cups of water
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 2 dates
  • a few whole cloves
  • 1 tsp all-spice
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • a handful of almonds-crushed
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Directions

If you have been reading my previous posts, you know the drill.

  1. For stove top
    • In a saucepan add the apples, the spices and half of the coconut sugar in one cup of water. Put the heat up to medium-high and let the apples soften.Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
    • Add the rest of the water and the oats and bring the porridge to a medium heat. As usual you can only add 2 cups of water and add the rest of the fluid as a non-diary milk.
    • Add the chia seeds and stir it into the mixture.
    • As usual, continue to stir the porridges to avoid it from sticking to the bottom and creating a creamy consistency.Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
    • After 10 minutes you will have a warm bowl of oatmeal.
    • Serve the oatmeal with a few chunks of fresh apples, almonds and the rest of the coconut sugar. The apples are already pretty sweet so you will not need more sweetener.
  2. Overnight Oats
    • At the bottom of the jar add the chopped apples, the coconut sugar and the spices and mix well to make sure the apples are covered in the spices
    • Then combine 1 cup of oats with 2.25 cups of water in the jar
    • Add the chia seeds, mix the mixture, then cover the jar and leave it overnight
    • Take out of the fridge the next day and pop it in the microwave for a creamy porridge on the go. I will really advice warming up the porridge because it’s really warming especially on a cold fall morning.
  3. For Baked oats
    • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
    • Combine the ingredients into a bowl and bake the oats for around 20 minutes till the oats crisp up at the top.
    • Take the oats out and let it rest and cool.
    • you can always put this into cupcake tins for breakfast on the go.
