Favorite Oatmeal Bowl

Favorite Oatmeal Bowl

I wanted to share my favorite oatmeal combination at the moment. It is warming, comforting, and delicious. It seriously tastes like apple pie in a bowl, and it’s simple and easy to make.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Honeycrisp Apple

  • 1 tsp Ghee — I use 4th & Heart Madagascar Vanilla Bean!

  • 1/3 cup Quick Cooking Oats

  • 2/3 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk

  • 1 tbsp Flax Seeds

  • 1 tbsp Pecans

  • Cinnamon — to your taste ( I use a lot! )

  • Cardamom — to your taste

  • 1 tsp maple syrup — adjust to your taste

  • Optional: A few drops of Stevia — your preference!

Directions:

Heat a skillet and add 1 tsp of ghee to the pan. Once the ghee is melted add the apples and cook (you can follow my stewed fruits recipe for this part).

While the apple is cooking, prepare the oatmeal. Bring 2/3 cup of the almond milk to a bowl in a small pot. Once it’s lightly boiling, add the 1/3 cup oats and stir while they cook for about a minute. Add the cinnamon and cardamom to your taste, and the 1 tbsp flax seeds. Add a few drops of stevia here if you like to sweeten with stevia.

Remove the oatmeal from the heat and stir it a little bit. Let it get to your preference — if you like it with more liquid you can add some almond milk (I like mine drier).

Once the oatmeal is cooled off a bit, add the 1 tbsp of pecans and stewed apples (making sure to get some of melted ghee in there!) Mix it well, drizzle the maple syrup on top, sprinkle more cinnamon, and serve!

Stewed Fruit Recipe

Stewed Fruit Recipe

During the colder, rainier months I crave a warm, grounding breakfast. I just can’t bring myself to want anything that’s cold or raw because my body already feels cold inside.

That’s why I am obsessed with my warm matcha tonics in the morning as well as these stewed fruits! It’s a great way to enjoy fruit that still feels warming and comforting.

When it comes to making stewed fruits, I like to keep it very simple with minimal ingredients. My friend sent me this great recipe, which looks delicious, but I have perfected my own recipe that I will share here.

There is so much you can do with these stewed fruits — put it on top of oatmeal, toast, pancakes OR you can add all sorts of toppings to it — like yogurt, your favorite nut butter, coconut flakes, granola or hemp seeds.

My personal favorite combination is a slice of gluten free buckwheat toast from honey hi topped with some sunflower butter, stewed fruits, lots of cinnamon and then some coconut flakes :)

Here is my recipe:

Ingredients

- honeycrisp apple, or fruit of your choosing, cut into 1” pieces — pears, persimmons, peaches and raspberries work well! I used a honeycrisp apple and raspberries in the photo above

- 2 tsp of ghee — I like to use the 4th & Heart Madagascar Vanilla ghee — you can use coconut oil for a vegan alternative

- cinnamon — to your taste (I like a lot)

- cardamom — to your taste (I usually use a small sprinkle, about 1/4 tsp)

- pinch of pink himalayan salt

Instructions

- Heat a small pot on the stovetop. Once the bowl is warm add the 2 tsp of ghee, when the ghee is melted add the apple or fruit pieces. Stir them around and let them cook for a few minutes, then lower the heat and cover the pot and let it cook for about five minutes

- Keep stirring them around and keeping an eye on them. If they start to get too dry you can add a little bit of water (about 1 tbsp) but not more than that because you don’t want them to get watery.

- Once the apples are soft (but not falling apart) remove them from heat and let them cool down a little bit.

- Prepare your toast or get your other ingredients ready and either add the stewed fruits on top, or assemble your bowl of stewed fruits with all your favorite fixings!
