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:
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!
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!
