Nutty Apple Pie Oatmeal

I’m a lover of comforting food. Whenever I can, I will choose a warm meal for a cold one. Especially in winter, I like to begin my day with something that not only fills me up until lunchtime but also is healthy and warms me from inside. Lately, I’m totally obsessed with this oatmeal creation I’m whipping up in the kitchen every other morning for the past few weeks now. My version of an apple pie turned healthy breakfast treat. It is filled with all the flavours from the traditional apple pie my grandma used to bake when I was little but without the guilt of inhaling a lot of carbs and sugar. It is rather filled with a bunch of nutritious ingredients to create a balanced and delicious meal. The best part? You can also whip this up the evening before and reheat it the next day or eat cold when you know you’ll have a stressful morning ahead. Scroll down for the easy recipe.

Nutty Apple Pie Oatmeal

(Serves 1)

Oatmeal:

1/2 cup rolled oats

1 cup water

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp grated hazelnuts

1 tsp ground flaxseed

Apple topping:

1 apple (I used a sweater variety)

1 heaped tsp honey

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

(sliced almonds for garnish)

For the apple topping heat the honey in a saucepan over medium-high heat and put in the apple sliced into pieces. Add the cinnamon and vanilla extract and saute on low heat for a few minutes until the apples soften. Meanwhile, bring the water in another saucepan to a boil and add the oatmeal and cinnamon. Saute for a few minutes on low heat until the oats thicken to the desired consistency, add more water as needed. Remove from heat and add the hazelnuts and flaxseed. Put into a bowl or jar and top with the caramelized apples. Garnish with some almond slices to your liking and enjoy.
