10-Minute Apple Pie Oatmeal Recipe
How good does apple pie oatmeal sound on the scale of 1-10? Honestly to me, it sounded like a 6. And I’m a very generous person with a big heart and washed hair today.
I’m not a huge fan of apples, although I do love this apple crumble pie which I made with these talented hands that are butchering the keyboard right now. Help me, heeelp meeeeeee. Sorry, that eeee got carried away with all the self pity.
I kinda don’t like oatmeal either. I like overnight oats, but warm those tasteless cholesterol-lowering suckers up and I’m ready to say goodbye. And they’re like: “Who cares? Don’t talk to us. We’re way more rich and famous than you’ll ever be.”
Sometimes the truth hurts and sometimes you might get lucky and get a pack of talking oats that will put you in your place and make you cry for hours.
Not this time. This time I took the two foods that taste like paper to me, and I decided to make something that tastes like really good food. I will not let those oats bully me again. I will make something the world will remember. Pretty much like Thomas Edison or the Royal family.
How To Make Apple Pie Oatmeal
The first thing we’re gonna do is that we’re gonna saute the apples in a small cooking pot with some coconut oil and some cinnamon. That’s it. That’s all you need to do to make apples taste good and to get rid of their nutrients, I promise. Okay, so maybe apples will still have the one or the other nutrient and still be healthy. But if you have seasonal allergies and raw apples make you want to scratch your ears and your throat from the inside with your tongue, then you’ll also get rid of that wonderful feeling too. Guess how I know? I cannot eat raw apples and God forbid I touch my eye after I’ve peeled an apple, but I can eat them cooked. And I also want to eat them cooked because they’re delicious. Now take those apples and transfer them to a cleaner container because they don’t like dirty pots.
You know who likes dirty pots? Oats. Throw them into the dirty cooking pot, add some water, some coconut cream (which is just the creamy firm part in a coconut milk can) and cook for a few minutes. I usually cook quick oats, because I like their texture better for most of my cooking – overnight oats or pancakes. Stir until your arm feels like it needs a rest and add water if you need to. I have no idea how everyone else makes their oatmeal, but this is what I do.
Then once you got the desired consistency – put the oats into a bowl, top with the apples and top with some of your other favorite toppings! Here’s what I used.
I used some of my favorite things to top off this apple pie oatmeal. Here they are:
- Honey (use maple syrup for an easy vegan option)
- Almond butter
- Chopped nuts
- Coconut cream
A little bit of everything and it was simple and delicious! The apples were still a bit crunchy, I loved the chopped nuts too. It’s just a perfect breakfast for a cold day.
I hope you enjoy it, if you decide to try it out!
- 1 tbsp coconut cream
- 1/2 cup oats
- ½ cup water
- ⅔ cup apples
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- some vanilla
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp water
- Chop the apple. Add to a small cooking pot with some coconut oil, add cinnamon, vanilla and stir. Add 1 tbsp water, stir and cook for 2 more minutes.
- Transfer the apples to a container and use the same pot to cook the oatmeal. Add some water to cook the oats. Add the oats, stir and add some more water to cover. Stir in the coconut cream (top firm part of a coconut milk can) and cook for about 2 minutes (I used quick oats).
- Put the oatmeal into a bowl, top with the apples, some almond butter, honey or maple syrup (vegan) and chopped nuts. Top with some coconut cream if you desire. Enjoy.
