RECIPE: Apple Pie Oatmeal

How about apple pie for breakfast—sort of?

An apple crumb pie has a streusel topping made with oats, brown sugar and butter.

The oatmeal recipe below is a close cousin, made with apples, apple pie spices…and oats, brown sugar and butter.

Alex Caspero, MA, RD, CLT, who developed the recipe for Fruits And Veggies More Matters, advises:

“To cut down on prep time for busy mornings, make a double or triple batch earlier in the week; then portion out in individual jars or containers. When you’re ready to eat, splash with a bit more milk and warm through, or enjoy it cold.”

We say: It’s good enough to have for dessert: as is, with sliced bananas, a dollop of sour cream or ice cream.

 
RECIPE: APPLE PIE OATMEAL

Ingredients For 2 Servings

  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup diced apple
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1¼ cup unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
  • 2 1 tablespoon brown sugar or 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  
    Preparation

    1. HEAT the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the apple and cook for 3-4 minutes until just softened. If you prefer your apples softer, cook them a few minutes longer.

    2. WHISK in the oats, cinnamon, ginger, almond milk, maple syrup and applesauce. Reduce heat to low and simmer until thickened and oats have cooked through, about 6-8 minutes.

    3. Stir in the vanilla extract, taste for sweetness (adding in more brown sugar maple syrup as desired), divide into two bowls and serve.

    Brown sugar is a refined product: white sugar with some of the molasses added back in.

    Maple syrup is a largely unrefined sweetener, made by boiling the sap of maple trees.

    They have different flavor profiles, and different nutritional profiles. You can read more about it here.

    Here are the different types of sugar and sweeteners.
