I love oats for breakfast in winter, they keep me full until lunch time and they take only minutes to make. This recipe requires a tiny bit more effort to include the caramelised apples but I promise you it’s worth it! 

“Oats, via their high fiber content, are known to help remove cholesterol from the digestive system that would otherwise end up in the bloodstream” (1)

Ingredients

  • 50g gluten free rolled porridge oats
  • 250ml milk of your choice (we use Coconut from Rude Health)
  • 1 eating apple – Pink Lady apples work especially well
  • 1 table spoon Coconut Oil
  • 1 table spoon honey (we use Hilltop Honey)
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger

Method

    1. First make your apples. Do not peel. Slice half way across into rings approximately 3mm thick – you should make about four or five. Chop the rest into cubes.
    2.  Heat your coconut oil and honey in a frying pan and add your apple rings face down. Fry for about 4 minutes and then flip over to fry the other side for a further 2 minutes. The rings should caramelise and become sticky. At this point add the apple cubes to the pan and cook for about 3 minutes.
    3. Now mix together oats, milk, cinnamon and ginger and cook over a medium heat until it reaches your desired texture.
    4. Spoon into a bowl and serve topped with your apple rings, apple cubes and a splash more of milk if required.
