Please read my Coconut Oatmeal post for the goodness of oatmeal, and its benefits to fertility.
This is one of the recipes we will be using on our 30 day challenge. I know oatmeal can get boring, so I’ll be offering ways to spruce it up…don’t despair.
This is really yummy. I especially love biting into the apples, with the warmth of the honey and cinnamon. OMGosh!!!
You already know you’re making it!
I did two versions from the same recipe (the secret from making the oatmeal double in size is in the pre soaking, thank you ChocolateCoveredKatie!)
The baked ones are soft-set. They don’t harden up, but the top gets crunchy, so it’s like a bowl of oatmeal with a crunchy top. I’m going to make the hard-set version next
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (you can use butter- please no margarine!)
- 2 apples, chopped
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 3 teaspoons of honey (or to taste)
- 1 cup of oats
- 1/2 cup of milk (you can use almond milk)
- Put coconut oil in a small pan over medium-high heat. Add the apples, cinnamon, and honey. Mix and leave to cook for 10 minutes.
- In another pot, cook oatmeal according to package instructions, but don’t add anything (I presoak my oats in 2 1/2 cups of water for 5 minutes, then cook till done).
- Mix the apple into the oatmeal and add milk. Stir and cook for 2 more minutes.
- Serve and enjoy.
- To make the baked version, I removed half of the prepared oatmeal, broke an egg into it, and baked in muffin cups for 25 minutes at 350.
Note: you need a spoon to eat this baked version.
Remember, it’s sooo good for you.
