Happy Monday everyone ! Just wanted to take a moment to share a simple but very tasty recipe for those of us that have a bit of a sweet tooth. One of my favorite flavors for oatmeal is green apple and cinnamon. But since trying to eat healthier I had to give up flavored, ready to eat oatmeal’s. Instead I have created the following recipe to satisfy my taste buds.
-steel cut oatmeal (love Trader Joe’s brand) -granny smith apple
-maple syrup -cinnamon powder
-vanilla extract -unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1.) chop the apple ( I use one whole apple for two servings) into square slices. Measure out milk and oatmeal according to prep directions on the brand you use.
2.) Place your pot over medium heat, once warm add desired amount of maple syrup. I like extra sweetness so I used about a tablespoon for two servings. Add a tsp of vanilla extract and then add the apple slices in.
3.) Stirring occasionally allow the apple pieces to get tender. Then add cinnamon powder(eyeball it, to suit your taste buds). Once the apples begin to get browned and your kitchen smells like apple pie, scoop them out into a separate bowl.
4.) With your pot still on medium-low heat, deglaze it by adding a small amount of your measured out milk. Once deglazed add the rest of the milk. Then add a pinch of salt. Mix in your oatmeal once the milk is getting to a boil. Stir frequently, and allow to cook slowly over low heat (this will allow even cooking and give you a very nice thick and creamy final dish). 5.) Towards the end, add the apple back into the oatmeal, and stir gently. Pour your oatmeal into a bowl, and if you would like add some banana slices with a dash of cinnamon.
6.) enjoy 😉
