1/2 cup oats (gluten-free if desired)
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
1/2 small apple (chopped)
1/2 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tbsp flaxseeds
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
Drizzle of maple syrup
Step by step:
Wash, dry, and slice your apple into small pieces
To a small frypan on medium heat, add in your apples and allow to cook for approximately 3-4 minutes, de-glazing the pan with water as needed (alternatively, you can also melt some vegan butter on the pan before putting the apples in and allow them to cook in butter)
After your apples have started to soften, add in your coconut sugar and cinnamon, and allow to cook for another 1-2 minutes
While the apples are cooking, to a small saucepan on medium heat, add in your oats and non-dairy milk
Stir together and allow to cook for approximately 4-5 minutes, or until the oats reach a boil and are cooked through
When oats and apples are ready, carefully transfer them to a heat safe bowl
Stir together, add any optional toppings, and enjoy!
