A sweet & spicy, satisfying apple pie oatmeal breakfast creation with raisins and chopped nuts.
This oatmeal recipe, inspired by the world famous apple pie, is a nourishing healthy breakfast that contains good plant-based protein, healthy essential fats and good carbs. It’s a well balanced meal!
I love the simple flavours of the apple, cinnamon, vanilla, oats, raisins and pecan nuts… alone they are delicious but together they are out-of-this-world amazing!
This breakfast is satisfying, delicious-yet-simple, filling and it will keep you going for hours. It’s also 100% refined sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free and free from any other processed or refined ingredients.
A few fun facts about apples: The apple is the most popular fruit in the world – and for good reason! An apple is easy to carry around (good for snacks), it’s delicious eaten by itself or added to breakfasts & desserts and it’s packed with nutrients. The apple is very high in vitamin C, vitamin K, phytonutrients (a type of antioxidant), fibre and potassium!
