Apple Pie Oatmeal

June 10, 2015

Apple Pie OatmealThis breakfast is definitely one of my favorite breakfasts EVER. I’ve been making this for quite some time now, but I didn’t photograph it earlier for the blog, as – lets just be honest about it – it is so so so difficult to make oatmeal look tasty! Sometimes I even have to remind myself that what I’m going to have for breakfast is actually really delicious and healthy and good for you… So, I never even tried to photograph it, until this weekend! So hereby I present to you: the best oatmeal you’re ever going to have, without all the nasty stuff and added sugars and the like.

Apple Pie OatmealIt is great to make in the morning as a quick breakfast. I know some people really have problems with getting up in time to make a proper breakfast (myself included!) but somehow I also find it really relaxing to wake up maybe 15 minutes earlier to have make time to make a nice breakfast that’s going to keep me feeling full until lunchtime. Of course you could also just make it the night beforehand and warm it up the next day, or just eat it cold, although I would really recommend eating it straight out of the pan!

Apple Pie OatmealWhat I love so much about this breakfast is that it just smells and tastes so good! Just like the Dutch apple pie :) If you make this in the morning, I’m sure the great smell will put you into a good mood for the rest of the day, or at least it does for me.

If you don’t have any raisins or walnuts on hand, you can skip them of course, but they do really add a nice crunch and flavor, so if you have the opportunity, don’t skip them! Oh and I can really really recommend enjoying a nice cup of rooibos tea alongside the oats, it really is a great combination

40 gram oatmeal
1 apple, finely diced
20 gram walnuts, chopped

    As a Scot I’ve only ever taken my porridge with salt for many years however I am a recent convert to sweet oatmeal and this combo sounds very tempting and you have made it look so appetising which I know is a hard task.

      Thank you so much Claire! Yes, making the oatmeal look appetising really was a huuuge task, but I love oatmeal so much that I decided I should just put some extra effort into the photos to be able to share them on my blog. I’m so happy you like them!! Please let me know when you make it, I would love to hear your opinion on my recipe. xx Emma
