Enjoy dessert for breakfast with these creamy, warming apple crumble oats all cooked in one pan! Juicy apples and spices combine with oats and vegan yoghurt for a really hearty and easy breakfast.
Now that these dark and cold November days are here I’ve completely switched over to hearty and warming breakfasts full of flavour and good things. And I recently discovered this recipe for apples, oats and yoghurt that looked so delicious I had to try it! It was very good as is but I wanted to change a few things to my own personal taste (plus I’m greedy and 1 apple for 2 portions just wasn’t enough for me 😉 ). And so apple crumble oats was born!
Side note – I really recommend Jess’s YouTube channel, I’ve made so many things from her ‘what I eat in a day’ vidoes!
The beauty of these breakfast oats is their adaptability. Change out the fruit, use whatever is your preferred sweetener, sprinkle your own choice of seeds and top with whatever takes your fancy like granola, nuts or even something like bran flakes!
I love the combination of creamy vegan yoghurt and warm, appley oats with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. If you can get it, the Greek style yoghurt by Alpro is simply divine! I top mine with sliced banana and flax seeds for extra crunch and good old fashioned gut health and Omega 3!
How to make apple crumble oats:
Peel, core and roughly dice the apples. Heat a little coconut oil or vegan butter in a frying pan and saute apples until just starting to soften and turn golden.
Add in your oats, spices and choice of sweetener. I’ve used everything from coconut sugar as recommended by Jess to agave syrup, maple syrup and even stevia sweetener. She also used jumbo oats which means the finished dish will have a chewier texture. Personally I used regular porridge oats which resulted in a smoother, creamier finish. I’m also a fan of using what you have so do that!
Add your non-diary milk and bubble for just a couple of minutes so that the oats can absorb the milk.
Spoon some yoghurt into your bowl, top with the warm apple crumble oats, add a sliced banana (or not!), a sprinkle of seeds and tuck in!
This is such a delicious breakfast and it really feels like a treat while still being relatively healthy! Make extra and store leftovers in the fridge as this re-heats really well in the microwave!
