Spiced Apple Oatmeal with Pecans

This oatmeal is the perfect thing to have after a cold winter run. I like to have something small before my morning runs and then have a big hearty breakfast after! I reckon the best time to have this oatmeal is in the winter because apples are in season and you can get them dirt-cheap. Plus everyone must crave some kinda apple pudding, whether its pie, crumble or even oatmeal!

Ingredients (For 2 people):

  • 1 mug of oats or blended oats (oatmeal)
  • 2 apples
  • 2 teaspoons of coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • A handful of pecans
  • 1 mug of almond milk

Method:

  1. Chop the apples into bite size chunks and add them to a small saucepan with the coconut oil and maple syrup, then stir to combine.
  2. Cover the pan with a lid, turn the heat on low, and then leave the apples to soften for around 5-10 minutes.
  3. While the apples are stewing, toast some pecans in a frying pan; there is no need to add any oil.
  4. Once the apples are soft, add the cinnamon, oats and almond milk then stir until the oatmeal is gloopy!
  5. Serve in a round cereal bowl and top with the pecans, more cinnamon and maple syrup (if you want).
