Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, but I am usually short on time and I need something quick and easy to help me start the day off right.
I am always searching for the perfect breakfast recipe and I think I have found the one.
I got the idea for this recipe from the Deliciously Ella Cookbook which I love and have done a small post on book one and book 2 before. I loved the recipe and have been trying out different variations of the recipe until I made this particular one and I have been making this recipe every week ever since.
I usually bake a huge dish on a weekend so I have breakfast ready for the following week. I cut it into portions and keep a couple of pieces which I will use within a few days in the fridge and I freeze the rest.
In the morning I put the portion in a pan in a little coconut oil and cover it and heat on medium heat for 5-10minutes (I usually use this time to get dressed / do my makeup) after around 10 minutes I take the lid off and leave it for another couple of minutes so the bottom of the bake will crisp a little bit.
I usually serve my portion with some fruit such as bananas, strawberries or any other seasonal fruit.
So on to the recipe:
4 mugs oats
3 mugs almond milk
6 red apples
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons hazelnut butter (optional)
1 . Soak the oats in the almond milk for around 10 minutes
2 . Peel the apples and cut them into small cubes (I have tried it with the apple skin on, but I prefer it without as the texture is more smooth.)
- Variation: I sometimes grate 3 of the apples and cut the other 3 into cubes, but I prefer having more big pieces in it so I usually cut all 6 apples into cubes – It’s a matter of personal preference 🙂
3 . Stir the cinnamon, maple syrup and hazelnut butter into the oat mix, once combined, stir in the apple cubes
4 . Pour into baking dishes and bake for 20-30 minutes on 215 degrees celcius or until golden brown.
5 . Once cooked divide into portions and enjoy!
I usually server it with a banana and some other seasonal fruit to add more vitamins to my breakfast!
