Baked Apple Oatmeal


From the moment my alarm goes off, I’m on a time crunch to do everything that needs to be done before I have to be at uni. Priorities include checking instagram, patting my cat, showering and eating. Usually in that order.

If you have spare time in the morning to bake apples, you’re probably not getting enough sleep and you should go and take a nap right now.

There is a way to fake baked apples though, so you can eat something as delicious as baked apple oatmeal!


Baked Apple Oatmeal
Serves 1

For the oatmeal:
1/2 cup quick oats
2/3 cup milk
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp honey

For the apples:
1 small apple
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground ginger
1/2 tsp cornflour
1 tbsp water

Peel your apple if you prefer and slice into wedges before placing into a microwavable ziplock back or bowl. Add in sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cornflour and water and shake or stir to combine. If using a bowl, cover with glad wrap, or seal your ziplock bag (leaving a little space for hot air to escape), and place into the microwave for 4 minutes on high.
For your oatmeal, combine oats, chia seeds, vanilla and milk in a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes or until your oats have softened. Place your ‘baked’ apples on top, drizzle with honey and serve.
