Ingredients

  • 1 cup Thick-cut rolled oats, GF certified
  • 3/4 cup Almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 cup Dairy-free vanilla yogurt
  • 2 Tbsps pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • pinch of ground cardamom
  • pinch of sea salt

CARAMELIZED APPLES:

  • 1 Tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 tsp organic brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled + chopped in chunks

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:

  • Your favorite nuts, toasted
  • Cocowhip

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a medium bowl, stirring until well combined.
  • Tightly cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (or at least 8 hours).

CARAMELIZED APPLES:

  • In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the butter and heat until melted. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and sea salt and stir until combined and everything begins to bubble a bit, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add apples, tossing everything together until apples are well coated and cook for 5-6 minutes or until apples are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and serve immediately. NOTE: Sauce should thicken and become "caramelized" within this time without burning.
  • To serve (hot or cold), add oats to a bowl or mason jar and top it with the caramelized apples, your favorite nuts, and Cocowhip, if desired.
  • Bon Appetit!

Notes

  • STORAGE: Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Perfect for meal prep for the week!
  • TOASTED NUTS: Add chopped nuts to a baking sheet and toasting them in the oven (400 degrees Fahrenheit) for 5-10 minutes, tossing them halfway to avoid browning on one side.
  • SWEETENER: Instead of pure maple syrup, you can simply use Agave or applesauce.
  • MILK: You can use your favorite plant-based milk, whether Soy, Oat, Coconut, Flax milk, etc.
