  • 1 cup thick-cut Rolled oats, GF
  • 4 cups Almond milk (You can use your fave plant-based milk!)
  • ¼ cup Agave syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt


  • 2 medium Gala apples, cubed into medium chunks (skin on)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Extra virgin olive oil


  • 1 cup thick-cut Rolled oats, GF
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter, melted
  • 2 tsps pure maple syrup



  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a medium skillet (10-inch) with melted vegan butter or olive oil.
  • In a bowl, add together the chopped apples, cinnamon, salt, maple syrup, and olive oil, mixing until combined and apples are coated. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, add the oats, chopped pecans, melted butter, and maple syrup, mixing until wet and crumble can be pressed together.
  • Add the apple mixture to the prepared skillet and top with crumble, evenly spreading everything out. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crumble is golden brown and crisp and apples are tender.


  • Add oats, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until everything is combined. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low so that everything simmers for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Once done, oats should thicken and become swollen + fluffy and creamy with half the the liquid still remaining. Stir in the Agave and vanilla and let simmer for an additional 1-2 minutes before removing it from heat.
  • To serve, portion oatmeal into serving bowl(s) and top with apple crumble, and a light drizzle of Agave or maple syrup, if desired.
  • Bon Appetit!


  • STORAGE: Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Perfect for meal prep for the week!
  • OVERNIGHT OPTION: Simply add all oatmeal ingredients to a bowl and mix together until combined. Tightly cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (or at least 8 hours). Once ready to serve, make apple crumble topping separately and top overnight oats and enjoy.
  • SWEETENER: Instead of Agave you can simply use Pure maple syrup to oatmeal as a sweetener.
