Apple Pie Oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (use certified gluten-free, if necessary)
  • 1 large apple, peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces (about 1 1/3 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch fine sea salt
  • 1 to 1 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk, as needed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice (optional)
SUGGESTED TOPPINGS:
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • Diced apples
  • Coconut sugar
  • Cinnamon and ground ginger
  • Granola
  • Coconut Whipped Cream

Directions:

  1. In a medium sized pot over medium heat, whisk together the oats, apple, chia seeds, cinnamon, ginger, salt, milk, maple syrup, and applesauce until combined.
  2. Cook over medium heat for about 9 to 15 minutes, stirring often. When the mixture thickens and the oats soften, it is ready.
