We had a delicious breakfast today.
I recently saw a recipe for Apple Pie Oatmeal on Oh She Glows and today seemed like a good day to try it.
Except the recipe calls for applesauce and when I pulled our applesauce jar out of the fridge I noticed it was a little green.
Not green like apples. Green like mold.
So, this is a modified recipe. No mold.
What I had:
- 2/3 cup oats
- 1 1/2 apple, peeled, cored, and diced
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
What I did:
Threw away our disgusting jar of moldy applesauce.
Peeled, cored and chopped apples.
Combined oats, apples, chia seeds, water, and cinnamon in a pot over medium heat. Covered.
Once bubbling, removed cover and whisked.
Cooked about 7-10 minutes. I forgot to watch how long. I cooked until it was a nice gloppy oatmeal-y texture.
Took the pot off the heat.
Stirred in brown sugar and vanilla, covered and let sit for 5-10 minutes, until G got out of the shower.
Served with a splash of vanilla soymilk.
Warm, sweet, slightly tart from the apples, satisfyingly mushy from the chia seeds and oats. Good stuff. Hearty! I’m ready to take on the day! And take out the trash!
