- 2 apples peeled, cored, diced (about 2 cups). I used Fuji.
- 3.5 cups milk of choice water, apple juice, and apple cider also work well
- 2 cups quick oats
- 2 tbsp coconut oil dairy free butter also works
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp brown sugar coconut sugar also works
- pinch of salt
- dairy free caramel for drizzling
- chopped walnuts for garnish (optional)
Prepare the oats
Bring your milk (or liquid of choice) and a pinch of salt to a boil in a medium sized saucepan over medium low heat.
Once the liquid is boiling, stir in your oats. Boil them for about a minute and give them a stir.
Remove the pot from the heat, cover it, and let the oats rest for five minutes.
Prepare the apples
While your oats are resting, heat the oil (or dairy free butter) in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Add your apples and cinnamon to the skillet and cook them until they start to soften, about four minutes. Stir in your brown sugar, and continue cooking until the sugar has melted and the apples are soft. It should take another two or three minutes. Be sure to stir your apples occasionally so the apples are evenly coated with the sugar syrup.
Assemble your bowls
Stir your apples into the oatmeal gently. If you'd like you can leave some apples out to garnish the top of the oats with some chopped walnuts to make it pretty.
Layer your oats in a bowl, top with your apples and walnuts if you're garnishing, and give it a good drizzle of your dairy free caramel.
Serve warm and enjoy!
