Baked apple breakfast pot

Somewhere between porridge and apple crumble; this recipe is warming, satisfying and nutritious, while still being delicious enough for you to feel as though you’re eating dessert for breakfast….

Ingredients:
  • 1 large apple (chopped. Keep the skin on for extra fibre and nutrients!)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1 tbsp flax
  •  Pinch of baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • vanilla extract
  • A small amount of hot water or non-dairy milk
  • *Optional: maple syrup, coconut sugar, molasses, lucuma powder, date syrup or a sweetener of your choice
How To:
  • Pre-heat oven to 190C
  • Add the apple, nearly all of the oats, flax, baking soda, cinnamon, mixed spice, coconut oil and vanilla to a small ramekin and mix well. *If you like a sweeter breakfast, add in something sweet that cooks well here (not honey though: In the Ayurvedic way of eating – which pays special attention to purity and healthy digestion – it is said honey becomes toxic when cooked), something like maple syrup, molasses, coconut sugar, date syrup or lucuma powder.
  • Once everything is combined, cover generously with either a milk of your choice or hot water, mix well again (add in any optional extras like raisins, berries, hemp seeds, nuts, coconut etc. here)
  • Sprinkle over the last remaining oats
  • Place in the oven and bake until you begin to smell what’s cooking and the top has slightly browned
  • Top with berries / nuts / honey / yogurt etc to complete your breakfast
  • Eat somewhere you can see and appreciate beautiful Autumn happening outside….
