These Cinnamon Oats with Caramelized Apples SAVED my life the other day. Some mornings, I rush off to my 8:30 class without eating breakfast, so I’m usually ready for something substantial afterwards. I love whipping something up between classes if I don’t have too much work to do.
Enter creamy oatmeal made with a plant-based milk and apples caramelized with honey. It not only fills you up, but will satisfy your sweet tooth without being overly sweet.
While the oatmeal could be a stand alone meal, the luscious caramelized apples and crunchy nuts create a harmonious balance of flavors and textures that tie it all together.
The real MVP of this recipe was the caramelized apples. What made them special was the addition of honey and allowing the apples to soften before adding the butter. This created a tender apple with a sweet, smooth sauce that you can then use to roast the almonds.
