During the week, I'm a to-go-breakfast girl. I prefer a few more minutes in my warm and cozy bed to a decent breakfast. Most days I'm fine with some bananas, toast or some over night oats. But nowadays, when the mornings are foggy and cold, I started to sacrifice some bedtime for a warm and comforting breakfast. And I loved it! Here is one of my favorite breakfasts: Oatmeal with baked apples, some pomegranate seeds drizzled with maple syrup. So good! It takes you a few minutes but the smell of cinnamon and warm apples will make you forget your cozy bed :) Here we go:
For the oatmeal:
- 1 cup steel cut oats (100 grs)
- 2 cups of almond milk (500 ml)
- a pinch of salt
For the apple compote:
- 2 medium apples
- a few tbsp water
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- Plus some pomegranate seeds and maple syrup to garnish.
First, cut (and peel if you want) the apples in fine slices. Cook the apples with the water, the cinnamon and the brown sugar until soft and tender (it takes just a couple of minutes). Set aside and cover with a lid. In a separate saucepan, cook the oatmeal. It should take approximately 10 minutes, stir regularly.
Serve the oatmeal with the hot apple-cinnamon topping and garnish with some pomegranate seeds and a good portion of maple syrup. Enjoy!!
