Now that I know how easy it is to make myself a big bowl of n’oatmeal, I’ve been eating it almost every morning! I love experimenting with different flavor combinations and since apple season is in full swing, I figured, why not make an apple cinnamon n’oatmeal? Warm cereal is so comforting on chilly mornings (or afternoons/evenings). My favorite part about eating this n’oatmeal is that there’s really no need for extra sweetener. The natural sweetness from the apple and the nut milk is enough. You can always add a little maple syrup for something more dessert-like. And yes, warm cereal is a perfectly acceptable dessert… or snack.
If you’ve never had n’oatmeal before, it’s basically oatmeal made without oats. I really think all of my n’oatmeal recipes taste just as good as the real thing. Actually, I think my recipes taste better. I just love my banana nut n’oatmeal and my cinnamon raisin n’oatmeal, so after you make this apple version, make sure to try the other two too!
- Add the pecans, flaxseed meal, and coconut flour to a medium saucepan and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, or until toasted.
- Next, add the milk, chopped apples, chia seeds and cinnamon and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add sweetener if needed, then serve.
