Before I got pregnant I wasn’t much of a breakfast person. It was just a meal I knew I needed to have before I could go about my day. Now I love breakfast for any meal of the day: breakfast burritos, omelettes, scrambles, French toast, waffles, pancakes, anything! Unfortunately, eating breakfast out is a little tough when I can’t eat dairy, so I’ve been making great breakfasts at home! May I present to you….Apple Pie Oatmeal. Classic American dessert meets classic American breakfast!
In a microwave safe bowl, combine the following:
•1/2 cup old fashioned oats
•1 cup unsweetened almond milk
•1 Tbsp dried cranberries
•1/4 of an apple, chopped
•1 Tbsp packed brown sugar (or any other sweetener)
•1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon (not pictured)
Stir it all together and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir well and microwave 1 more minute. Make sure you keep a close eye on it, oatmeal loves to bubble over the sides if the bowl! This could also be made on the stove, but being a new mom I am all about time saving dishes!
Be careful when you take the bowl out of the microwave, as the bowl and oatmeal will be very hot! Allow to cool slightly (and it will thicken as it cools) before enjoying! I like to add a drizzle of honey over the top for a little added sweetness!
