Baked apple and cinnamon oats is a delicious and easy 30 minute breakfast. This healthy cooked porridge oats recipe is perfect as a weekend brunch too!
So folks I promised in my last breakfast recipe, the quinoa bircher muesli with apple and banana one that I’d bring you a hot healthy breakfast recipe next.
And here it is. A delicious tasty baked apple and cinnamon oats for two!
Because you love my sugar free cinnamon apple crumble for dessert, I thought “how about a variation of it for breakfast”?
I mean let’s face it. What’s wrong with eating a healthy dessert for breakfast?
That’s where the inspiration for this recipe came from.
It doesn’t take long to get this dish on the table either.
You can prep this amazing weekend breakfast / brunch in just 10 minutes. Then it only takes 20 minutes cook!
Enjoy the delicious cinnamon and apple aromas filling your kitchen and house as it bakes.
It’s just perfect for a cold winters day!
I’ve added just the minimal amount of sweetner to this recipe. Only two tablespoons of honey.
Depending on your own personal preference or how sweet you like this breakfast, I suggest adding extra honey / sweetner after it’s baked.
It’s best served immediately too.
I like to pour over a little cold milk whilst the baked apple and cinnamon oats is still hot. That helps to warm the milk up which I think makes this breakfast even more delicious, plus giving you a good dose of healthy calcium!
There is quite a lot of truth in the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”!
Why This Baked Apple and Cinnamon Oats Is Good For You
- Apples are rich in dietary fibre.
- They’re linked to a lower risk of diabetes. Studies have shown that the fructose consumed from an apple has very little effect on blood sugar levels.
- One medium apple contains on average 95 calories, 25 grams of carbohydrates and 14% of your recommended daily amount of vitamin C.
- Apples contain large amounts of water and fiber which makes them really filling. You’re likely to be satisfied after eating just one. Meaning you’re less likely to be tempted to eat other unhealthier foods!
