Honeyed Breakfast Apple Crisp

This low sugar delight is one of my absolute favorite breakfasts or desserts. Chock full of fiber and dense nutrition, we use honey as a light sweetener. While spicy ginger and cinnamon warm the digestive system, making this a perfect way to start the day.


Ingredients 

  • 3-4 peeled and sliced Granny Smith Apples
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 2 Tbls Water
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 3 Tbls Butter
  • 1-2 Tbls Honey

Serves 4


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel and thinly slice apples.
  3. Toss with ground cinnamon and ginger and place in a buttered baking dish (8x12in).
  4. Pour the 2 Tbls water over the top.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine butter and oats with fingers until it resembles a crumbly mixture. Spread over apple mixture.
  6. Drizzle honey over the top of the oat mixture.
  7. Bake for 35-45 minutes until apples are tender and oats are crisped up.
  8. Serve warm. Eat plain or top with almond milk or plain yogurt.

Seeded Spicy Oatmeal

This nourishing breakfast is a great way to start the day! I like making a big batch every Sunday and then it’s quick to reheat in the morning before I’m off to work.  The warming spices included in this recipe tonify the ‘Spleen and Stomach’ of Chinese medicine bringing the digestive system into greater alignment. 


Ingredients

  • 1 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats
  • 1 ½ cups of water
  • 1 ½ cups of non-dairy milk (I like unsweetened Hemp or Coconut)
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 t ginger

**Serves 3-4

Garnish

  • Banana
  • Dates
  • Hemp Milk
  • Your Favorite Seeds (I like Hemp and Flax)
  • Maple Syrup
  • or whatever you like…

Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients in a saucepan.

  2. Set to low heat and cook 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on this so that it doesn’t boil over and be sure to stir so the oats don’t stick to the bottom of the pan and burn.

  3. Once your porridge reaches the desired consistency, remove from heat.

  4. In your bowl, garnish as desired.

My favorite garnish is a whole sliced banana, 2 chopped dates, 1 Tablespoon each of hemp and flax seeds, a splash of milk and just enough maple syrup to make it all worthwhile! I also up the amount of cinnamon and ginger so it’s nice and spicy!
