Nutritious Stewed Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Recipe



I had 10 green apples sitting on my dining room table for the past month and finally decided to stew them into a lovely Christmas-y oatmeal topping. I’m a massive fan of oatmeal for breakfast because it’s so quick to make, it’s nutritious, and is so versatile. You can literally have your oatmeal however you like. I personally like to have oatmeal with some sweet fruit such as bananas or in this case stewed apples.



Ingredients


Stewed Apples

  • 1 green apple

  • 1 knob of butter (or oil)

  • Dash of cinnamon

  • 1 tbsp of brown sugar

  • Some water

Oatmeal

  • ½ cup oatmeal

  • 1 cup liquid (milk, non-diary milk or water or a combination of all)

  • Pinch of salt

Optional

  • Handful of nuts

  • Maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Peel and dice the apples into little cubes.

  2. Melt the knob of butter in a saucepan over low heat. Once melted, add diced apples into the pan.

  3. Cook the apples for 2 mins until browned. Add cinnamon, sugar and 3 tbsp of water. Leave to simmer.

  4. Continue adding water every time the water evaporates. Simmer for 10 minutes total.

  5. To cook the oatmeal, add 1 cup of liquid and salt in another saucepan and heat on medium heat.

  6. Once steaming, add ½ of oatmeal and simmer for 5 minutes or until desired texture.

  7. Serve the stewed apples on top of the oatmeal. Add nuts and maple syrup if desired.

  8. Enjoy!!!



Nutritional Value of Oatmeal

  • High in fibre = good for poop

  • High glycemic index = does not spike blood sugar

  • Medium level of protein per serving (5g per ½ cup of oatmeal)

  • Adding nuts to this meal would add some healthy fats and further increase the protein content.

  • Contains minerals and vitamins such as manganese, magnesium, iron, zinc, vitamin B1 and 5, making oatmeal super nutritious!
