On the weekends, I tend to go all out when it comes to breakfast/brunch – think bacon, eggs, pancakes, fried chicken and waffles (don’t judge), fancy brunch spot concoctions, you know, the whole nine yards. But during the work week, I need something that is simple and quick to assemble, but without having to compromise my level of satisfaction, both in taste and quantity.
Oatmeal is my go-to and it’s super good for you! I love that it is extremely versatile and can be enjoyed cold or hot and sweet or savoury. Inspired by the cozy Fall weather, I prepared this Warm Apple Pumpkin Spiced Coconut Oatmeal and have been literally eating it several times weekly!
This oatmeal recipe only takes a few minutes to make, read further to see how!
What You Will Need (for one serving):
- 1/2 rolled oats
- 1/2 cup coconut milk or coconut creamer
- Splash of water
- Assorted nuts – I used chopped walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and almond slivers
- Hungry Buddha Coconut Chips in Pumpkin Spiced (seasonable and SO delicious)
- Pure Maple Syrup
- Half an apple, sliced or diced
Mix rolled oats with coconut milk and a splash of water in a microwave safe bowl / Microwave for 1 minute on high / Mix to desire consistency adding more water or milk if you find it too thick / combine toppings / Sprinkle on top / Add apples / Top with Pumpkin Spiced Coconut Chips / Drizzle with syrup and ENJOY!
Note: This can also be prepared over the stove if you want to swap out the microwave option!
