Pumpkin Protein Oatmeal with Cinnamon Apples
Ingredients for Oatmeal:
1/3 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup water or almond milk
1 Tbs chia seeds
1/4 c pumpkin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbs Greek yogurt
Ingredients for Cinnamon Apples:
1 Honeycrisp apple, cut into bite sized chunks
1 Tbs coconut oil
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Add rolled oats and liquid into a small pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Add chia seeds, pumpkin and cinnamon and stir. At this point I usually add some more almond milk (it depends on how thick you want it). Let everything cook on low for about 5-7 minutes. When the oatmeal is almost done, stir in the spoonful of yogurt. Add to a bowl and top with apple topping (recipe below). You can also add other toppings such as almond butter, shredded coconut, nuts, etc.
Cinnamon Apple Instructions:
Heat coconut oil in a pan on medium heat. Add chopped apples and cinnamon and stir until everything is coated. Put a lid on the pan and let the apples cook. Stir occasionally. Apples are done when they are soft. It should take about 10 minutes.
