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

 

Instructions:

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.
