Stewed Apple Overnight Oats
Summer is definitely on its way but, in the mean time, this recipe has a delicious wintery-ness that will have you wanting to curl up in front of the fire! I absolutely love overnight soaked oats and this is a great way to spice up your breakfast (literally).
1/2 cup of ground flax
- Boil a pan of water (around 2 cups)
- De-core and slice the apples. I choose to do this into relatively big pieces as I like the puree to be slightly chunky and I leave the peel on too
- Place the apple, cinnamon and nutmeg into the boiling water. Allow it to boil again, then turn down the heat, cover with a lid and leave to simmer for around 15 minutes or until the apples are really soft
- Drain the water out of the pan into another bowl
- In order to make the apples into a sort of puree, you can use a hand processor and apply light pressure. If you are using a food processor, keep the setting really low so that you don't make it too smooth (unless thats your aim!). The apples are soft and will puree very quickly
- Leave the puree to cool
- Soak the oats in 1 cup of almond milk and stir in a little of the water from the drained apples. A few tablespoons will be enough, any more will make the oats runny
- Add the flax and around 2/3 of the sultanas to the oats and stir them in
- Soak the chia seeds in the remaining 1/2 cup of almond milk
- Once the apple has cooled, you can begin to make the delicious layers. I went with oats, apple, chia, oats and then more apple to finish
- Top with the remaining sultanas and then pop it in the fridge overnight, ready for breakfast!
