Author Rachel Conners


  • cup rolled oats gluten free if necessary
  • 1 small apple peeled and diced into bite-sized pieces
  • cup 100% pure apple juice
  • cup non-dairy milk I used almond
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or add to taste

For the toppings


  1. In a small saucepan, combine oats, diced apples, apple juice, almond milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Simmer until liquid has absorbed into the oats, stirring frequently to prevent burning, for about 8-10 minutes. Add maple syrup to taste.
  2. Meanwhile, in a separate small saucepan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the diced apple chunks and coconut sugar. Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has melted and formed a caramel-like sauce on the apples. Stir in the pecans.
  3. Serve the oatmeal immediately, topped with the caramelized apples. Enjoy!
