Well the mornings are starting to get cooler...fall is in the air. When that happens I like to add a bit of warmth to my breakfast. This recipe did the trick for me. I actually really enjoyed the contrast of warm apples and cool yogurt. Yum!
I used local organic apples here. If you read my blog, you know I am all about taking my little girl to pick your own fruit places and we did it again. We went to the local organic farm that I am blessed to have a few minutes away and picked apples. What a difference in taste when you are eating them right off the tree. So even if you are not going apple picking (which you totally should), I would highly suggest you make sure you get local apples. When you go to the grocery store we see apples from all over the place, including New Zealand. Why would we want to buy apples all the way from New Zealand when they are growing in our backyard?? I know many farms dont have as many apples as usual this year due to a late frost so get out there and get them fast.
10 Minute Breakfast
1 apple, diced
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp pure maple syrup #2 or 3
Pinch of cinnamon
2-3 heaping spoonfuls of sheep’s milk yogurt or any plain yogurt (add some maple syrup or honey if needed)
1 tbsp hemp seeds (optional)
1 tbsp gogi berries (optional)
2 tbsp granola - I used Living Intentions
Heat pan to medium/high heat. Add coconut oil and chopped apples. Sauté for 5 minutes or so until soft. Please keep an eye on your pan to ensure that it doesn't get to hot. Adjust temperature as needed. Add maple syrup and let it reduce for 1 minute and add cinnamon.
Add yogurt to a bowl. Top with warm apples, hemp seeds, gogi berries and granola.
