Recently we made an apple crumble overnight oats recipe, and it convinced us that apple crumble is the perfect winter breakfast. It's warming and indulgent, but when made with the right ingredients, can also be a nutritionally balanced start to the day. So, this week we've given a classic apple crumble dessert a healthy, protein-packed twist for you to enjoy when you have a little extra time in the morning.
The only problem? You'll never want to eat a boring bowl of porridge again!
Preheat your oven to 180c.
Chop your apple into small chunks and place in a saucepan with the cinnamon, ginger, salt, sweetener (if using) and a couple of tbsp's water so they don't stick. Put the pan on a medium heat and stir regularly for about 5-10 minutes.
Whilst this is cooking, simply stir together the flax, oats, vanilla protein, oat milk maple syrup and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
When your apples have softened, just place them in a small ramekin or oven proof dish and add your oat topping. Pop into the oven for 10 minutes, or until the top has turned golden brown and crisp.
Add a spoon of yoghurt and fresh fruit before digging in.
