Apple Pie Spiced Oatmeal

Apple Pie Spiced Oatmeal

Im an absolute sucker for all things apple pie. It’s already in my candles and my hand soap, might as well go in my oats, too. Logical. This apple pie spiced oatmeal is such a quick and fun way to feel extra fall in the morning! I made my own spice mix, but you could also buy actual apple pie spice and put it on everything.

You can use any kind of oat or grain for this recipe. I love steel cut oats because they keep me fuller so much longer than rolled oats. One of my biggest struggles with being (mostly) vegan is how hungry I am! I’ve always had a super fast metabolism, so now I have to be very conscious about including healthy fats in my diet. Hence, peanut butter drizzle! Its not just for the aesthetic!

The best part of this recipe is the apples. They are coated in a spiced syrup that is so so easy to make. I use brown sugar because it takes on a flavor similar to caramel (YAS FALL FLAVOR), but if you wanted to make this naturally sweetened you could substitute the same amount of maple syrup. By starting with vegan butter, adding the apples and then finally adding the sugar with the spices, it creates a caramel that not only provides a sauce, but develops the flavor of the apple pie spices. A squeeze of lemon then balances the sweet, warm spices, just like it does in everyones favorite apple pie.
