We have lately been having hearty breakfasts in the morning in order to build up our immune systems. In the mornings I usually wake up in the morning and prepare my hubby’s lunch, but knowing that we both like oatmeal and do not usually have the time to prepare it, I decided that after stumbling across a recipe on Foodbuzz, that it was an excuse not to be able to have a delicious and healthy breakfast.
- Chufa milk
- Coconut milk
2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
4 Cups almond milk
1/2 Teaspoon Almond Extract
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Sliced Almonds
1/2 Cup Dried Cherries
1 cup stewed apples
Start by pre-heating your oven to 350 degrees. Peel and core 8 Gala apples and semi-cover with water. Add 2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp nutmeg. Boil for 20 minutes.
Mix the almond extract with your milk. Then sprinkle the oatmeal in a greased glass casserole dish and pour the milk on top. Next, layer the remaining ingredients on top of the oatmeal.
Next, CAREFULLY add the casserole to the oven. It will be a little liquidy until the oatmeal soaks up the milk. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes, scoop and serve!
