These oats are just what you need on the gorgeous crisp morning! Prepared steel-cut oats according to package directions and added 1/2 of a Granny Smith apple (baked & mashed), 2 TBS Treehive Maple Syrup + Honey & a dash of cinnamon. Topped it all with my homemade & healthyish pecan crumble, hemp seeds, goji berries, crunchy apple slices, maple almond butter, and, what made it really awesome ~ a drizzle of Picnik butter creamer (no sugar, keto friendly). HOW TO for BAKED APPLE & PECAN CRUMBLE is below:
BAKED APPLE ~ Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a small pan with foil. Place 1 TBS of coconut oil & a dash of cinnamon on the pan & melt while oven is preheating. Cut apple in half & brush melted oil on all sides of apple. Place apple face down on pan. Bake for 15 minutes or more, until apple is mushy. Scoop out apple & add to oats.
PECAN CRUMBLE: 1 cup rolled oats, 1/4 chopped pecans, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 TBS coconut oil ~ Place dry ingredients in large bowl & combine. Add the coconut oil & use a fork to mash & mix until the coconut oil is evenly distributed. Put in a small baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn the mixture and return to the oven. This is also delicious in baked apples or pears. Cover & keep in the fridge for 2 weeks.
