It’s time for a new breakfast recipe because – you know – there haven’t been 1000 of those on here lately. At all.
Why am I getting so creative with breakfast lately and not with my other meals? *shakes head* No idea. Breakfast has always been my favourite meal but lately it’s getting cray cray how much I love it.
Peeps, it’s still a long weekend here in Canada as we celebrate Canada Day (otherwise known as my birthday, but I stopped trying to compete with the country’s birthday a long time ago). As it fell on a Sunday this year, today is our day off work!
I had a great birthday yesterday and the fun is continuing today…and will continue this weekend too. I like to drag things out ;). However I will be back tomorrow with a round-up post of pictures from my trip to Seattle with my bestie this weekend! It was a rockin’ good time (here’s us in the car during a 1-hour border line-up!):
Just like with our Thanksgiving (which falls in October) we have our mid-year long weekend before yours (July 4th is a-comin’ soon though!) so we get over our excitement and get back into it and then you guys still have yours to look forward to! I just choose to suddenly become an honorary American as soon as Canada Day is over and the holiday is suddenly prolonged…good strategy, right?
It’s what makes living on the west coast so great – things like Christmas Day and New Year’s Day seem to last longer because the whole world has celebrated them by the time we get around to it. Weird how that works.
In the meantime, though, savour yet another breakfast recipe to add into your rotation…Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal…or BAPO? How about Baked Apple Pie Protein Oatmeal? BAPPO? (‘Cause you know there’s always protein in there if I can help it!).
(Serving suggestion: I break mine up and serve it with a couple of tablespoons of coconut milk creamer poured on top…super good!)
Eat up and enjoy…!
Anna’s Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal (BAPO!)
INGREDIENTS (serves 1):
1/3 cup oats
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or soy, rice, coconut or other milk of choice)
1/3 scoop vanilla protein powder (about 1.5 tbsp)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 apple, diced
2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1 egg white (2 tbsp)
1 pinch salt
Stevia if needed (I didn’t use any)
More milk for serving (optional)
1. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased baking dish.
2. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. Eat straight from the dish or serve as per my suggestion in the image above and below. Enjoy!
Note: You can microwave the cinnamon with the diced apple before combining it if you like your apple extra soft. Or just dice your apples extra small so they cook really well!
