Deluxe Apple Pie Oatmeal Porridge (Vegan and Gluten-Free)

The Crazy Carrot Cake Oatmeal Porridge (Vegan and Gluten-Free) was such a hit that I thought I would add in some more tarted-up porridges.  Today you will find a recipe for Deluxe Apple Pie Oatmeal Porridge-- the "deluxe" reference alludes to the inclusion of more than 5 ingredients (I don't think any recipe should contain more than 5 ingredients in this stressful world we live in, but, sometimes, alas, more is tastier...)  This could be your company's-here breakfast.  This could also be adapted to the crockpot with very little hassle.  Be sure to use the best organic ingredients as much as you are able.





1 C. Steel Cut Oats (use a GF brand)
1 T. Chia Seed
3 Apples, cored and chopped (skin on)
1/2 tsp. Salt (or to taste)
2 T. Cinnamon
1 small nob fresh Ginger, peeled and chopped fine (or grated)
6-8 Dates, no pits
1/2 C. Thompson's Raisins
Splash of Apple Cider Vinegar (or unsweetened Apple Juice)
2-3 C. Water

  • Sweetener (I used Raw Honey)
  • Almond Milk
  • MaraNatha Raw Almond Butter

Method:
  1. In a large pot combine Oats, Chia Seed, Apples, Salt, Cinnamon, Ginger, Dates, Raisins, Apple Cider Vinegar, and Water.  Bring to boil on high heat
  2. When porridge boils, lower heat to lowest setting and put lid on the pot.
  3. Check pot a couple of times over next 15-25 minutes.  Porridge will be ready when, if stirred, most of moisture has turned into a gooey gel and the oats are soft.
  4. Transfer porridge to individual bowls.  Swoosh some sweetener and about a teaspoon (or to taste) of Almond Butter into each bowl and add the Almond Milk.
  5. Enjoy!
