Apple and Cranberry Super Breakfast
"This fuss-free breakfast recipe with apples, oats, and cranberries is super quick, it is very yummy, and, while it looks pretty complicated, it is really the easiest thing to prep. I’m calling it a breakfast but realistically it could easily be a healthy dessert if you wanted it to be or a snack that requires no prior prep. Literally just mix all those ingredients up and the result is this very simple yet sophisticated looking treat."
NotesServe cold or warm with a dollop of ice cream, clotted cream or a good natural Greek-style yogurt. Of course, you can replace the apples with a fruit that you love and this can be banana, apricots, pears, cherries or nectarines.
In terms of all the optional ingredients that I have mentioned in the ingredients list, you can choose mix and match whichever you like but I would recommend if you use rum not to use the desiccated coconut or vanilla but just a tiny amount of cinnamon with a choice of apples or bananas not otherwise. I do love a rum flavor and this could be because my mum always used it quite a bit in her desserts especially pancakes or the apple ones.
Preparation Time20 min
Cooking Time40 min
- 3 large apples (organic)
- 100 g cranberries (dried)
- 5 eggs (organic)
- 150 g oats (organic, rolled type)
- 5-7 tbsp cane sugar
- 3 tbsp goji berries
- 6 tbsp yoghurt
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1 knob butter (to grease the dish)
- 1 pinch sea salt
Preheat the oven at 180C and grease an approximately 10 inch skillet or any oven proof dish.
Peel and core the apples, wash and chop into small cubes.
Add the sugar and the cinnamon and set aside.
To the chopped apples add the cranberries, eggs slightly beaten, the rolled oats, the Goji berries, salt, yoghurt and the sunflower seeds.
Mix all pretty energetic until it gets all very well mixed.
Place the mixture into the prepared tray and bake for around 40 minutes at 180 C.
Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts or mix those into the actual mixture before baking.
