Servings: 2


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or other milk of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 large apple
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pecans or walnuts, for serving
  • Almond or pecan butter, for serving


  • Add the oats, milk, chia seeds, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small saucepan. Cut the apple in half and set one half aside. Peel and shred the other half and stir in with the oats.
  • Bring the oats to a boil, then reduce heat to low-medium heat and simmer until thick and creamy, about 5 minutes.
  • Transfer to 2 bowls and top with the remaining apple (diced) and other desired toppings.


This oatmeal is lightly sweetened with apples. If you want sweeter oats, add maple syrup to taste. I also recommend a sweet variety of apple, such as gala or honey crisp.
