Say hello to your new favourite Fall breakfast. Actually, it’s so good you’ll want to enjoy this nourishing bowl of oatmeal year round. These extra cozy oats are made with carrot, chia seed and protein powder for extra nutrition and the cinnamon sautéed apples are the perfect way to top it all off.



For the Carrot Chia Oatmeal

For the Cinnamon Sautéed Apple

  • 1/2 tsp of coconut oil (optional, you can just use water if you like)
  • 1 apple of choice, chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of coconut sugar (optional, for a little extra special something)
  • water for sautéing


  1. To make the oatmeal, add all the oatmeal ingredients to a small pot and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently for 7-10 minutes until thick.
  2. To make the cinnamon sautéed apples, heat the coconut oil in a good non-stick pan over medium high heat (you can skip the oil and use water if you like!), then add the chopped apples, pinch of coconut sugar (if using) and cinnamon. After about a minute, add a couple tablespoons of water and continue cooking and stirring. As the water evaporates and the pan dries out, keeping adding more water, a few tablespoons at a time and continuing to cook. Repeat this process for 10-12 minutes until the apples are soft, browned, ooey, gooey and delicious.
  3. Scoop the cooked oats into a bowl, top with the sautéed apples and enjoy.
