A bowl of raw oatmeal, one-half of a Jazz or Granny Smith apple, an egg, one-third of a cup of unsweetened almond milk, a quarter of a teaspoon of baking powder, half a teaspoon of turmeric, a teaspoon of cinnamon, and a drizzle of raw honey or raw cane sugar.
To start, set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Set a skillet on medium-high heat and spray it with coconut oil. Chop up the apple and add it to the skillet when it gets hot. Cook the apple until it gets brown but make sure it does not stick and burn. Mix the rest of the ingredients and add the apple to it once it is done. Mix together and pour back into the skillet and bake it for about 15 minutes.
The oatmeal and apple provide complex carbohydrates for sustained energy, while the egg adds protein and healthy fats. The almond milk and spices give the bowl a creamy and flavorful base, and the raw honey or sugar adds a touch of sweetness. This recipe is quick and easy to make, and it is sure to keep you satisfied and nourished throughout the morning.

( * ) – Optional ingredient
Set oven to 350F.
Spray a cast iron skillet with coconut oil and set it on medium-high heat.
Chop up half of the apple and add to the skillet once it is hot. Saute the apple until the edges turn brown, which should take about 6 to 8 minutes. Stir with a spatula to ensure the apple does not stick to the skillet.
While the apple is cooking, mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl. If you find the batter is too thick and dry, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of almond milk.
Add the sauteed apples to the mixture and stir. Then add the entire mixture back to the skillet.
Bake in the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, or until it is golden brown. Be careful not to overcook as it can quickly dry out.
Serve and enjoy immediately.
