Caramelized apple oatmeal

I have been making oatmeal for the longest I can remember and I think this caramelized apple oatmeal is by far one of my favorite versions.

Oatmeal is one of my kids favorite snacks. They tend to have it either for breakfast of after school so that means I like to increase the protein content even more by sometimes adding chopped nuts as well as some protein powder.

Apples are very indicative of the fall season so I love using them when ever possible. I always get them organic and for this recipe, I didn’t even peel the apples. I like doing that to make sure I keep all the fiber, vitamins and minerals that comes in the skin. Plus my kids really don’t mind.

Fall season is one of my favorite times of the year. Not only because the weather is just perfect but because of Halloween.

I am still debating what recipes to come up with for Halloween. I would like to keep desserts sort of on the healthier side so lets see how creative I can get.

For this caramelized apple oatmeal I used Silk Unsweetened Soy Milk. I always use unsweetened varieties so that I can control the sweetness plus I really don’t like tasting any sweetness when having a plane glass of it.

Anyways, I hope you like this super easy caramelized apple oatmeal recipe. Add any nuts or other fruit of your choice. Peaches and pears would also work very well.

Enjoy!

  1. This sounds wonderful. I love lentil soup and have quite a stockpile of recipes. It’s such a delicious and nourishing soup. I’ve just received a dutch oven and have been searching for things to cook in it. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. The soup looks really comforting and flavourful. I love that you have topped the soup with peanuts and cilantro…which make them double yum!

  3. I LOVE lentil soup!! And I happen to have a big bag of red lentils just hanging around…definitely making this. It has such great spices!

  4. I love lentil soup especially we Indians have them almost everyday with rice or chapatti. I have never tried it with carrots though. Your soup looks awesome and I would love to try your recipe.

  5. Oh yummy! I am pinning this for sure.

  6. This looks delicious, just wondering if you soak the beans overnight?

  7. Does it matter if I use a different lentil? I only have chana Dahl and brown lentils.
    Thank you!

  8. Hi Miryam … First time reading your blog and so happy to discover it … healthy / tasty food is my jam :) Just this winter I started making a red lentil coconut milk soup and it quickly became our favorite. Recipe is so similar but also different. Mine uses Garam Masla, cinnamon, and it calls for curry powder but we omit that. Biggest difference is mine includes 7 – 8 cups of vegetable or chicken stock (the veg version is the best). Totally agree with you about the red lentils, definitely smaller than other lentils and much quicker cooking; I get organic which also increases their cost but they are so tasty it doesn’t mater :) We top ours with a dollop (or super big scoop) of non-fat Greek yogurt to up the decadent mouth feel and the protein.

    • That is so awesome. This lentil soup has become one of my ultimate favorite ones making it at least twice a month. I need to make more next time so that I can just freeze it and have it on the go :-) Thanks for stopping by.
