Winter in Australia is generally sunny and warm, but it can also be miserably cold and wet. In any weather, you feel like something warm and comforting. This recipe is the best for winter cozy nights at home or whenever you feel like a delicious, yet healthy treat. The ingredients are so basic that you can whip it up in no time. The recipe is by my favourite blogger ‘Deliciously Ella’.
Ingredients (serves 4):
1 1/2 cup oats
1 cup almond meal
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 tbs coconut oil
2 tsp cinnamon
6 red apples, peeled, cored and cut in cubes
1 cup strawberries or blueberies
Preheat oven to 180C. Combine the oats and the almond meal in a mixing bowl. Place the maple syrup, coconut oil and one tsp of cinnamon in a saucepan and heat until the coconut oil has melted and everything has mixed together. Pour this mixture over the oats and almond mixture and stir well until all the dry ingredients are coated. Place the apple into a saucepan, add some boiling water to just cover the bottom of the pan. Add one tsp of cinnamon, put the lid on and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Once the apple cubes are soft transfer them into a baking dish, add strawberries or blueberries and layer the oats and almond mixture above it. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the topping is browned. Enjoy!
