Can I prep this vegan apple cinnamon oatmeal ahead?
This easy vegan breakfast idea takes 10 minutes to prep and is really best served immediately, so we don’t really recommend prepping ahead; however, it is possible to make ahead and warm up.
When warming up you will likely want to add another splash of dairy free milk to the dish.
Alternatively, you could also pre-chop your apples so that was one less thing that you needed to do.
We do recommend that you toss with some lemon juice between storing in an air tight container in the fridge until ready to use. Doing this will ensure that your apples to not brown.
WHAT IS THE BEST TYPE OF APPLES TO USE FOR VEGAN APPLE OATMEAL?
Apples are one of the most crucial parts of the recipe. It’s the focus of the whole dish.
There are so many apple options to choose from when you are baking that sometimes it may feel a little overwhelming.
However, there’s no need to complicate things.
You want an apple that will hold it’s shape and not turn to mush when baking and is a good balance of sweet and tart.
Some great options would include:
- granny smith
- pink lady
DO I HAVE TO PEEL THE APPLES?
No, and we don’t recommend that you do. Apple peels are loaded with nutrients and there is no need to remove them for this recipe.
Is vegan apple cinnamon oatmeal healthy for you?
Yes! We are using fresh ingredients, healthy grains, and plant based milk. While we are using a natural sugar, be mindful that maple syrup is still sugar and adds that in there.
A healthier alternatively would be to saute the apples in water and blend dates with the milk and add then.
Can I use instant oats to make this vegan apple cinnamon oatmeal?
Yes! You will want to reduce the cook time on the oats to 2 1/2-3 minutes. Follow all the other instructions as directed.
