Have dessert for breakfast with this low-calorie, low-fat crisp you can easily make in advance.
January is the time of new beginnings and New Year’s resolutions, and I always find myself noticing way too many people who are stressing themselves unnecessarily by trying to eat bland and tasteless food that is supposed to be good for them. Healthy eating shouldn’t be a resolution, or a plan you need to force yourself to follow. It should be a part of who you are without having to think too hard about it.
This Healthy Apple Pie Breakfast Crisp is one of my favourite morning treats, and guess what? It’s both delicious and good for you.
With only 244 calories and 7 grams of fat, it’s just what you need to balance your goal of eating healthier and having fun. Packed with carbs, this is the kind of breakfast that will wake you up and get you going in no time.
You can easily make it in advance and keep a few bowls stored in the fridge for up to three days to make your mornings even less stressful. Or, you can always bring it with you to work or school for lunch or a quick snack.
Healthy Apple Pie Breakfast Crisp
- 40 g rolled oats
- 35 g oat flour
- 20 g dark brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 15 g coconut oil, melted
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 medium apples, finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
In a medium bowl, mix together oats, oat flour, sugar, cinnamon and melted coconut oil. Stir well and set aside.
To make the filling, whisk together the sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch. Add chopped apples and gently stir until evenly coated. Microwave the mixture for about 2 to 3 minutes, until it starts to bubble. Then transfer the mixture to 3 ramekins.
Sprinkle the topping evenly over the filling. Transfer the ramekins into the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes until the topping is a deep golden brown.
Transfer to a wire rack and let it cool for about 15 minutes. Serve while still warm.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave before serving.
