Raw Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal
1 apple, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/4 cups raw, unhulled oat groats (soaked for 10-16 hours), divided
1 banana, sliced
4 dates, chopped
6 pecans and/or walnuts, chopped
1. Lightly pulse the chopped apple in a food processor or blender. If you prefer a smooth consistency, add water as necessary and puree. You may also need to add a little water if your apple is less than juicy.
2. Add cinnamon and 1 cup oats (keeping 1/4 cup aside for garnish). Continue to pulse. Your finished mixture should have some texture.
3. Divide mixture into two bowls, and garnish with remaining oats, banana, dates and nuts.
Walla! You can up the nutrients by topping your oatmeal with superfoods like chia seeds, goji berries, or raw cacao. Just know the more you add the less “apple pie” you’ll taste. The oatmeal and apple mixture will keep in the fridge for one day, but why wait?
