It's getting freaking cold outside, which means it is time to switch to a warm and spiced breakfast.
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1cup walnuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds, and/or cashew pieces
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1.5 tsps cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup full fat, pastured buttermilk (I like the brand Kalona) or another cup coconut milk
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 large egg
- 3 Tbls grassfed/pastured butter
- 2 tsps vanilla extract
- 1 apple sliced thin
- 1 cup blueberries (I used frozen and organic)
1.) Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Rub coconut oil or butter onto baking dish.
2.) In a bowl, combine the oats, half of the nuts, the baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
3.) In another bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, the milk(s), egg, half of the butter, and the vanilla.
4.) Place a single layer of apple slices across the bottom of the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle about two-thirds of the berries on top. Cover all that with the oat mixture and then drizzle the milk mixture over the oats. Scatter the remaining berries and walnuts over the top.
5.) Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the top is golden and the oats are set. Let cool for a few minutes. Drizzle with the remaining melted butter and serve.
