Okay, so it’s not really apple pie but it reminds me of the apple pie from McDonald’s. Of course this one is much better for you and has about 6 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein!
All you need to do is put two recipes together; The “crust” is my apple cinnamon oatmeal breakfast square (minus apples, plus a sprinkle of coconut flakes) and the apples is a combination of apple crisp recipes I found online.
All you have to do is first make the breakfast square and make it in a round pan instead of a square to get slices. Then you make the “faux” apple crisp by following the recipe below!
“Faux” Baked Apple Crisp Ingredients:
3 Medium Granny Smith Apples, Chopped
1/2 Tbsp Butter, melted
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1 Tbsp Each of Brown Sugar and Flour
1/4 Cup of Oats
1 tsp each of Cinnamon, Honey & Maple Syrup (optional)
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees. Place apples, butter, brown sugar, vanilla, honey, and maple syrup into a bowl and mix well, put aside. In another bowl mix oats, cinnamon and flour and then mix this into the apple mixture.
Once everything is well combined, spread ingredients evenly onto a non-stick cookie sheet and place in the oven for about 30-40 minutes, depending on your oven. Stir the mixture every 15 minutes to ensure no burning occurs.
Once the oats start to turn a golden brown, remove apple crisp from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes. Once cooled, lace apple crisp on top of round oatmeal breakfast square. Cut into slices and there you have it, healthy apple pie for breakfast! Makes four delicious servings that are around 220 calories a slice. Depending on the ingredients you use, of course.
You can even have this “apple pie” as a dessert by adding some vanilla ice cream! That sounds like a good idea right now…time to get some ice cream. Enjoy!
