Alright. I jumped on the fall-themed recipe bandwagon. You will not see any pumpkin recipes on here as it’s not my thing. But I do love apples. Especially sweet, sour & tart granny smith apples. I typically enjoy an apple as an afternoon snack – it gives me a boost of energy. I wanted to try and incorporate it into breakfast.
You know what my all time favourite breakfast food is? Overnight oats. Hands down. There’s just something about reaching into the fridge to grab a bowl of already made breakfast porridge. It’s especially great after a good work out as I don’t always feel like making something after a good sweat session. And why not switch the grain up for some good old buckwheat? It’s also portable!
Overnight Apple Pie Buckwheat (makes 1 jar)
1 apple of your choice, cored & shredded
1/3 cup of buckwheat, soaked for 3-4 hours
3/4 cup of almond milk (or non-dairy beverage of choice)
1 tbsp of chia seeds
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
Drain & rinse the buckwheat. Add it along with all of the other ingredients to a food processor and pulse a few times. Pour the mixture in a bowl or jar and stash in the fridge overnight. It’ll be ready waiting for you in the morning =)
I chose not to add sweetener to this as the apple is enough for me, but maple syrup would go nicely. Caramel sauce and/or whipped cream could take this to the next level as a dessert. I chopped up a date and some pecans to go on top. Simple, yet delicious.
