Creamy dreamy apple and gingerbread oatmeal, perfect for dark and cold mornings. This super-simple breakfast combines oats with gingerbread spices and some sweetness from an apple and a dried fig. Healthy comfort food!
I prefer to cook my oats with milk instead of water, with makes the oatmeal so much more creamy and flavourful.
Apple & Gingerbread Oatmeal
1 apple, coarsely grated
1/2 cup (1 dl) rolled oats
1 cup (2 dl) milk of choice (I used oat)
1 big dried fig, chopped into tiny pieces
1/2 tsp gingerbread spice mix (store-bought mix of cinnamon, ginger, cloves and cardamom)
(optional: small pinch of salt)
1. Put all the ingredients in a small saucepan and cook for a few minutes until all the liquid is absorbed.
2. Top with some chopped walnuts if you like. Enjoy!
