A Confession – Baked Apple pie oatmeal

I have a confession, I have eaten pie for breakfast once or twice. Ok- a lot more then once or twice. I rise early before the rest of the house and have just sliced myself a piece of pumpkin, apple or berry and pop it cold right into my mouth. Yup, I am a pie pilfer. Can you pilfer a pie you already own… well yes, if your husband goes to cut a slice later that day and notices a chunk already missing. There are 3 obvious ways to resolve this issue:

  • Stop eating pie…LOL…
  • get rid of those who notice – yeah cannot do that
  • Make More pies – hum that could work …but I am told by “some people” that this is “not healthy”

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.

James 5:16

So how can we treat ourselves to luxury without sneaking into the fridge with the pie lifter? Well, technically that part is up to you …but we can switch it up a bit and make it healthy!

Enter Apple Pie bake oatmeal. It is The perfect compromise – serve it warm for dessert with fresh coconut whipped cream like an apple crisp or snitch it cold from fridge with a cup of coffee. With Flax, oats, fresh fruit- it’s healthier then crisp or pie but still with all the luxury. I have even removed the sugars and made it during our Daniel fast -not quiet as sweet but still entirely delicious. This recipe also works well with other fruit too- Berries, rhubarb and more!

Hooray – no more pie pilfering
