Clean Eating Apple Pie Oatmeal

What if I told you that you could have apple pie for breakfast, no sugar, no guilt? That's exactly what I do most mornings, on one form or another! So simple, you can make this up in advance for your entire week, have it all ready to go for those busy rushed mornings!  

I like to make my steel cut oats up in advance in the slow cooker, 6 generous cups of water to 1 1/2 cup steel cut oats cooked on low for about 8 hours. Once they are cooled, I portion them out into containers, 6 servings. 

You then have your oats to do with what you wish! You can also use raw, old-fashioned oatmeal for this recipe if you prefer. 


(Makes 1 serving)


  • 1/2 cup uncooked, raw old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup chopped apples (approximately 1 small apple)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • Honey  or Pure maple syrup to taste
  • 1/2 c. Cottage Cheese


  1. Combine all ingredients the night before. Enjoy in the morning cold or warm - your choice!
  2. Optional ingredients or variations of this meal are as follows:  *Caramel apple pie (add in caramel extract) *PB and banana soaked oats (in place of the apple, use a banana and 1T PB, omit the allspice) *Some prefer Plain Greek Yogurt in place of the cottage cheese for any of these variations, or you could use half cottage cheese, half yogurt! Be creative, the options are endless!
Note: You can double the spices if you like a strong flavor. Also, the syrup or honey really makes this dish. It’s what brings out the full apple pie flavor. however, you don’t need a lot if your apples are sweet.
