Apple and cranberry super breakfast

A delicious slice of apple and cranberry super breakfast delight, topped with yogurt.

I think you have gathered by now that I do enjoy anything that has got apples in, in this case, an appetizing apple and cranberry breakfast. 😊

If you ask me, there are two types of breakfast.

There is the weekend breakfast which is super great and mainly the one that we have and take some time to prepare. In my household we occasionally take it easy or pretty lazy(whenever possible) having a really late breakfast which often turns into an early lunch. That’s what weekends are for if we can afford or enjoy the luxury of an easy and laid back one.

And of course… there is the antagonistic version of that lazy, laid back breakfast, when we hardly find time to prepare a proper breakfast mainly during week time and not only, since I find myself more and more that many weekends nowadays are falling into the same sort of rush, rush, rush pattern.

Not all weekends offer us a lot of time especially for those parents like ourselves with young children when even weekend free-time it’s an utter luxury. I’m not complaining here by the way, I’m just saying 😂

This fuss-free breakfast recipe with apples, oats and cranberries is super quick, it is very yummy and it looks pretty complicated but in reality it is the easiest thing to prep.  I’m calling it a breakfast but realistically could easily be a healthy dessert if you wanted it to be or a snack that requires no prior preps but literally just mixing all those ingredients up and the result is this very simple yet sophisticated looking one.

This apple dessert/breakfast or snack, whatever you want to call it, is super nutritious but also super healthy and quick to get ready for your loved ones including the self 😜

I make it for breakfast mainly because I want to come out of that routine that I easily fall into of eating cereals for breakfast or some unhealthy snack at work. It’s better to go for something home prepared, as healthy as this, for a snack in the afternoon than a market ‘healthy’ bar (don’t get me wrong, I still strongly believe that many of the so-called ‘healthy’ snacks are still packed with either fat, salt and/or sugar).

This is great for diversity and can easily be made in the skillet if you happen to have one; I just love skillets, they’re totally fuss free, but don’t worry if no skillet is available, any oven proof dish will do.

I won’t go any further on this because I find there is no need for too many words and intro when it comes to fruit treats so, here you have this super quick recipe. 👌 👇

Recipe Notes

Serve cold or warm with a dollop of ice cream, clotted cream or a good natural Greek style yoghurt.

Of course you can replace the apples with a fruit that you love and this can be banana, apricots, pears, cherries or nectarines.

A tower of apple and cranberry slices of breakfast delight.

In terms of all the optional ingredients that I have mentioned in the ingredients list you can choose mix and match which ever you like but I would recommend if you use rum not to use the desiccated coconut or vanilla but just a tiny amount of cinnamon with a choice of apples or bananas not otherwise.

I do love a rum flavour and this could be because my mum used to use it quite a bit in her desserts especially pancakes or apple ones.
