Apple and cranberry super breakfast
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
- 3 large apples (organic)
- 100 g cranberries (dried)
- 5 eggs (organic)
- 150 g oats (organic, rolled type)
- 5-7 tbsp cane sugar
- 3 tbsp goji berries
- 6 tbsp yoghurt
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1 knob butter (to grease the dish)
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 50 g walnut (toasted and chopped)
- 1 tsp rum essence (optional)
- 2 tbsp coconut (optional, desiccated)
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder (optional)
- 1/4 tsp almond essence (optional)
Preheat the oven at 180C and grease an approximately 10 inch skillet or any oven proof dish.
Peel and core the apples, wash and chop into small cubes.
Add the sugar and the cinnamon and set aside.
To the chopped apples add the cranberries, eggs slightly beaten, the rolled oats, the Goji berries, salt, yoghurt and the sunflower seeds.
Mix all pretty energetic until it gets all very well mixed.
Place the mixture into the prepared tray and bake for around 40 minutes at 180 C.
Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts or mix those into the actual mixture before baking.
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.
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 always used it quite a bit in her desserts especially pancakes or the apple ones.
