Recipe: A Delicious Apple Oatmeal

Recipe: A Delicious Apple Oatmeal

Winter has well and truly arrived on the Murray River in South Australia. At sunrise, mist covers the river valley and the wind-less mornings make for the most beautiful sunrise pictures!

The days (although chilly) have been beautifully sunny which is quite typical during winter in the Riverland. It makes getting out of bed for outdoor adventures just a little bit easier.

A Warming breakfast recipe

Something else that helps us get out of bed is a warm and delicious breakfast and earlier this year we discovered baked oatmeal!

Murray River Trails Apple Oatmeal

This breakfast is warming, filling and the energy from the oats and apples keeps us going until morning tea.

It's a very simple recipe and one where substitutions can be easily made.

We make it with apple, but you could use pears or bananas.

Instead of using plain oats, we used a fruit and nut muesli mix, which has nuts, seeds and juicy dried fruit already mixed through.

If you like, you could sprinkle almonds or walnuts on top or throughout the oatmeal for some extra crunch and protein.

We recently shared a picture of our delicious oatmeal on Instagram and so many of you were asking for the recipe, so here it is! Bon Appetit!
