Breakfast is the most important meal of the day but when it comes to it, how often do you take the time to make something truly enjoyable? Introducing: Roasted Ambrosia Apple Breakfast Bowls. Combining the comfort food appeal of a baked apple pie with a healthier, whole-grain topping and yogurt base makes for a welcome reprieve from the standard piece of toast or whole-bran cereal we are used to. And thanks to Kylie Mitchell, author and creator of Imma Eat That, you can now enjoy this exotic breakfast dish from the comfort of your own home…
Pre-heat the oven to 350F, cut each apple in half and scoop out some of the flesh to make them into small bowls. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in the centre of the oven for 45 minutes.
While the apples are baking, combine the oats, oat flour, chopped almonds, brown sugar, butter, cinamon, vanilla and salt. Work until a crumble forms in the bowl. Divide the crumble mixture among the baked apples and return to the oven for 15 minutes
Once baked, divide the greek yoghurt between 4 bowls. Top with a warm apple half and pistachios.
Tip: For an extra hit of sweetness drizzle a tbsp of syrup over the apples and add a sprinkle of extra cinnamon.
