|Caramel Apple Breakfast Pizzas|
This Post is Sponsored by the Quaker Oats Company but all opinions are my own
I was so thrilled to see all of your gorgeous pictures of my Chocolate Chip Crumble Muffins , which was the first of FOUR recipes I'm creating with Quaker oats!
My inspiration for today's recipe came from the unbelievably delicious apples I've been enjoying all Autumn. Honeycrisps, pink lady and tart green apples are my personal go-to faves, but I also recommend checking out your local varietals!
As much as I adore eating apples raw with ALL the crunch factor, I also love warm, gooey sautéed apples. I've especially been craving them as we approach the chilliest months of the year. Sautéed apples are a wonderful topping for a cozy bowl of oatmeal, but I wanted to try something a little different with this recipe. Since pizza happens to be my all-time fave food (and often front of mind), I thought...why not make a breakfast "pizza"?! Or mini "pizzas," to be exact :).
Portable, satisfying and oh-so-delicious, these "pizzas" had my heart immediately. And with 1/2 cup serving of oats per "pizza," this breakfast is a good source of important nutrients such as vitamin B1, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese. They're also a good source of fiber, which is a GREAT way to help start the day, ya know?!
This would be such a fun recipe to make for a holiday morning! You can make the "pizzas" in advance, then heat them up the morning of with your nut butter of choice and caramelized apples. If you happen to have apples leftover, you can save them for that go-to bowl of oats, or add them to a smoothie, or use as a yogurt topping!
