Apple Pie Oatmeal
- 1⁄3 cup gluten-free rolled oats
- 1 medium Gala apple, peeled, cored, and chopped into 1-inch pieces
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon, plus more for serving
- 1⁄4 tsp ground ginger

- 1 tbsp hemp seeds, for serving

- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the oats, apple, chia seeds, applesauce, almond milk, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Whisk well to combine. Bring the mixture to a low boil over medium heat. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring often.
- When the mixture has thickened and the liquid has been absorbed, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla and maple syrup to taste.
- Pour the oatmeal into a bowl and top it with chopped walnuts, hemp seeds, a pinch of cinnamon, a pinch of shredded coconut, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.
