When looking for a quick and easy breakfast in the morning that’s packed with nutritional value, we almost always think of yogurt.

What you need for this Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Bowl:

  • Apples: The type of apple is completely up to you. Kat prefers something tart and Dev looks for something sweet. Meet in the middle and do one of each!
  • Cinnamon: Is it even a winter dish if cinnamon isn’t involved? Cinnamon adds such a home-y feel that’s literally comfort in every bite.
  • Nutmeg: If you’re not pairing cinnamon with nutmeg did you even use cinnamon? Pair the two for the perfect apple pie spice flavour.
  • Maple Syrup: The only liquid sweetener you need. Choose a dark maple syrup for the most robust flavour.
  • Water: Use in place of butter or oil for sauteeing the apples.
  • Yogurt: Make sure you choose dairy free! There are a lot of delicious plant-based yogurt options to choose from. Kat prefers soy-based, but there are also almond, coconut and other nut-based options available.
  • Nuts: Adds the perfect crunch to the top. Add your favourite nut or a medley of chopped nuts. We typically opt for pecans!
