“I’m excited to start developing Fall inspired recipes whilst experiencing the season first hand!”

“Oh shut up, Arman. FALL. Stupid boy, it’s Autumn. You move to America and now you use American lingo.”

I really do have great friends back home. They are almost as complimentary as Niki.

So I’m really excited to be experiencing ‘Fall’ here but also be creating recipes while being in season. Around this time last year, I had gotten more into my recipe development and creation for the blog which in turn meant two things-

1. Focusing on catering to my audience (a majority being in the Northern Hemisphere)

2. Whipping out my slow cooker while ice creams were being sold out in supermarkets around Australia. 

While my friends may roll my eyes at me calling Autumn Fall, they certainly had no complaints when they came round for brunch- Something I really enjoyed doing in the colder months when outdoor patio brunching was more like punishment than enjoyment. 

Long term readers from back in the early days of the blog may remember me sharing various ‘themed’ brunches I threw- A pancake bar, an oatmeal and a French toast one. The themes ended there because we all came to the conclusion that as long as there was something warm and maple syrup was on the table- It was a winner.

Random Fact- The day before I had friends come over for the pancake brunch, I went over to mum’s place to steal her maple syrup. I asked Niki to check and she said she would put some on her toast. She was too lazy to remove the cap fully and it popped back into her face and covered her with maple syrup. It was awesome…Until I had to go and fork out $7 for my own jar.

KARMA. 

Anyway, one of the brunches I made this amazing baked French toast full of apples, butter and sugar. No surprises there, as it was a Paula Deen recipe. When I think of Autumn Fall, I think of those things- Apples, French toast and Paula Deen. Of course my first recipe had to feature all three of those things, minus Paula because she’s a goose. Instead, we’ll replace her with something similar- Oatmeal! Friends, I have a game changer recipe combines everyone’s favorite breakfast food (oatmeal) with a Fall favorite dessert (apple pie) and with a comforting breakfast (French toast)Apple Pie French Toast Oatmeal

This Apple Pie French Toast oatmeal is comforting, filling and tastes like dessert but is actually healthy for you! Naturally gluten free, it’s also packed full of protein thanks to the egg (or the Flax egg if you go the Vegan route!). It has the taste and texture of a classic French Toast bake thanks to the combination of ingredients and addition of a dash of coconut flour- Similar to my Cake batter oatmeal, it really gives it that added texture! It’s perfect to batch cook and freeze portions which simply need reheating and voila- A delicious comforting breakfast to start your mornings off! While it tastes best when made stovetop, it’s also been tested in a microwave and comes out perfect! 

Fun tip- This oatmeal actually tastes AMAZING cold too- Similar to a very thick pudding! Oh yeah- Check out the interior…Full of caramelised apple goodness. 

BOOM.

Ingredients

For the oatmeal

For the caramelized apple

Instructions

  • In a saucepan or microwave safe bowl, combine the rolled oats, sea salt, cinnamon,nutmeg, apple and milk of choice and simmer on medium until most of the liquid is absorbed. Once thick, add the large egg and mix very well until fully mixed in. If desired, add the granulated sweetener, protein powder and mix very well. Add the coconut flour and continue stirring until a very thick batter is formed. Remove from heat and pour into a bowl.
  • In a microwave safe bowl or in a small pan, heat the 1/4 apple with cinnamon and nutmeg and optional sweetener until caramelized. Remove from heat or microwave and top your oatmeal with it.

Notes

If batter is too thick, add extra dairy free milk to desired consistency- It's best to keep it quite thick to resemble a soft, French toast texture.
This can be batch made the night before and eaten hot/cold.
This can also be frozen- Simply thaw out and and reheat.

  1. And now I want apple pie stuffed French toast, maybe with some ricotta or goat cheese….mmm, cheese. Oops, sorry I side tracked myself. What can I say? It happens.

    Welcome to Fall. Soon anyway.

    P.S. At the farmers market today, there were peaches and apples on the same table. I went for the peaches because pretty soon I won’t be able to get them. You know me, I’m going to hang onto summer as long as possible. Then I’ll be dragged kicking and screaming into Fall.

  2. Bring on the fall foods! Actually, I’ve had pumpkin, apples, and caramel on the brain for at -least- a month now. So you can imagine that I busted out the happy dance when I saw yellow leaves on the trees the other day. I’d bust out another dance if you put a bowl of this in front of me. Pls & thx.

  3. The best fall food is squash. Especially when it is in pie form. Don’t knock it till you try it 😎 I also love the cinnamon and nutmeg combo. Classic. Paula Deen has not been too popular here in the States for her racist comments. I probably would scrape her off the toast and spread some jam on it instead.

  4. French toast? Not so much my thing. Apple Pie Oatmeal? Why, yes, we’re talking now. Is Paula Deen jealous she didn’t invent this yet??
    As for foods – and yes, I consider this a breakfast food – that I associate with autumn: hokkaido/kabocha squash. No second thoughts needed.

  5. I’ve never seen and oatmeal recipe with egg in it. Interesting! I love apple pie so I love this oatmeal recipe. I also like Paula Deen and miss her show. People change, and everyone has said something in their past that they regret.

  6. I think you should stick with the word autumn and confuse people – or they will just think you are being very posh! haha!
    I am already picking up the local lingo over here – well more the abreviations! I love the fact that the Aussies shorten everything.

  7. Dear Arman, what a great way to get all those flavors and nutrition in. I love oatmeal and always chop an apple in it. I’m going to have to take it a step further and give this a go. Have a wonderful day my friend, Catherine

  8. Ah, you finally get to make good in the right season to eat it…well, sortof. I mean it’s still hotter than the Devil out there, and we’re thinking about delicious Fall food. Err Autumn. Err Fall. Heck, who cares what you call out or how hot it is out there…these flavors are right up my alley! Oh, and I love that you called Paula Deen a goose. 🙂

  9. All oatmeal, porridge, granola bars, parfaits and warm omelets remind me of autumn! I will miss my smoothie bowls :'( what a great recipe! I’ve made French Toast oatmeal but never with apples–have to try that and I bet it will be amazing!

  10. It pains me greatly to say that I won’t be able to meet up with you before going back to Boston, BUT when we do reunite, we must have breakfast together. Pancakes, French toast, waffles, balls, cold chicken, guatever.
    Does Paula Deen on toast mean butter on toast, or….?

  11. Hello! I’ve included this recipe in my list of oat-tactic recipes to check out in my blog’s Saturday round-up. Don’t worry: it’s simply a link that takes my readers to your fantastic blog. 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  13. This might be a stupid question, but when you carmelize the apple on the stove/in the microwave, do you add water to it or just use the apple, cinnamon and nutmeg? I’m wondering if it will burn or not.

  14. I made this with canned pineapple instead and it was so good. It literally smelled and tasted like French toast! (no kidding, huh?) My family gave it 4 stars out of 5, which is saying a lot because they don’t like oatmeal at all. Definitely a keeper!
