Pistachio Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

This delicious, super easy, plant-based oatmeal recipe is full of protein, slow-digesting carbohydrates, and healthy fats—the perfect formula for a breakfast that will keep you feeling satisfied until lunch! My Pistachio Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal is completely plant-based (vegan), gluten-free, and based on whole plant foods—oats, apples, and cinnamon. With only 4 ingredients, you can whip up this sugar-free recipe in the microwave in only 2 minutes! It’s the perfect “meal-in-a-mug” or “microwaveable mug” recipe. You can also make this recipes as overnight oats in a mason jar and tote it along for a to-go breakfast the next morning.

While this recipe is delicious with apples as a fall or winter time cereal, you can also swap out another seasonal fruit, such as berries, peaches, and persimmons.
