I love oatmeal, the oat kind, so much but I know that it does not always agree with my stomach. When I attempted the Whole30 lifestyle, I knew that I wanted something similar in texture to oatmeal, and with good nutrients that would keep me full. After experimenting and finding the ingredients that I felt worked best, I bring you applemeal! The oatless version of oatmeal! It is amazing, full of nutrient dense ingredients, and I have to say, I LOVE IT MORE THAN OATMEAL! You can make a big batch of it on Sunday's and grab and go during the week, warming it in the microwave or just eating it cold, bot hare great options! Try it for yourself and see how full it keeps you and how satisfying it truly is!
apple- preferably red because green is too sour
2 medjool dates
1 tbl shredded coconut ( unsweetened)

1 tbl cashew butter ( unsalted and no sugar)
Bee pollen ( if accessible)
1. Dice up the apple and dates and add them to the food processor, pulse until combined. Add in the chia seeds, flaxseed, and coconut. Pulse again until everything is combined.
2. Take the mixture out and place into a container. Microwave for 1 minute if eating that morning or place into the fridge for later.
3. When ready to eat, drizzle on the cashew butter and the bee pollen and enjoy!!
