Apple Pie for Breakfast? Not Really, But Your Taste Buds Will Think So

12.20.2018

As you feel the cool, crisp breeze of autumn this season, you may want to warm your kitchen with the sweet aroma of cinnamon-spiced apples—one of the many ingredients in apple pie—sautéing on the stove. Apple pie is my No. 1 cure for sadness as I bid farewell to summer. With each forkful, I convince myself to welcome the next season with open arms. The scent of cinnamon, sugar, apples, and piecrust that wafts through the air puts me in a good mood during those times of longing for the warmer weather.


I wish apple pie represented a well-balanced breakfast, but I know better than that. Sans the crust, however, the filling can become an easy to re-create topping and a healthful addition to the breakfast table. Replace some of the sugar in your traditional apple pie recipe with spices and the result is a flavorful compote fit for more than just a special occasion. You can use it as a topping for porridge or your favorite oatmeal.


In the following recipe, not only do I use cinnamon but also turmeric to spice things up. Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that studies show can lessen arthritis pain and help prevent heart disease. Its slight peppery flavor pairs nicely with ginger, another anti-inflammatory, to create a warm, comforting dish.


The cinnamon, peanut butter, and honey naturally add some sweetness to the spice. For even more natural sweetness, choose Honeycrisp or Gala apples so you won’t need to add a pie’s worth of extra sugar.


Because of these ingredients, this recipe celebrates the fall season and adds pizzazz to the breakfast table. My philosophy is that breakfast should be just as exciting as the anticipation of a decadent after-dinner pie. So never settle for a boring breakfast of cereal with milk or dry toast. Instead, spruce up the morning with a nutritious recipe as you say goodbye to summer and welcome fall. It will put a smile on your face and trick your taste buds into thinking they’re eating apple pie when they really aren’t.


Turmeric, Peanut, and Apple Compote


Breakfast shouldn’t be boring, and the spice combination in this apple compote makes sure it won’t be. Enhanced with ginger, turmeric, and creamy peanut butter, this is a dish full of flavor, nutrients, and a warm autumn feel. You can stir it into oatmeal; however, nutty millet is recommended to stand up to its powerful flavor.
