Apple Pie @ Breakfast

This morning I received a call from my boss.  He needs me to proof several (mucho importante) documents before they go to a client.  We had the following conversation:

Boss: It is important that these are perfect.

Me: Sure – no problem.

Boss: Do whatever you need to do in order to maintain focus – read one, go for a rune, read one, go for a run.

Me: (LMAO)


Cool or scary that he knows this about me?!

Did I mention how much I love my job?


Obviously, I need to be well-fed to complete this task.  I’ve been looking forward to testing out the Apple Pie Oatmeal creation by Angela @ Oh She Glows.

I adjusted it a bit for my taste.  I added the apples later in the process to ensure they held onto their crunch, and included ginger.  Of course, I had to top it with PB because apples + PB go together like peas + carrots.  Jenny.

Eating this was a Friday morning religious experience amazing.

Apple Pie Oatmeal

  • 1/3 C oats (I combined multi-grain and Scottish)
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/2 C unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 C water
  • 1/4 C unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 Braeburn apple, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 T peanut butter
  • 1 T pumpkin seeds

In a small pot over med-high heat, mix the 1/3 cup oats, chia seeds, spices, milk, water, and applesauce.  Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring often.  When the mixture is just beginning to thicken, add fresh apple pieces. Pie Oatmeal is done when the mixture thickens and the liquid is absorbed.

Pour into a bowl and add toppings of choice.  I used peanut butter and pumpkin seeds.


How well does your boss know you?

Well enough to know midday running produces maximum concentration?

    Your boss sounds awesome. My boss knows me well enough to know that I workout a lot, but probably doesn’t know that I’m usually training for a race.
