Servings 2



  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup rolled oats or any oats you have on hand
  • 3 tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • teaspoon salt

Tahini Caramel Apples

  • 2 small apples chopped into 1/2 inch (1 cm) pieces
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

For serving

  • cinnamon
  • chopped walnuts or pecans


  • Bring the water to a boil in a small pot, then add oats and salt and turn down to medium low. Cover, with lid slightly ajar, keep it at a simmmer until oats reach desired consistency, about 8-14 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat butter in a medium nonstick pan over medium heat. Add apples and cover with a lid for three minutes to steam.
  • Mix the maple syrup, tahini, vanilla and salt in a small bowl. Don't worry that it's not creamy, it will come together in the pan.
  • Add the maple tahini sauce to the apples and stir through. Let bubble for 2 or so minutes until the caramel thickens and darkens a little bit. You want it to look saucy, not dry. Remove from heat.
  • When the oatmeal is done, stir in hemp hearts and tahini. Portion into 2 or 3 bowls, top with caramel apples and some cinnamon and chopped nuts.


If you have a smaller appetite, this recipe may give you three servings...you could easily double it for meal prep! It will keep well for the week - but you want to store the caramel apples separately from the oatmeal for best flavour. Otherwise, the oats kind of suck up the flavour and it loses a bit of it's WOW effect :)
