Grilled Apple Slices with Cinnamon-Spiced Oatmeal, Goat Cheese, & Chia Seeds


I have never liked oatmeal alone, even if its flavored with spices such as cinnamon. I usually pair oatmeal with fruits. My favorites are apples & blueberries! I decided to make these for breakfast because we had a lot of apples at home and I didn't know what to do with them... So I cut up some apple slices and added some toppings I had at home. You can always add different things, but here's what I made:

1 Red Apple
1/2 cup Oats
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup Goat Cheese
1/8 cup Sliced Almonds
1/8 cup Dried Raisins
2 tbsp chia seeds
Servings: 1-2

1. I would microwave some oatmeal:
In a bowl, add oats, milk, salt, cinnamon together. Stir.
Microwave for 2 minutes. Set aside.



2. Cut Apple Slices (not extremely thin because it should be able to hold the weight of oatmeal on top)


3. Grill the apple slices.



4. Spread oatmeal.

5. Sprinkle with your favorite toppings! I added goat cheese, chia seeds, sliced almonds, dried raisins, and arugula. I also found this chia seeds mix in my kitchen cabinet which contained the chia seeds, sliced almonds, dried raisons, and dried apples so I didn't have to add everything separately.


I got this at ShopRite in the gluten-free section, in case you want to get Chia seeds or a mix like this.
I also like to incorporate chia seeds into smoothies and sprinkle them in salads or fruit dishes, because
I found that chia seeds have the many health benefits and is great for weight loss, for example:


  • Have Antioxidants
  • Almost All The Carbs in Them Are Fiber
  • High in Protein
  • High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • Improve blood markers, which should lower the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes
  • Contain important bone nutrients, for example: calcium
  • Improve exercise performance
