Apple & Chai Breakfast Jars

There’s nothing I love more than fresh juicy fruit in summer but as the temperature starts to drop I start to crave warming cooked foods and these baked apples are perfect for autumn breakfast. They are slowly baked in a warming mix of chai spices and coconut suger until soft then served with creamy oats & coconut yoghurt. I love using tart green apples for this recipe to balance out the sweet chai spices. This is a great make-ahead breakfast as it keeps well in the fridge and the flavours get better over time. It’s delicious with the porridge served hot topped with warm baked apples. If you want it warm just heat the oat mix on the stove and top with the apples straight from the oven. I’ve also put a basic chai spice mix in which you can make a bulk batch of then use it for chai lattes or tea as well, alternatively cinnamon will work great as a replacement.
