Not sure what to do with all those leftover apples? Here are two recipes for you:

Ingredients 

½ c. unsweetened coconut flakes
1 c. uncooked quinoa
1 apple, chopped
1 c. water
1 c. coconut milk (or milk of choice), plus extra for serving
2 T. virgin coconut oil
2 T. maple syrup
2 t. vanilla extract
2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground ginger
pinch of ground cloves
1 t. sea salt
2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
optional to garnish: more chopped apple or sliced almonds 

Apple & Coconut Breakfast Quinoa 

Break out of the morning oatmeal rut with this flavorful Apple & Coconut Quinoa made with our Collagen Peptides. Using fresh seasonal apples, coconut milk, coconut flakes, and warm spices, it’s a healthy balanced meal that will feel like dessert for breakfast. Quinoa is packed with fiber, protein, and minerals and adding our Collagen Peptides aids in providing a more balanced protein complex to help keep you full for longer. Makes 2-4 servings!

Instructions

1. Place the coconut flakes in a medium saucepan and place over low heat. Cook the coconut flakes until browned, stirring them frequently to prevent burning (they can burn quickly). Remove about half the coconut flakes and set aside for garnishing later.

2. Turn the heat to medium and add the quinoa, chopped apple, water, and coconut milk to the remaining toasted coconut flakes. Stir well. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cover. Cook for 15-20 minutes covered, or until all the liquid has been absorbed and the quinoa is fluffy. Turn the heat off and leave covered 5 minutes to rest.

3. Remove the lid and add the coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, sea salt, and Collagen Peptides. Stir well to incorporate all the ingredients. Portion into bowls and garnish with coconut flakes, coconut milk, chopped apple, or sliced apples, as desired.

OATMEAL APPLE CRISP

3-4 c. apples, chopped
3 tbsp. flour
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. oatmeal
1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. Melted butter

Pour in the butter and incorporate well. Spread over the apples. Bake at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve hot or cool with cream or ice cream.
