Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal

When it comes to breakfast comfort food, oatmeal definitely falls into that category (admittedly along with waffles, French toast and pancakes, but trying to stick with the healthier option). Sautéing the apples and dates in ghee adds a nice buttery richness to the humble bowl of oats. You can easily adjust the ingredients in this recipe to your liking — a drizzle of maple syrup is also a nice touch.
