Fall is the time for fresh starts and new beginnings, which is why it makes the perfect time to start a healthy habit.
It is also the ideal time for apple recipes, since apples are in season during Fall.
Eating cooked Bramley apples always gives me that comforting Autumn feeling. There is something about the smell and taste of Bramley apples cooking on the stove that instantly brings me back to my childhood.
If you’ve been stuck in a rut of boring carb heavy breakfasts like cereal or toast (and we have all been there!) then why not try something different like this simple Bramley Apple and Coconut Chia Breakfast bowl.
Vegan Bramley Apple and Coconut Chia Breakfast Bowl Recipe
This breakfast recipe is suitable for Vegan diets. Many of the typical breakfast options like cereal with milk, or eggs, are not suitable for a Vegan diet so if you’re new to Veganism it could be hard to know what to try.

Bramley apples are one of the most common varieties of cooking apples, and if you have an apple tree in your garden here in the UK, there is a high chance that these apples will be Bramley Apples.
Bramley apples are one of the few types of apples that have remained popular with gardeners and farmers for centuries. They are considered to be hardy, disease resistant, and grow best in cool weather – making them very easy to thrive in an English garden, with very little effort.
This recipe is a great way to use some of your apple harvest, beyond the typical apple pie and apple crumble recipes.
Growing up, we had two apple trees in the garden and from these two trees we would have so many apples, we would be eating all kinds of apple recipes for a few months over the Autumn season.
Sadly my current garden does not have apple trees, but luckily we can still easily pick up Bramley apples at the supermarket or fruit market.
