Apple Pie Yogurt Brûlée

November 2, 2015

Do you crave something sweet for breakfast? Have no fear! You can make this Healthy Apple Pie Yogurt Brûlée in a few minutes!

I LOVE greek yogurt for breakfast!  Its one of the few things that actually keep me full for at least 3 hours!  Everything else I eat leaves me hangry after an hour of eating (#fastmetabolismproblems ).  But I’m completely serious when I say NOTHING feels me up quite like a big bowl of greek yogurt does.  I’ve tried every breakfast food, from three egg omelets, oatmeal with a ginormous amount of PB, five multi-grain pancakes with bacon, etc.


Maybe its because my body is picky and tries to imply that only yogurt will do, or maybe its all in my head (insert awkward smiling emoji).  But I’m not complaining, because greek yogurt is one of the most perfect foods in my opinion!  Its full of satisfying protein that gives me tons of energy to go about my day!


Did you ever had apple pie for breakfast?  oh no you didn’t?  You can change that now!  Did you have creme brûlée for breakfast before? Oh no, not that either?  I can fix that!  You can have this simple but perfect Apple Pie Yogurt  Brûlée for breakfast that can be made in under 5 minutes!  Its hard to believe that this dessert breakfast is made of all natural ingredients and is paleo friendly, vegan friendly (when coconut yogurt is used), grain-free, gluten-free and just plain delicious!




Apple Pie Yogurt Brûlée


  • 1/2 plain greek yogurt or coconut yogurt
  • 1 small apple, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. crushed walnuts
  • 1/2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon

    I’m the same about breakfast foods. I need protein and fat or I’m starving like instantly!! The nuts and apples are an awesome combo. Love the way this sounds for breakfast or a snack!

    i have been trying to eat more yogurt (siggis is my favorite right now) this will be a nice change to regular yogurt by itself.

    I love this recipe. So simple! I miss greek yogurt — used to be my absolute favorite. Dairy-free yogurts never come close sadly. But I’m glad you gave the coconut alternative. Looks yummy!
