For the stewed apple topping
3 apples, cored and chopped
2 tbsps coconut sugar, palyra sugar, coconut syrup or maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp water

1) Start by making your stewed apples. Place the apples into a pan with all ingredients, then stir to combine. Heat on a low to medium heat for 3-4 minutes, then stir gently and cook until softened, adding more water if needed. Remove from the hob and set aside.
2) Preheat your oven to 180C and grease a baking dish.
3) For the oats, stir together your dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Combine the two bowls, stirring well until mixed together, then fold in the walnuts and chopped apples.
4) Place in the oven to bake for around 30 minutes, or until golden, then serve with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and the stewed apples.
