This was so creamy and so delectable. Every bite comes with a little sweetness from the baked apples, a creamy touch from the flax seeds, a little sour from the baked nectarine, warm cinnamon, a nutty crunch from the sunflower kernels, and a juicy pop from the fresh apples. Need I say more? Not to mention your oven will give off the most amazing scents and make your house smell like warm cinnamon apple pie.
The reason why I slow baked this for an hour is to let the flavors really set in and to allow the flax seeds to absorb milk and become soft. Trust me, it ends up being so delicious and so creamy! If you don't have much time to cook in the morning I suggest preparing this the night before and storing it in the fridge. That way when you wake up in the morning all you have to do is pop it in the oven while you're getting ready. Also, if you store them overnight, the oats and flax seeds will have absorbed most of the milk so it's not necessary to slow bake for an entire hour. Instead, bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
