  • 1 tablespoon of honey, golden syrup, or maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon of pecans, walnuts, or cashews

  • 1 to 2 scoops of ice cream of your choice (I suggest vanilla or coffee)


  1. 1

    Combine applesauce or butter and sugar syrup in a pan on medium-to-low heat. (If using "natural" nut butter, an additional teaspoon of syrup or honey may be necessary). Add oats. Cook until browned.

    Remove from flame. Add nuts and dried fruit. Continue to stir as pan cools for another minute.

  3. 3

    Top ice cream with mixture. Add more nuts or sugar syrup if desired.
