Sweet Spaghetti (Apple “Noodles” + Nut “Balls”)

This Sweet Spaghetti has me singing with joy! It’s so good I’ve prepared a little skit to convince you to whip it up…

Skeptic: Spaghetti for breakfast, you say?

Me: Yes, I do. Anyone will love it, even you. 

Skeptic: But where are the noodles? And why does it look mushy?

Me: Don’t judge a plate by its presentation, (unless you’re on the Food Network.) The base is apploodles! And it’s sweet, crisp, and nutty!

Skeptic: (takes a bite) Oh my! This means I can have spaghetti and balls for every meal! 

In all seriousness, this is a unique and nourishing breakfast for all diets. Picky eaters will warm up to it, and you’ll soon start to crave the familiar flavors and twisted appearance.

Mid-way through mixing!
Apple noodles and peanut balls are finished!

Sweet Spaghetti Recipe


Single Serving

WHAT YOU’RE GONNA NEED:

Spiralizer (can be the cheap handheld variety. No need to buy the big contraption unless you’re a Zoodle fiend.)

1 large apple, any variety (I prefer Granny Smith because SOUR)

1/4 cup yogurt (I use a vegan coconut blend)

1/2 tbsp peanut powder, such as PBFit or PB2

1/2 tbsp peanut butter*

1 tbsp almond milk or festive creamer, such as Nutpods cookie butter

Copious amount of cinnamon

OPTIONAL: 1/4 cup applesauce, warmed (like an apple pie marinara) + 1/2 tbsp crushed peanuts

For the peanut “meatballs”: Option 1 (option 2 is listed in the footnotes)

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup shelled peanuts

1/2 cup (60g) dates, Deglet Noor or Medjool

1 tbsp peanut butter OR reconstituted peanut powder

WHAT YOU’RE GONNA DO:
  1. Make the plant balls ahead of time. I think this is called “meal prep,” but don’t quote me on that.
  2. In a shallow but wide bowl (like a pasta plate,) whisk together the yogurt, peanut powder, peanut butter, and creamer with a small fork. Add cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste.
  3. Spiralize the apples right into the PB cream sauce. Toss to coat like you would regular spaghetti!
  4. Add the nut “meatballs” and garnish with cinnamon and crushed peanuts. If you like apple pie, microwave some applesauce for 20 seconds and pour it on top. Twirl it up and YUM!

FOOTNOTES:

*This meal can be suitable for weight loss, maintenance, or gain. For weight loss, stick to 1/2 tbs of PB or use all PB powder. Scooch that up to 12g or 1 tbsp if you’re maintaining. Workin’ on weight gain? Use as much nut butter as you can cram in.

**Option 2: For ease, take a CORE peanut butter probiotics bar and cut it into 6-8 squares. Tightly roll each square into a sphere, and place them atop the apple noodles like meatballs. You can also use their cashew caramel adaptogen bars, which are my favorite!


I was going to make a maple walnut streusel but decided not to go overboard. While this may seem overwhelming (for your eyes, taste buds, and perceived time management issues,) it comes together in less than 15 minutes. Oh, and feel free to add maple syrup or maple extract if you DO want that tree sap flavor.

Does this float your boat? Try adding a scoop of my maple gelato!
