Baked Oatmeal Apples

Sometimes, you just need a little comfort food.

I don’t know about you – but apple crumble and apple pie are one of those warm, gooey, delicious treats that I could pretty much eat any time. And since I’m getting a bit sick on Halloween candy (zero willpower + 3 bags of Halloween candy that the kids have forgotten about = an ill Mumsie) – I needed something a tad healthier to satisfy my cravings.

My friend Dee sent me this idea for Baked Oatmeal Apples and not only are they delicious – they’re a versatile treat – good for breakfast, lunch, snacks, or even when you’re so hungry because you’ve been running around like a madwoman all day and now you just need to cram something in your gullet…

Plus – they’re ridiculously easy to make. Here’s what you need:

Ingredients

1 cup cooked oatmeal

1/4 cup raisins

A pinch of cinnamon

Several apples (however many you’d like to make)

Instructions

Mix together your cooked oatmeal, raisins and cinnamon.

Core your apples and place them on a cookie sheet.

Pack apples with oatmeal mixture.

Bake at 350 F for about 30 minutes. You’ll want to keep an eye on them though, because if they’re in the oven too long, the apples will turn to sauce.

Serve with a little drizzle of maple syrup for a great breakfast or a lunch box snack. Or put a dollop of whip cream for a healthier dessert option.

Tastes like apple crumble without all the sugar. Perfect!
