 Yum !

This recipe is SUPER yummy, I promise I felt like I was eating a large slice of Apple Crumble dessert, yet this has FAR less calories, quick to make & certainly a crowd pleaser. 

 

Ingredients:

  • Whole apples (I used Jazz apples, most apples work well for baking)
  • Whole raw Oats (2 tbl sp per apple)
  • Brown raw sugar (1/2 tsp per apple)
  • Cinnamon (Sprinkle per apple)

 Cored apples (I just used a sharp knife) be sure not to go all the way through the bottom.

Method: (Oven 200c)

  • Mix all the oats, brown sugar & cinnamon in a bowl & set aside
  • Carefully Core the apples, making sure NOT to go the whole way through - you want the bottom to still be closed
  • Place the oat mixture carefully (and evenly) inside the cored apples
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes until the apples are soft when poked

Tips:

  • The baking time varies with the type of apple you used - mine cooked for 35 minutes & were still slightly firm, which is how I like them
  • If you'd like them mushy then just leave it in longer - apple like Granny Smith (yellow) cook much quicker so keep an eye on them.
  • I served mine with unsweetened thick greek yogurt - it was gorgeous!
