Fall is just around the corner…
and that means apples, pumpkins and all things
delicious are coming up soon.
This week, even though it is 103 degrees out this way (seriously… hot hot hot)
I am thinking about delicious autumn recipes with the harvest of apples, pears and peaches from our
trees as well as the local farm where we stop and buy fresh fruit.
And today- it is all about breakfast. Or dessert depending on how you look at it. 😉
And oatmeal with brown sugar and walnuts.
In a delicious baked apple.
It is a simple recipe that is so easy to make.
I found this while browsing autumn recipes and had to try it- and it was good enough to share.
Here is how you make it.
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
chopped walnuts or pecans
Note: I omitted the butter- and just sprinkled the brown sugar
and it came out perfectly.
Not a big butter fan and wanted to keep this on the healthier side.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Core each apple making a large well in the center and arrange apples on baking sheet or dish.
Mix oats, a little bit of the brown sugar (1/4 c) and cinnamon together in a bowl
Cut in butter until evenly combined.
Spoon 1/4 of the oat mixture into each apple.
Sprinkle with brown sugar and walnuts.
Bake until apples are tender and filling is bubbling
about 30 minutes.
Then top with fresh blueberries
and serve and enjoy!
Seriously delicious and sooo good.
