It’s fall and that means it’s apple season. Who doesn’t love this time of year? I know, I’m a total fall fan. Crisp air, apples, pumpkins… unlimited recipe ideas! Tonight I wanted to make something other than a crisp or pie with some apples. I threw some ingredients together and it already smells heavenly.
4 medium sized apples of your choice
5 tablespoons of butter, melted
1 cup of oats
4 teaspoons of maple syrup or agave
2 tablespoons of light brown sugar
1/2 cups of nuts, your choice – walnuts, pecans or almonds work beautifully
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In a 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish add water to come up the side about 1/2 of an inch. Set aside.
Slice the top of the apple off and then make a well or bowl by removing the inner part of the apple. Be sure not to break the outer flesh or the bottom of the apple. I use my apple corer to do this slowly. Reserve the apple you remove and chop it up into a coarse texture. Set aside.
Into a mixing bowl add the butter, oats, syrup, brown sugar, nuts, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the apple that you removed earlier. Mix well. Spoon the mixture into the hollowed out portion of each apple. Then gently set the apples into your prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour. Remove and serve immediately.
