Oatmeal "Apple Bombs"
Baked apples are the perfect way to satisfy your apple pie cravings without all the work. This recipe is a healthier twist on this delectable fall treat. You start with whole apples, which you’ll core to remove the tough center (and seeds). The centers of the apple will then get stuffed with a delicious combination of oats, cinnamon, and other fall spices. Now doesn’t that sound a lot easier than pie?
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/8 cup brown sugar, packed (optional)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 Tbsp. ghee or butter, melted
4 medium apples, cored
1 cup water
A dollop of vanilla greek yogurt (optional)
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Combine oats, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and butter in a small bowl; mix with a fork until crumbly.
Fill apples evenly with oat mixture.
Place in an 8 x 8-inch glass pan; add water. Cover lightly with aluminum foil.
Bake for 20 minutes; remove foil, continue to bake for 20 minutes, or until apples are fork tender. Top with a side of vanilla greek yogurt!
