I hope that everyone had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.
Labor Day seems to mark the end of summer.
With that being said, fall is just around the corner.
And you know what that means???
Apples, pumpkins, early morning frost, and falling leaves, and maybe some baked apple treats coming your way.
Even though the temperatures are in the high 90’s … Yes, and it’s still HOT, I’m thinking cooler weather and autumn desserts.
Today, I wanted to share a dessert or a breakfast – depending on how and when you serve it.
This is an oatmeal with brown sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts stuffed into a delicious apple (I used a Honey Crisp) and baked (or any big delicious apple of your choosing) . This is a simple recipe that is so easy to make. I found the recipe here while browsing Courtney Allison’s beautiful blog at French Country Cottage.
While I love to try fresh new recipes and my husband loves apple pie,
I had to try it- and we thought it was good enough to share.
So you are aware, I adapted the recipe to our liking.
Here Is What You Need – Ingredients
2 – 4 apples
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
chopped walnuts or pecans
caramel topping for drizzle (optional)
vanilla ice cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Core each apple making a large well in the center and arrange apples on a baking dish/pie plate
(Save some of the apple meat to add to you oat mixture)
Mix oats, the1/4 c brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
Cut in the butter until evenly combined. (I softened the butter a bit before adding it to the oat mixture.)
This is the apple crumble with oats, cinnamon, apple chunks, and butter combined.
Spoon the oat mixture into each apple.
Sprinkle with brown sugar and walnuts.
Bake the apples until they are tender for approximately 30 minutes,
or until the filling is lightly brown and bubbling.
Here Is What We Did: As a Dessert –
We drizzled warm caramel over the top and served the warm apple with vanilla ice cream.
My husband contributed his ideas and likings to this recipe.
So delicious and good!
For Breakfast –
Top with fresh blueberries, serve and enjoy!
Maybe a little on the healthier side;)
This is a delicious apple crumble recipe with oats, cinnamon, and a buttery crisp stuffed in an apple.
A perfect fall comfort food.
Seriously a delicious and fun treat.
I hope you get a chance to make this delicious dessert/breakfast treat.
