We love when we come across a recipe that we can each put our own spin on. This one can double as a healthier choice for breakfast and then again as a fabulous dessert.
The Twice Baked Twins eating a piece of fruit with their morning cuppa? I don’t think so! But this recipe may just do it! Judy loves this dish as a healthy breakfast choice.
What could be a better than sweet apples and creamy oatmeal to start the day? It’s just so versatile. Add whatever your family enjoys from protein powders, sweet fruits and fruit juices to any kind of nuts.
Joy loves to serve it as dessert with a thick, creamy, vanilla bean custard sauce with a dollop of fresh cream. Our mom used to make this for us all the time when we were kids and the warm memories are deliciously remembered with every spoonful.
Whether you cook it slowly in an oven or give it a quick zap in the microwave, an oatmeal baked apple is a quick, more nutritious alternative to fat laden recipes or sugar filled cereals. The hollowed out apple makes a wonderful presentation for anyone and the kids will love it too. Enjoy!
Judy had nothing in the house one morning and whipped up one of the little gems…it was amazeballs!!
