Baked Apple Oatmeal

We have been so enjoying our baked apples, so I decided to do a little experimentation. Basically that’s what cooking is all about, isn’t it? I never cook oatmeal with milk, buy I decided to give it a go for some added richness.

Basically, I followed the instructions on the side of the Old Fashioned Oatmeal box. Normally, I prefer the steel ground oats, but when I get a bee in my bonnet and want to try something new, I want to try it now. So, in under 10 minutes, I was ready to go.

Next I made baked apples. I basically followed Grandma O’s recipe except:

2 large baking apples, such as Honeycrisp or Fuji

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, softened

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup oatmeal or granola

drizzle with honey

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Wash and halve apples. Core out the center of the apple.

Place a tablespoon of butter in each center.

Sprinkle with brown sugar

Sprinkle with granola.

Drizzle with honey.

Bake until the apples are soft and the filling is browned, 1 hour.

***From the Recipe Box:

These were nummy. Both G and I gave them our seal of approval. Perfect food for a winter day.
