Because nothing is better than great food... except enjoying it with someone special!


Baked Apple Oatmeal


Labels: ,

We think breakfast is the best meal of the day... probably because food is the first thing on our mind when we wake up. So, we though we might as well share some of our breakfast favorites too!

We love experimenting with oatmeal, but this is a classic we keep coming back to.

What you'll need:

-2 cups water
-3/4 cup conventional oats
-1 apple (get one that's good for baking -- fuji or honeycrisp are our favorites)
-2 tbsp. walnuts, chopped fine
-1 tbsp. butter, melted
-2 tbsp. cinnamon
-1 tbsp. brown sugar
-1 splash of vanilla extract

What to do:

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Slice apple into fourths and remove core. With pastry brush, spread butter over apples (face up), and sprinkle 1 tbsp. of cinnamon over all. Bake for about 20 minutes or until soft.

Bring the water to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Turn heat to low and add oats, brown sugar, walnuts, vanilla and remaining 1 tbsp. of cinnamon. Stir continuously as oats start to absorb water -- will take about 20 minutes to fully absorb.

Chop the apple into cubes and add to the oatmeal when water is almost fully absorbed (10-15 minutes in). If you have excess, use as garnish!

Stir and enjoy alongside your favorite coffee. Good morning!
