Gabriel and I make brunch every Sunday morning. It’s a fun ritual that allows us to spend time with one another. This recipe is something new I’ve been adding to our brunch rotation. It’s very simple and is great reheated the next day!
What you need:
- 2 apples, peeled and cut in half lengthwise
- 1/4 c brown sugar
- Autumn Harvest Blend or cinnamon
- 1 1/2 c stoneground Irish oatmeal
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 c milk (you can use oat or almond, too)
- 1/2 c slivered almonds, optional
Preheat oven to 350 F. Peel apples and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out center and dispose of seeds. Fill the holes with brown sugar and a pinch of Autumn Harvest Blend or cinnamon. Place apples in a small baking dish (9″ x 9″) and bake for 15 mins.
Meanwhile stir the rest of the ingredients, except the almonds, together until consistency of pancake batter. **If using another type of oatmeal, you will need more liquid.
Take apples out of oven and pour oatmeal mixture around apples. If apples get covered, don’t panic…it’s OK. Then sprinkle almonds on top and return oven for another 35 – 40 mins or until set.
Take out and enjoy!
