With only a week left of school before finals, nothing quite hits the spot like comfort food. While some comfort foods can make us feel groggy, this baked apple oatmeal dish will not. The apples actually contain quercetin, an antioxidant, that enhances memory function!
Time: 25 Minutes
⅓ Cup Rolled Oats
½ Cup Apple, Chopped
1 Large Egg
⅓ Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
¼ tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Cinnamon
½ tbsp Raw Honey
½ tsp Coconut Oil
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Chop the apple into cubes.
Heat a nonstick skillet on medium-low heat and add in coconut oil. Once the skill is hot, sauté the apples until the edges turn brown. Continue stirring so the apple cubes do not stick to the skillet (roughly 6 to 8 minutes).
While the apples are cooking, mix together the rest of the ingredients in an oven safe bowl. If the batter is too thick or dry, add another tablespoon of almond milk.
Add the sautéed apples to the mixture in the bowl and stir.
Bake in the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Do not overcook them because they can quickly dry out!
Serve while hot and enjoy the soft, caramelized apples hidden in the oatmeal. Feel free to add a dollop of yogurt or additional honey if desired!
