Eating Healthy Rocks - Baked Apples with Oatmeal Streusel Topping
Baked Apples with Oatmeal Streusel Topping

This is a super easy, healthy dessert, and great for guests. I like to double or triple the recipe to make several batches on different days/weeks, or freeze the topping in portions. It’s best served warm, but makes a fine cold midnight snack. It can also be made a day ahead.

1.Slice 3-4 apples in half with a large knife, then scoop out the seeds and stem parts with a melon baller.

2. Mix together:
a little over half stick/quarter cup melted butter or margarine or fat of your choice (I’ve used part olive oil or coconut oil.) (let me know if any of you try apple sauce and if it works!)
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup flour (I used whole wheat) or gluten-free ‘flour’ of your choice
1/2 cup brown sugar (or white sugar with date syrup or molasses or agave syrup)
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of ground ginger
pinch of salt

3. Fill and top apple halves with the mixture.

4. Bake at 350 F/180 C until tops are golden brown and apples swell, about 30 minutes.

UPDATES: The last couple times I made this I included ground walnuts or hazelnuts. You can tweak the recipe to your tastes. The leftover topping is also a real treat in yogurt.
