Inexperienced Kitchen Tales » Baked Apples with Spiced Oatmeal
Simply checking in rapidly in the present day to share a pleasant little apple breakfast recipe that now we have been making quite a bit these days. We know that August hasn’t ended but and all of us need to maintain on to summer season for so long as we are able to and fake that winter isn’t coming. However we thought we’d offer you somewhat one thing for when the primary chillier days arrive (which has already occurred right here btw) and also you hear raindrops come knocking in your window sills. For these moments, you can simply bust these baked apples out of the oven, let the scent of heat cinnamon unfold via your private home and instantly really feel somewhat higher about the entire scenario.
We’ve been making variations of this each as breakfast and dessert – filling them with oatmeal topped with yogurt for breakfast, and a date and almond paste topped with whipped cream for dessert.
The concept to pimp common oatmeal/porridge by stuffing it inside baked apples is fairly nice in its simplicity. However right here we make it a tad extra particular and additional scrumptious by cooking the oatmeal with pure apple juice/cider, spices, butter or coconut oil and chopped almonds for further wealthy taste and texture. We then prime the baked apples with a thick yogurt and drizzle with ginger honey for sweetness. And for those who’ve obtained somewhat nut butter at house, that’s additionally good on prime. At all times use native apples if they’re accessible and in season, they style method higher!
I’d love to speak extra, however it was my birthday yesterday and Luise shocked me with a dinner, sleepover and breakfast at Stedsans within the Woods. It’s a restaurant in the midst of the Swedish forest with nice meals, beduin tents, outside showers and a floating sauna. So we’re fairly desperate to expertise it. I’ll in all probability share a couple of snaps on my Instagram tales later tonight, if you wish to test it out.
