Have you ever had a baked apple? With all the cinnamon, brown sugar, oats and butter stuffed in an apple and baked? They are wonderful. This is just a smaller version of them, one I can send to school with my son in his lunch. 🙂
Baked Apple Bites
2 green apples, washed, cored and grated
1 cup oats
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
a dash ground cloves
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix everything together and pack into muffin cups that have been sprayed with non stick spray. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool and eat. 🙂
I baked mine in silicone mini muffin cups, if you use a larger size muffin pan you’ll need to add 10 minutes or so on the cooking time.
Note: if you want to make the original baked apples combine everything but the grated apples and lemon juice and pack into washed apples that you have cut the top off and scooped out the middle. You can chop up the apple that you scooped out (no seeds or core) and mix it with the oat mixture (and the lemon juice). Set the apples upright in a baking dish and put the tops back on the apples. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until the apples start to soften. Top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
