Simple Baked Apples with Strawberry Oat Filling
It’s fall and it’s lovely.
I know a lot of people say their fave season is fall.
And what’s not to like?
More comfortable weather, chunky sweaters, cute boots, PSLs (pumpkin spice lattes!) and all things apples and pumpkins 🙂
Case in point:
My Simple Baked Apples with Strawberry Oat Filling!
These little guys pack quite the yum-yum punch.
Baked apples always intrigued me but not being the best cook on the block, I wasn’t sure if they’d turn out or if anyone would even try them (let alone like them.)
Thankfully, these got the “this is the best baked apple I’ve ever had” approval from hubby.
(I’m not sure what the count is on how many varieties of baked apples he’s had but I’ll take it.)
Many recipes for baked apples are simply the brown sugar so if you want even simpler than mine, go with that.
I added strawberries because well, I had some and why not?
Well again, my not? 🙂
When you eat them, it’s almost like a mini apple and strawberry crisp!
I kept the “hats” for mostly picture taking so you don’t have to keep those on but maybe your kids will get a kick out of it too.
Or if you’re serving these for a get together this fall, keeping the “hats” offers a nice presentation touch (“oooooooh, fancy!” your guests will exclaim.)
Bottom line: a simple, healthy recipe “dessert” that you can throw in the oven and forget about it while you eat supper.
And forget about it quickly enough is great because your preschooler will start to loudly protest that the green beans are actually on his plate (again.)
These were a hit in my house and I hope they are in yours too 🙂
