33 complete

if i’m on track (and i am) for completing my 52 recipe challenge, i should have completed 28 recipes by now. and i’ve still got several i need to put up! that excites me. i’m so glad to have made and added so many new recipes to my cooking repertoire. some have added new skills, some have just been new combinations or ways to try things. but, overall, i think this is a challenge i want to stick with for longer than just a year…it may end up being something i regularly try.

recipe #33: baked apples

i guess this one didn’t add so much of a new skill, but it was a really easy dish to put together. plus, healthy-ish. well, more healthy than other desserts i guess.

this is the original recipe, although i scaled it down just to two apples for us so we could get two desserts out of it and not get tired of it.

3-4 apples (we used granny smith)

1/4 c. butter, melted

1/2 c. flour (gf of course!)

1/2 c. oats (also gf)

1/2 c. brown sugar

1 t. cinnamon

pinch of ground ginger

pinch of ground nutmeg

preheat oven to 350 degrees f. wash and cut the apples in half. using a melon baller, scoop out the seeds and core.

combine butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in a bowl and stir well. fill the cored apples with the butter mixture. place on a baking sheet lined with foil. bake for 30 minutes.

we loved this dessert. it was perfectly sweet, and also had a wonderful texture of crunchy apples (we didn’t want them to be mushy!).

what other healthy desserts should we try?
