Baked Apples

5 Feb

School has been overwhelming our lives lately. Besides taking 16-18 credits each, teaching observations, research, and studying we have decided to add something else to our lives. Saturday morning we excitedly accepted our bids to Phi Sigma Sigma, a service and social sorority on campus.

By joining we have gained 23 supportive sisters who bring so much love and support into our lives.

Although we will be much busier during these next few pledging weeks it will be so worth it! As a result, we will be meal prepping much more than usual. Required study hours each night have us on campus from 6:30-9pm. Pledge meetings make nights even longer. We are excited to have to start planning in advance. We promise to share our recipes, tips, and meals along the way. For now we’d like to share with you our celebratory dessert. Who doesn’t love baked apples? Especially these ones.

We always try to find unhealthy recipes and change the ingredients to make them healthier. We came across a baked apple recipe stuffed with butter, and brown sugar. There are plenty of other healthy ingredients that could substitute for the butter and brown sugar. We opted to stuff our apples with a combination of rolled oats, honey, and cinnamon. The directions are simple.

Directions:

1. Slice an apple in half and cut out the core with a knife (an apple corer would work perfect but we did not have one)

2. In a separate bowl for each apple combine 2 tablespoons of rolled oats, a dash of cinnamon, and a teaspoon of honey and heat in the microwave for 15 seconds.

3. Divide mixture between apple halves and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
