Dessert for One: Baked Apple with Oatmeal Crumble


I am a firm believer in dessert.  It is not only tasty, but it satisfies a sort of hunger that no other food can.  Baked apples are not only sweet and satisfying, but they are fruit!  OK.  I’m not claiming that a baked apple is as healthy as a nice, fresh one, no sugar and butter added, but it has to be healthier than a lot of other desserts out there.

This recipe is for a single baked apple.  Simply multiply ingredients by the number of apples you’d like to bake.


Baked Apple with Oatmeal Cumble

1 tart green apple (I used a gravenstein that came in my CSA box)

1 tbsp. quick oats

2 tsp. brown sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

dash of nutmeg

1 tsp. butter


Core the apple, digging about half way down and making about a 1″ hole in diameter.  Make sure you get out all of the seeds!  In a small bowl, mix together all other ingredients, except the butter.  Spoon the mixture into the apple, getting in as much tasty goodness as you can.

Spray a baking sheet or dish with a bit of non-stick spray or olive oil.  Place the apple in your dish and top it off with the 1 tsp. of butter.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until the apple is tender, but not mushy.
