When my parents visited our house, they brought with them a bounty of lemons and apples from their plentiful trees. So when I was in the mood for a dessert treat on Friday night, I caught myself staring at the apples and remembering a pinned recipe that looked quite deliciously simple. So, I tweaked the recipe for one lonely apple, turned my oven to 350 degrees, and got moving!
Baked Chai Apple treat
(based on a recipe from My Baking Addiction)
1 green apple
1/4 cup of rolled oats
1 T brown sugar (add more to your liking)
1/2 T butter (melted)
1/2 teaspoon chai spice blend (here’s an easy combination to make at home)
Honey or caramel (for drizzling)
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Core your apple. Then, remove as much of the inner apple as you prefer. (If you’d like more sugary oats and less fleshy apple, then cut away more than I did in the photo above) Place apple in an oven-proof bowl… and make sure to choose a bigger one if you’d like to add ice cream at the end!
3. Combine all of the listed ingredients and, using a spoon, loosely fill your apple to the top.
4. Bake for 30 minutes. Take the apple dish out of the oven and drizzle with your choice of honey or caramel. Add ice cream and completely indulge!
