greek yogurt 52 ways #27: broiled apples with a crunchy oat topping
The idea for this recipe came to me this morning as I considered what to have for breakfast. I mentioned having smoothies for breakfast lately, but as the weather cools, I am looking for something warm instead. (Sidenote: I love fall). I pulled out what was in the pantry (and fruit bowl) and came up with the following recipe. I'm a wizard like that. (I'm actually a stay-at-home mom on a budget... like that. ;)
For the crunchy oat topping: preheat your oven to 350*. Combine 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats, 1/4 cup of shredded coconut, and 2 tbsp of brown sugar. Put in a greased baking pan (I used non stick spray) and toast for about 10 minutes, stirring often. This will make about 3 servings.
Next broil your sliced apples of choice. Be sure to spray them with non stick spray (they're likely to burn otherwise). Broil for 3-5 minutes until the skins of your apples are soft.
Finally, top your Greek yogurt with your broiled apples and crunchy oat topping. I'm literally eating this as I put this post together (though I will publish this post in the early afternoon after I add the pictures).
It's so good! The crunchy oat topping can be combined with other fruit, as well- all depending on what you have on hand. I'm thinking this would make an excellent, low-calorie dessert. Let me know if you try it!
