■ 2 Autumn Glory Apples, peeled and diced
■ 1/2 lemon, juiced
■ 1 tablespoon flour
■ 1 cup old fashioned oats
■ 1 teaspoon hemp seeds
■ 1 teaspoon amaranth seeds
■ 1/2 cup ground flaxseeds
■ 1/2 cup smooth almond butter
■ 1/3 cup honey
■ 1 teaspoon vanilla
■ 1/4 teaspoon salt
■ Optional: 1 tablespoon salted butter, melted
■ Optional: Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix diced apples with lemon juice and flour. If you want extra flavor in your recipe you can add melted butter over apples. In a separate bowl, mix oats, seeds, almond butter, honey, vanilla and salt. Stir until everything is integrated. Distribute apple mixture into mini cast iron dutch ovens (or any glass baking dish). Cover with oat mixture. If using a baking dish, cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 10 minutes. Top with greek yogurt for a special breakfast or ice cream for a delicious dessert.
