This recipe is healthy enough to eat for breakfast, but it's good enough to serve as a dessert. I especially like it because my husband has high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Oats are supposed to be good for reducing high cholesterol, and the topping for this dessert includes 1 cup of oats.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
- 1/2 cup oat flour (oats processed in food processor, see below)
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 tablespoon whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 4 cups apples, sliced and peeled (I used McIntosh, but if you prefer a tart taste, Granny Smith is very nice)
- 1Prepare the oat flour by processing 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats in the food processor. (You can also buy oat flour at a health food store or possibly a grocery store.).
- 2Cut the 1/2 stick butter in half lengthwise, in half again, and then slice into small cubes. Turn on the food processor again and feed the cubes into the food processor while it is running.
- 3Cream the sugar and cinnamon into the oat mixture, then add the whole oats.
- 4Chill the mixture in the refrigerator while you prepare the apples.
- 5Preheat the oven to 350 and spray an 8 x 8-inch pan with cooking spray.
- 6After the apples have been peeled and sliced, spread them out in the 8 x 8-inch pan. Crumble the oat mixture on top.
- 7Bake for 30 minutes and serve warm.
