This is one of my favorite breakfast or healthy dessert treats! It is SO easy, cheap, healthy and delicious! I generally make a large batch.  You can freeze it also!


This is the perfect recipe if you have an abundance of apples.



2 c. oats OR 6 grain rolled mix

1 c. sugar

1 c. freshly ground whole wheat flour or All purpose white flour

1/2 c. butter

2 tbsp molasses

1 pinch of salt


8 - 10 apples, washed, quartered, thinly sliced and seeds removed. Leave the skin on.

1/4 c. Maple Syrup (see recipe below)


Time saver: I use my food processor to slice the apples in seconds or just do this by hand.


In a large bowl, drizzle the maple syrup on sliced apples, then gently stir.

In a separate bowl, mix the topping ingredients together.

Dump the topping over all the apples and gently toss.


Cook 35 min. at 375 degrees


I love this dish hot in a bowl with milk!  It's the best!


SO much easier and healthier than making a pie.


Homemade Maple Syrup


1 c sugar or honey

½ c. water

1 tsp Maple Extract Flavoring


Cook water and sugar mixture until it comes to a boil and becomes clear. Do not let it boil.

Take it off the stove and add Maple Extract Flavoring.


Money Saving Tip: Make this syrup in any quantities. I make a large quantity since I use it as a topping for pancakes, crepes, waffles, apple crisp, granola, etc.

Make it in larger quantities by adding 2 parts sugar/honey to 1 part water.
