Today was a lazy day...laundry, cleaning and picking up around the house, so this afternoon I decided an early run would be great! And I haven't pushed the stroller in weeks, so it definitely made the run even more challenging and my oldest rode his bike like a champ in these hot temps! I felt great afterward but wanted something sweet...Hmmm, so I invented my baked apple deliciousness! Is that even a word??
apple, core removed-I used small Gala
1/4 cup oats
2 tbs flaxseed
Bake your apple in the microwave. I take a bowl, and place the apple w/ core removed, in the center.
I add about 2tbs water and 1tsp margarine to bowl, until bottom is covered.
Place in microwave for about 2-3 minutes, add water if needed and microwave 1 min intervals until cooked through.
Remove from microwave and while HOT add oats, sprinkle of brown sugar, flaxseed and cinnamon to taste!
Make sure your apple is nice and cooked through and it'll have the BEST flavor, plus the flavor from the other ingredients...it's THE perfect snack on a day when you've exercised hard and deserve a treat :)
