As I delved into the backlog of bookmarked recipes for something to make for breakfast this week I came across (never home)maker’s Apple Oat Bars. The concept for the recipe is great but I tweaked it a bunch and came up with my own spin.
Kim’s Adapted Apple Oat Bread
3 apples, any kind
2 cups AP flour
1 cup oats
2 tbsp. ground flax seed
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 tbsp. sugar
3 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup canola oil
2/3 cup greek yogurt
Start by peeling, coring, and cubing your apples. Reserve half for applesauce and the other half to put in the batter.
Get your applesauce going: heat half of your apples, one pinch of cinnamon, and about a half cup of water over high heat. Boil together until the water is absorbed/the apples are mushy.
Combine all of your dry ingredients thoroughly.
Stir in your wet ingredients.
Add in your applesauce (make sure it has cooled down a bit before tossing it in here) and mix.
Add in your greek yogurt and mix.
Finally, add in your apples and mix.
Pour your batter into a greased glass baking dish and bake on 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, rotating halfway through.
Like all breakfast bread, I enjoy a piece of this each morning with a cup of cold milk and a mug of hot tea. Appley!
