There are several things that I love about this easy baked apple recipe. First, it’s so simple to make – so much so that it’s a fun recipe to make with kids! And it reminds me of fun fall days, picking apples with my family with leaves turning yellow, brown and red on the trees all around us. Best of all, it’s delicious! The topping is like a soft fruity oatmeal cookie on a bed of warm baked apple. It’s fantastic served right out of the oven by itself, or with a little whipped cream or ice cream if you like. And it’s also great for breakfast with a dollop of greek yogurt.
