Apple pie, minus the crust! Similar to the Apple Cobbler (Hold the Cobbler!) I shared last week, but with a juicy sauce instead of a sticky, doughy coating.

This is perfect if you have a bunch of apples you need to use up – or if you’re feeling too lazy to mess with a crust. Though these apples are delicious on their own (hot OR cold!), they also make an awesome topping for ice cream, pancakes, waffles, or a piece of toast (preferably sweet bread!).

Or mix a bit in with your morning oatmeal, juices and all. APPLE PIE FOR BREAKFAST!

 

Apple Pie Insides

Ingredients

6 medium-sized apples, cut into slices 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 vanilla bean (or a teaspoon vanilla extract)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
a dash of allspice
2 tablespoons margarine, cut into small pieces

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400F. After you’ve cleaned and peeled the apples, cut them into slices about 1/4″ thick. Consistency is more important than the size; try to cut them as evenly as possible so that they bake at the same rate. The thicker the slices, of course, the longer the bake time!

2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, save for the margarine; mix well.

3. Transfer the apples to a 9″x9″ baking dish. Dot with the margarine. Bake, uncovered at 400F for about 45 minutes, or until the apples are soft and tender. Stir halfway through so that all the apples bake evenly.

4. Enjoy warm: on their own, as topping in the world’s healthiest ice cream sundae, or in a bowl of morning oatmeal. Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge and use within a week. They reheat well in the microwave – make a batch for breakfast the night before!

    Delish! I make something similar on the stove, only I don’t use a recipe. It’s the best oatmeal mix-in on a chilly morning!

    I swear I’ve had oatmeal for breakfast every morning for at least the past year.

    I keep wondering when I’ll finally get sick of it, but … too tired to think in the morning!
