With fall approaching, it’s hard to stave off the craving for pie. But, now you don’t have to! These two recipe ideas will give you that warm, comforting feeling of pie without all the butter.
Oatmeal is always a great blank canvass for yummy flavors, especially apple pie! Eating oatmeal in the morning is especially good for you because the oats expand in your stomach, making you feel fuller for longer, and adding cinnamon to them is a wonderful way to boost your metabolism. All you have to do is cook your oats like normal, but after you add the liquid, put in a teaspoon of cinnamon, some diced apples, and a pinch of nutmeg. This will let the apples cook slightly and give you that apple pie feeling every morning!
Baked apples are a great way not only to get your apple a day but to make them even sweeter and yummier naturally! All you have to do is core your apple, put it on a baking sheet, and bake at 400 F until it’s nice a soft. Sprinkle over some cinnamon and a bit of honey if you want to amp up the sweetness and you have the perfect snack or dessert!
