The healthy Autumn pie

Autumn is & always has been my favourite time of year. I love the weather getting colder, the cosy foods & even the darker nights. I live for jumpers, scarves & definitely any foods which involves autumnal flavours. Apple & Cinnamon is definitely my favourite, but, as I’m currently trying to watch my weight (too many pizzas over the summer) I wanted to create a healthy(ish) recipe of an apple pie/crumble/cobbler hybrid.

After looking at some different recipes on Pinterest, I eventually merged a couple of my favourites, to create something that tastes amazing, has all healthy ingredients & won’t make you feel too bad when you eat it! This will make enough for 4 or 2 large portions.

 Ingredients

·         2 large Apples (Scrumptious or gala are naturally sweeter than green apples)

·         3 heaped tablespoons of rolled oats

·         Teaspoon of cornstarch

·         2 tablespoons of Maple Syrup

·         Tablespoon of honey

·         1 tablespoon of melted butter

·         Flat tablespoon of wholewheat flour

·         Sprinkle of cinnamon for the oats

·         Teaspoon of Apple pie seasoning or (1/3 tspn of cinnamon/1/3 tspn of Nutmeg/1/3 tspn of all spice)

Method

·         Slice the apples into cubes.

1

·         Then mix in the Cornstarch, Apple pie seasoning / spices in with the apples.

3

·         Mix the melted butter, sprinkle of cinnamon & maple syrup into the rolled oats. This should make the oats into a sticky consistency.

2

·         Put the oats onto the apple mix & flatten/press flat with the back of a spoon. Then drizzle the honey over the top and spread it over the crumb.

4

·         Once its ready, pop it in the oven at 180 degrees for 40 mins. (your kitchen will also smell amazing while it cooks!)

6

·         This tastes amazing both warm & cold, so enjoy however you want!
