somebody pinch me
So this thing most people call “fall” might have finally arrived in Texas!
Today’s high, my friends, HIGH is 75. That is huge for us. Considering that has been our normal low and the high has been around 92.
75 degrees…I will take that.
It is supposed to last a few days before we slowing start inching our way up to the 80’s again.
Are you kidding me???
Somebody pinch me. I must be dreaming.
So you know what this means? I can finally eat hot oatmeal again.
Praise the Lord.
Can I get an Amen?
Baked Apple Oatmeal
2 cups rolled oats
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk (I used organic vanilla almond milk)
2 egg whites
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup raisins (optional. I was out of raisins this time around)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tsp apple pie spice
1 cup diced apple
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large bowl combine oatmeal, baking powder and salt. Mix in remaining ingredients; stir and pour into a greased 8 x 8 baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into bars.
Do you prefer apple or pumpkin this time of year?
Apple for me. Definitely apple!
