Kitchen Central Ep. 5 | Sweetened Apple Pie Oatmeal

In this season finale of Kitchen Central, Sarah and Emily show us how to make sweetened apple pie oatmeal! Another great, sweet recipe for a gathering or a snack! 2 tart or sweet apples (peeled, cored and evenly sliced) 1 tsp honey/maple syrup (add extra while cooking oats if desired) 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (add extra for optional topping at the end) 1 tsp lemon juice 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats  1 cup water 1 cup of milk (or dairy-free option) 1 pinch salt 4 whole dates (finely chopped) - Can also use ¼ cup of raisins or any dried fruit Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and toss apples with lemon juice, cinnamon and honey. Bake for 5 minutes then roll over parchment paper and tuck it in and fold the edges so they're in a "pocket" to trap in moisture. Cook for 10-15 minutes more (20 minutes total) until soft. Set aside. In a small saucepan over high heat, add oats, pinch salt, water and milk (or almond milk) and stir. Optionally, you can also add cinnamon and maple syrup to the cooking oats. When it comes to a boil, reduce to low-medium heat and cook until thick and creamy. Add the chopped dates (or dried fruit) a few minutes after you reduce the heat so they can soften and sweeten the oats. Once thick, remove from stove top. Add a little milk if it's too thick for your liking. Arrange 1/3 cup baked apples in a serving bowl along with the cooking oatmeal. Other toppings may include, walnuts, nut butter, cranberries, flaxseed, honey, maple syrup, or cinnamon. Recipe courtesy of Minimalist Baker Thanks for watching!
