- 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon dried cranberries
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 medium apples (Fuji or Honeycrisp)
- 1 cup hot water
- 4 teaspoons butter
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a small bowl, combine oatmeal, cinnamon, dried cranberries and honey.
- Slice each apple in half with a paring knife and remove stems. Using a spoon or melon baller, scoop out seeds and create a rounded hole in each apple half’s center.
- Stuff each apple with 1 to 1½ tablespoons oatmeal mixture. Arrange apple halves in a 8-by-8 baking dish and pour 1 cup of hot water into the bottom of the dish. Top each apple half with 1 teaspoon butter, then loosely wrap dish with foil.
- Bake for 20 minutes and remove foil. Bake another 5 to 10 minutes, until apples turn soft and oatmeal is fully cooked.
- Remove from oven and serve warm.
