Introducing Mom's Apple Cobbler, a delicious nutritious apple treat! As the name suggests, this is my Mom's fabulous recipe, and I'm passing it on to you to share the apple love. Use a good baking apple for this recipe. Apples that work well in baked dishes are softer and grainier with a higher moisture content. Varieties that aren't as great for eating raw (if you favor crunchy, tart apples) are excellent for baking. The recipe below fills an 8×8 glass baking pan.
- About 6 to 8 medium-sized apples
- Cinnamon & extra sugar for sprinkling over apples in step 2 below
- 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
- 3/4 to 1 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 to 1 cup flour (I use gluten-free flour)
- 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- Grease glass baking pan with butter or oil.
- Wash & slice apples into the pan. I leave the skins on.
- Sprinkle cinnamon and a little sugar over apples. I use coconut sugar.
- Melt butter or coconut oil, and add sugar, oats and flour to melted butter or oil. Mix well.
- Add chopped walnuts to the butter-sugar-oat-flour mixture if you're using nuts.
- Drop globs of the mixture on top of the apples. You don't need to cover it completely – drop it like a biscuit dough and leave some spaces for heat to escape.
- Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 45 to 60 minutes, until it's bubbly and the topping starts to brown.
Enjoy Mom's Apple Cobbler warm for breakfast or dessert. It's great on its own and also delicious with a little side of chocolate or ice cream.
