|desert for breakfast...love that!|
Breakfast at our house can sometimes be a bit of a hit and miss. Whilst Junior has happily grown to enjoy a variety of breakfast foods, Mini Hoges still struggles with the idea, claiming "I don't like that" to almost everything I make for him. And that includes those breakfast foods that he loved two days ago.
With a surplus of apples slowly softening in my fridge, I decided to turn them into a healthy breakfast apple crumble.
Breakfast Apple Crumble
12 Apples, peeled, cored and sliced into chunks
2 cinnamon sticks
1 large piece of orange rind
1 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
50 grams of butter
Stew apples with cinnamon and orange rind until they begin to soften. Place in a baking dish.
In a bowl, rub together oats, flour sugar and butter so that the mixture resembles a crumbly texture.
Spread over the top of the apples and bake in a moderate oven for 20 minutes.
Serve the crumble warm or cold with a big dollop of natural vanilla yoghurt.
