Apples in season!

Apples are at their peak, and it will soon be time for my favorite: honeycrisps.

When the weather turns cold and you are craving that sweet, baked yummy {insert here: cookie, cinnamon roll, pie}, here's an alternative...

Get an apple slicer and cut your apple into wedges. It'll be one apple per serving so make as many as you like.
Line a muffin pan with aluminum foil (this step is only necessary if you hate cleaning pans like I do)
Place the sliced, cored apple wedges in one of the muffin "holes"
Stir up a quick mix of chopped walnuts, oatmeal, a tiny bit of Agave sweetner and a tablespoon of water. Cinnamon, nutmeg and all apple pie spices are nice additions. Put a couple tablespoons of the mixture on top of each sliced apple.
Bake at 350 degrees about 40 minutes. Less for crisper apples, more for softer.

Serve. Ice cream will kill the healthy part of this recipe, but it's better than ice cream with pie. :)

The house will smell amazing.
