For my Nature’s Pride recipe I decided to use one of the most delicious and healthy fruits of Fall, apples! (I was given a Nature’s Pride coupon for the bread through Foodbuzz.)
I started with a simple, local apple.
I peeled it and chopped it.
And tossed it into a bowl with a little stevia and a cinnamon.
While that was sitting, I got started on my bread. I chose Nature’s Pride 12 grain, but any variety would do.
Then I started rolling each piece of bread to flatten it out.
And I pressed my cookie cutter through the bread to make a circle. I then cut the circle in half and placed it in a muffin tin, to make a little cup.
Then I filled each cup with the apples. I topped each “blossom” a mixture of oats, almonds, a few sprays of butter and some brown sugar.
Baked at 425 for about 15 minutes, until they turned golden brown and the bread crust got a little cruncyh like toast.
And we dug in! We were missing some vanilla bean ice cream…next time.
