I received my Plant-Based Health newsletter this morning, and I could not wait to make this delicious Baked Apple recipe concocted by the very sweet Katherine Lawrence, from whom I took my first Cancer Project course. She is an amazing teacher, cook, and just all-around person. If you don't already get the Plant-Based Health newsletter, you've gotta sign up! It comes to your email once a month, and is packed full of yummy vegan recipes, as well as articles and tips for a healthy vegan lifestyle. Not to mention, it's free!
And, yeah, I know a week or two ago I said I wasn't strictly vegan anymore (because a certain doctor convinced me that I needed to eat dairy and fish or I would die some horrible death of countless vegan-induced afflictions), but a heartfelt re-read of all my Cancer Project literature reminded me why I became vegan in the first place, and that most conventional doctors don't know squat about nutrition. This particular doctor did not know that Spain and Mexico are two separate countries. No, I'm not kidding. Anyway, a month of cheese and fish not only packed an extra ten pounds to my backside, but also made me feel horrible. So, I'm back on the wagon and I'm feeling great! If you have any good doctor stories, I'd love to hear 'em in the comments.
Let's get back to the recipe. I modified Katherine's original recipe just a bit, because I don't have any pecans or aluminum foil on hand and I wanted to pack as much of that good apple fiber into the dish as possible (plus, I love maple syrup), so this is my version, but the original can be found here .
It's perfect for Autumn. I can't wait to try it for breakfast in the morning, and maybe tote it to a few upcoming potlucks... Yum!!
4 apples (I used honeycrisp), thinly sliced 1/4 cup maple syrup (if you can't afford the real deal, try this ) 1/2 cup soy milk 1/3 cup oatmeal 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients, except the apples, in a large bowl until well-blended.
Add the apples to the wet mixture and use a wooden spoon to toss apples until they are well-coated.
