Well pregnancy insomnia has plagued me again. I have been up since 3:15am (to pee of course) and have been up ever since. Now my alarm goes off in 45 minutes so I doubt I will be sleeping again tonight. Urgh!
So I figured I would do a quick post on some more desserts I have been eating recently. We all know it's apple season (yeah). My grandmother went up to North Georgia a couple of weeks ago and brought back some apples and gave us a few (we just went last weekend and I will post about that when I get those pictures uploaded). So I decided to introduce Hope to Baked Apples. This is something my mom introduced me to a long time ago and I doctored it up some since then. It's pretty easy and very fast.
You start with your apple, chopped up in a bowl. Here I am using a Mutsu apple, but really anyone you like will work.
Next I added 2 teaspoons of Earth Balance (or butter if you prefer), a handful of raisins and a dash of cinnamon. Two minutes in the microwave (or until apples become soft) and that's it. I then added some Kashi GoLean Crunch, because I like a little crunch in everything I eat and a splash of agave nectar and here is my finished product.
Hope was not impressed with the idea of cooked fruit (like her father), but I loved it! A nice way to finish off the end or would make a great snack. Yum!
