Sugar Free Baked Apples: Comfort Food

For each person needing comforting:

1 organic apple, cored

Fill the core with a semi dry oat mixture (during the day soak about 1/2 cup oats to one cup boiling water and add about 2 tbsp organic raisins and 1/4 tsp organic ground cinnamon).

Pour maple syrup on the core to allow it to seep into the oat mix.

Bake in a covered dish at 350 F for about 45 minutes until apples are quite soft.

All of the above items were purchased at Karma Co-op ;) I use irish steel cut oats because these are not contaminated in their facility (as per their website). The question as to whether oats contain gluten has not been answered clearly so I use this product moderately.
