We have been making baked apples for as long as I can remember. Growing up on my parent's farm, we often had tons and tons of apples (if the apples grew well that year). We would mostly eat them plain because we all love apples. Or we would make apple sauce to can or freeze. Mom would make apple pies for the holidays. The other recipe we made with Dad's homegrown apples is baked apples.

I love baked apples because even if you use no sugar or very little sugar, they are still very sweet and tasty because the apple itself is sweet and when you cook it, it tastes even sweeter. I got the idea last year to stuff apples with oatmeal for a delicious breakfast treat and they turned out so well!

I chose to use braeburn apples because they are so pretty and are large enough to scoop out and fill with plenty of oatmeal. Golden delicious apples or honeycrisp work really well in this recipe as well. If you want, you can cut back on the sugar in the recipe but I wanted something that tasted like dessert despite being quite healthy.
