Chef Courtney Contos with www.chefcontos.com joins us with a recipe for a delicious, healthy fall dessert.
Spiced Apple & Maple Cobbler
2 pounds apples (about 6)
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (if not using fresh grated use less)
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup oat bran
1/3 rolled oats (not instant)
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 melted butter or canola oil
Garnish with whipped cream and apples chips
1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Peel half of the apples (I like to leave some apple with skin on for flavor and texture). Cut all the apples into roughly 1/2 inch pieces and place in mixing bowl. Add nutmeg and mix well. Place apple mixture into desired baking dish such as a pie dish, casserole pan, or 1 cup ball jars.
Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees. Thinly slice apples and place nearly touching each other on silpat lined sheet tray. Bake slices in middle of oven until pale golden and beginning to crisp, about 1 1/2 hours. Immediately peel chips off pad and cool on a rack.
