  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup quick oats

Cinnamon Apples with Vanilla Ice Cream

Makes 2 servings

2 apples
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup oat and honey granola
2 scoops of vanilla ice cream

1. Wash, peel, core and cut apples into wedges or chunks as desired
2. Coat apple pieces with brown sugar and cinnamon
3. Melt butter in non stick pan over medium heat
