Easy Baked Apples

When the air outside gets that first hint cool crisp feel, we feel the urge to jog through some crunchy leaves and bust out the apples and cinnamon! At Progressive Athletics, we can’t help ourselves. Our love of working out is second only to our love of food.

Apple-baked oatmeal is an easy delicious dessert. Brown sugar and cinnamon oats bake inside cored apples is the perfect way to welcome September!  Each serving bring  a couple servings carbohydrates and one serving of fats.  The best way to enjoy this early fall favorite is to sit and mindfully and enjoy it – guilt free!
