Author Notes

You can eat it cold or warm (I prefer warm), with a dollop of greek yogurt or just as is. Since there isn’t too much sugar added, the natural tartness of the apples stands out. And the best thing about this dish is that it fits nicely in both the breakfast and dessert category. —Vicky | Things I Made Today
