The results are in!

In the month of October, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we pledged to donate 25% of proceeds from our online Weekly Meal Prep orders to The Pink Fund. This amazing organization provides financial assistance to breast cancer patients. 

Well, with your help, we were able to generate over $500! Thank you so much for your support, we are so proud of what we have accomplished together! 

What other organizations or causes would you like to see Eat Suite support? Feel free to comment here or send us an email at EatSuite@gmail.com, we look forward to hearing from you!

Oatmeal Stuffed Baked Apples

Prep Time: 2 hours      Cook Time: 30-60 min     Yield: 4 large or 6 small servings

 WHAT YOU NEED

  • 3 firm apples 
    • Honeycrisp, Fuji, or Braeburn if you like 'em sweet
    • Gala, Granny Smith, or Jonagolds if you like 'em tart
  • 2 cups steel cut oats (rinsed, soaked for 2 hours, then drained)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • zest of 1 mandarin (optional...if you're feeling zesty!)
  • 7 Medjool dates, chopped
  • 2 tbs ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I got for walnuts or pecans) 
  • 2 cups vanilla almond milk (or plain milk + 1 tsp vanilla bean) 
  • pure maple syrup or raw honey for drizzling

 

WHAT TO DO

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. Wash and core your apples. If you don't have a corer, like me, use a paring knife and cut a 1" square around the center of the apple from the top and bottom. Then push the cut portion out through the top. 

  3. In a large mixing bowl, add your dry ingredients and mix well. Then add the soaked (but fully drained) oats and milk and mix until well combined.

  4. Put your apples in a deep baking dish greased lightly with butter. Mmmmmm.

  5. Fill each apple with the mixture and then spoon all of what's leftover around the apples. Pack it all down too. 

  6. Place dish on the center rack of your oven, uncovered. If your apples are small, they'll probably take about 30 minutes to bake. If they are large, they could take close to 1 hour. Peek in on them around the 30 minute mark. You'll know they're ready by how they smell and look, how easily a knife penetrates through the apple, and whether or not the oats have soaked up all the liquid and are set in the dish. 

Get creative with how you enjoy this dish. It could easily be part of a dessert as well! Have fun!
