We like to use green Granny Smith apples in sweet recipes to add some tartness. If you have a sensitive palette or don’t like your breakfast dishes to be tart, try using regular red Gala apples and let us know how it turns out.
Don’t use instant oats for this, or really any recipe. All of the nutrients have been processed out, which is why they cook so quickly. Steel cut oats are the best. They’re chewier and more filling. Regular rolled oats are the next best, but they don’t stick to your ribs for nearly as long.
Amelia doesn’t have a sweet tooth like I do so she left out the brown sugar. It was way too tart for me (and probably the rest of humanity) so I added a tablespoon of brown sugar to mine. That sweetened it up just enough to balance the tartness.
