Apple Crisp Baked Oatmeal

Apple Crisp Baked Oatmeal

This month’s #ImprovCookingChallenge is to use oatmeal and honey in a recipe. Apple Crisp is one of my favorite desserts and I really wanted to turn it into a healthy oatmeal breakfast option. I thought this challenge was the perfect opportunity for me to experiment and come up with a recipe. I decided on Apple Crisp Baked Oatmeal. I adore Apple Crisp, but it’s a bit sinful for regular consumption, so I wanted to come up with something that had that flavor but a bit more healthy. Since Apple Crisp has oatmeal, and apples go wonderfully with honey, this seemed perfect.
