I was in search for inspiration for a fall apple dish and thought of my Mom. Growing up, my Mom would make baked apples for dessert quite often. She would slice the apples up and toss them with maple syrup, vanilla, and tons of cinnamon. They are simple, delicious, and a much healthier option than most desserts out there.
As a self proclaimed chocoholic, I am always looking for recipes that highlight dark chocolate. In this recipe, instead of using semisweet chocolate chips, I roughly chop a dark chocolate bar. By doing so, the end result is a cookie packed with chocolate. The oats are just enough to give this cookie a chewy consistency and a slight health benefit, if you’re looking for that in your sweet treats.
