Stove to Oven Apple Crumble Dessert

One night, after a delicious supper of leftovers, Hungry and I were craving something else. We had a fridge full of goodies so the world was our oyster. What did we want for dessert? More than just a square of chocolate. What about making something? What about pairing Hungry’s cooking skills with Fit’s baking skills? Yes! Sounds like the right way to go. We had plenty of apples and I always like to add a topping, so we created an apple crumble dessert! This recipe was so fun, but also relatively un-intimidating and simple to do: we cooked on the stove and then baked to finish it in the oven. If you can, grab a partner to make this lovely dessert with you in the kitchen!

It was a lot of fun to cook and bake together, especially when it’s a relatively healthy dessert recipe. It’s just apples, a little butter and sugar, and oats! We enjoyed every last bite while watching some of our favorite Food Network shows. The marscapone isn’t a necessity, but it is stunning with it–absolutely completes it as it melts into the apple. This recipe didn’t take much time and for most of the prep and cooking, you actually don’t need to pay constant attention. The apples cook themselves and then once you get it into the oven, it’s almost ready. Cooking and baking are not only creative hobbies, but they are activities you can do with others! This one definitely put a smile on our faces–it’s a keeper. Use this recipe to stay hungry and fit!
