I was taking stock of my deep freeze this afternoon to make my meal plan for the up coming week, when I found a hidden bag of assorted chopped apples. It was a toss up, make coffee cake, apple muffins or Brown Betty. I set the apples on the kitchen counter and continued with the task at hand. The oldest daughter caught site of the bag of apples. She asked, "Your making a Brown Betty aren't you?!" So a Brown Betty it would be!

Sometimes you just gotta eat desert first!
6-8 apples of your choice
1/2 C brown rice flour
1/2 C oatmeal * see note below
1 C packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 C earth balance softened
2 Tbsp brown flax seed (optional)
2-4 Tbsp water (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place apples in baking dish, No need to grease. If your apples are not golden delish you might want to add 2-4 Tbsp of water.
Combine brown sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon and earth balance. Mix well. I add flax seed to give a little nutty flavor. Bake for 40 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Serve warm. We always eat this with vanilla soy or coconut ice cream. Just to cut the sweet!
