So I've finally started a food blog. It took me forever to decide the subject of my first post but finally... it's here! Since it's Easter holidays, I'm sure many of us are indulging a bit more than we should. Here's my alternative to unhealthy sweets - apple crumble with rolled oats. It's sweet and tasty and you can eat it as a snack between meals without feeling guilty about adding unnecessary kilojoules to your day.

Apple crumble with rolled oats
1kg Granny Smith apples
1 tsp ground cinnamon
4 whole cloves
2 tbs raw sugar
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup water
1 tbs polyunsaturated margarine spread
1/4 cup sultanas
Peel and core the apples then cut into wedges. In a saucepan add 1 cup of water, apples, cinnamon, cloves and sugar. Simmer on low heat until the apples are tender. In a separate saucepan, melt the margarine. Add in the rolled oats and coat them in the melted margarine. Spread the cooked apples in a round pie dish then sprinkle the rolled oats on top until the apples are completely covered. Sprinkle the sultanas on top of the oats. If you like, you can sprinkle a bit more cinnamon on top for more flavour. Bake in a fan forced oven at 180ºC until the oats are golden and toasted.
