Notes from Chef Kimberly:
This recipe was sent to me by our very amazing Educational Director, Coach Valerie. I've made it two different ways- one baked like this, and the other I let it sit in a crockpot overnight on low for about 8 hours. I like to quadruple this recipe and save the rest for later. There is something extremely comforting about waking up to my home smelling like cinnamon and nutmeg, and snuggling up for a brief ten mintues with a warm breakfast.
When I went home over the last break, I got to visit with my mother, who is doing the program with me. (Side Note: she's already converted over 50 pounds of fat into energy!!!!!! I was so happy to see her glowing.) One of the BEST things about doing the program with her is that we swap our favorite recipes. As a child, she used to make me these baked apples in a crockpot- and I feel so happy every time I smell my house full of nutmet and cinnamon, reminding me of her. I hope everyone has the joy of sharing this journey with people they love. As we build our networks, we make small but real steps towards a happy healthy world.
