Celebrate the start of fall with our favorite apple recipes. This month, we’re partnering with Sara Forte of Sprouted Kitchen to share tips, insights and recipes featuring fall’s favorite fruit.
Does that seem odd to you? Let’s deconstruct the apple crisp: There are baked apples, oats, brown sugar … sounds a lot like your morning oatmeal, right? That’s why apple crisp translates so well to breakfast with a few minor tweaks that take it from late-night dessert to early-morning delight. When baked, the apples soften and sweeten and make for a warm, unique change for breakfast.

As for your apple of choice, a good baking apple needs to be both sweet and tart. Consider Gravenstein, Jonagold, Braeburn or Cameo because they are easy to find, or Granny Smith in a pinch. There are many other apple varieties if you shop at a farmers market, and the farmer or clerk should be able to point you towards a good baking choice.
Because they take 45 minutes in the oven, and because they are fine to sit overnight, this recipe is great to make the evening prior. A quick warm in the oven in the AM, stir your yogurt topping, and breakfast is ready in 10 minutes. The apples can also be cored and stuffed in advance and baked off in the morning, if you have a bit more time.
