Mom's Apple Brown Betty
4 or 5 red delicious apples (peeled and cut into medium sized chunks)
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon arrowroot powder
4 tablespoons soy margarine (melted)
2 cups oats (quick or regular)
1 cup pecans (coarsely chopped)
1/2 to 3/4 cup of organic cane sugar or Turbinado sugar (depending on how sweet you want
it; use less if you're trying to watch your sugar intake)
Combine oats, pecans, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and the melted soy margarine in a bowl.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a separate bowl, peel apples and cut them into medium-sized chunks and then add the arrowroot powder (mixed with about 1 teaspoon water).
Pour apples into a 2 quart or 2 1/2 quart baking dish. Pour the oat mixture on top (spread evenly), and bake for 1 hour.
You have the option to bake it covered for the entire hour OR you can bake it for 20 minutes uncovered and then cover for the final 40 minutes.
Let cool for a little while then dig in! Delicious!
