This could be done in the microwave also!

Loved it - tastes great, super easy, healthy dessert!

This is a great dessert (or even breakfast addition) that smells and tastes SO good, my class couldn't believe how little sugar was in it.  I will definitely make this one again.

I serve this at schools, and since we have to make it the day before, I serve it cold. The kids love it! I've served it with yogurt and they thought it was like having dessert. Very tasty. Sunflower seeds or nuts can be added for a protein boost.

When serving with yogurt, did you pre mix this in with yogurt or serve the yogurt on the side?? 

When serving with yogurt, I just added a dollop on top of the apples without mixing it in.

This is a great healthy dessert option!  Kids really like it!

As Erin mentioned in an earlier comment, this recipe can be pre-made and served cold. Since the Food Hero Overnight Oatmeal is served cold, using the apples as a topping makes for a great mix of two easy to prepare, yummy recipes!

Instead of raisins, try using CRANBERRIES... ooo, sweet & tart... and local!!
