Apple Cobbler: the quick and healthy way

Last night I made tacos for dinner. Not very ambitious, and more concerned about setting up our new Wii and Wii fit, to be honest!
I also painted the front door, which is my current house project. It used to be a medium oak color, and I am painting it white. It is taking forever to dry, so it is turning into a week long project to get enough coats on there. I will post pictures later.

Now for the "recipe":
1 apple (I prefer galas or pink ladies for this)
spray "butter"
oatmeal (about 3 T)

1. Set oven to 425 F.
2. I cut up the apple with an apple corer, then cut each slice in half after that (length wise). I arranged them in a very small pyrex dish.
3. Spray lightly with the spray butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and splenda.
4. Cook this in the microwave on high heat for 6 minutes.
5. Remove from microwave, add just enough oatmeal to lightly top the apples (I used about 3 T). Sprinkle a little more cinnamon on top. (I also think this would work if you just dumped a low sugar maple and brown sugar oatmeal on it!)
6. Put this in your preheated oven for 7 minutes.
7. Enjoy! If you really want some yum factor, add just a little vanilla frozen yogurt or fat free no sug. added ice cream. Even my husband loved this!!
