Yield: 2 servings

1 crisp apple
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
½ to 1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup rolled oats
Pinch salt

Wash and dry apple; core, quarter and slice into ¼-inch-thick pieces. Set aside.

In cast iron or other heavy skillet, melt butter, peanut butter and honey over low heat, stirring to combine. Once completely melted and combined, add apples and stir to coat each piece. Add cinnamon, oats and salt. Mix together. Cover, increase heat to medium-low, stirring frequently. Cook for 5 minutes or until apples are cooked through. Remove from heat, stir and serve warm, by itself or over ice cream.

Increase honey by 1 tablespoon and replace peanut butter with 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Follow recipe instructions above.
