Roasted apple grape oatmealIngredients

3 large Gala apples, cored and cut into large wedges
1 big bunch red seedless grapes
1 cup rolled oats
2 cups water


Heat oven to 400 degrees. Put apples and grapes on a baking dish and roast for 45 minutes, until apples are tender and grapes have begun to shrink and concentrate.

Meanwhile, make oatmeal. Bring water to a boil in saucepan. Stir in oats. Turn heat down to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes.

When fruit is done, run through a food mill to remove all of the skin.

Pour oatmeal and pureed fruit into the food processor or blender and puree.
