1.5 cups skim milk
1.5 cups water
2 cups egg whites
1 tsp stevia

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Then, cut tops off apples, core, and scoop out remaining insides. Place apples in baking dish, then melt butter in a small microwaveable safe dish and set aside. Combine stevia and cinnamon in a separate dish and set aside.
2. While oven heats, add water and milk to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add oats and apple insides and reduce to a simmer until oats have absorbed all liquid. Then, turn heat even lower and add egg whites to pot and whisk continuously *important step* for 1-2 mins.
3. Brush apples with melted butter, sprinkle evenly with cinnamon stevia mixture, and fill apples with oatmeal. Bake for 35 mins. Then remove from oven, top with pecans, and enjoy!
