Baked Apple Goodness

As you saw from my recent post I do love eating apples as a late night snack. But I also enjoy is as a low calorie dessert option and one that takes less than 5 min to prepare! I have a huge sweet tooth and when I need to satisfy that craving I try and opt for something on the healthier side. There is no reason to deprive yourself from sweets but you do need to have them in moderation and pick the best options when possible. If your at home then you have no excuse because you have a lot more options than if you were at a restaurant given the choices of either a creme brulee or cheesecake. If you’re not a baker or don’t have the time to make something healthy instead of reaching for a fudge bar then you’ll love this recipe.

It’s very simple and this is all you need: (add or take away ingredients depending on the size of apples or number of guests you are serving)

  • 4 apples
  • 1/2 tbs of soft butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2- 1 cup of old fashioned oats
  • 1 -2 tbs of organic brown sugar
  • 1 tbs of chopped almonds or pecans (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to about 350 degrees
  2. In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients and mash them with a fork
  3. Next wash your apples and cut out the core to hallow them out for the filling
  4. Then you want to stuffed the apples with your oat mixture equally
  5. Lay down some parchment paper onto a cooking sheet and pop them in the oven for about 20-30 min
