I swear this is apple pie without the crust! I was craving an apple pie – but… make an apple pie, eat an apple pie. Probably not too good for the physique! So I scoured the Internet for recipes that were fairly healthy and this one fit the bill perfectly!
This recipe is by SkinnyTaste.com a great resource for recipes. This recipe comes together quickly, bakes for about 30 minutes (and makes your house smell amazing!) – We serve with a small scoop of ice cream. Really one half of a baked apple is plenty.
Delightfully Baked Apples
2 large apples (use whatever you’ve got), cut them in half, remove the core/seeds
2 tablespoons butter (not margarine)
2 tablespoons brown sugar, Unpacked (can use less)
2 tablespoons unbleached all purpose flour (can use GLUTEN FREE)
4 tablespoons oats (recipe calls for quick oats, I only had Old Fashioned and they worked fine)
Cinnamon, just a dab (add more if you like, I did)
Oven to 350℉.
Cut apples in half, remove seeds and core
In a small bowl combing the butter, brown sugar, flour, oats and cinnamon – then spread the mixture on top of the apple halves (I spread with my fingers right to the edges) – sprinkle with more cinnamon if you like.
Place on a cookie sheet (I covered mine in foil for a no-cleanup option) – bake for 30 minutes.
Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream if you like!
Catch you back here tomorrow!
