Lunch is served!

Ahhh, salad. The ubiquitous term for all things healthy thrown together in one bowl, topped with whatever catches our eye (or our tastebuds), drizzled with a bit of dressing and devoured. It’s like sitting down to eat a big bowl of health.

Delightfully Baked Apples – this is a quick and easy recipe – Apple pie without the crust!

Ready to pop into the oven!

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 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.

Fresh out of the oven!

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!
