I thought it about time that I share one of my all-time favorite easy recipes… don’t you agree?
These baked apples are surprisingly healthy (under 150 calories per serving) and SO easy to make. I actually made them last night and it took me a grand total of five minutes to prep them. And that’s while I was watching the newest season of Peaky Blinders (so good!!!). And texting my friend. And doing laundry.
What? I’m a multitasking master.
Moving on. I highly recommend serving this dish hot and with vanilla ice cream (because vanilla ice cream makes everything better). This recipe makes four servings (but, since each serving is so low-calorie, you can actually eat two servings, guilt-free!) and it is totally vegetarian-friendly and kid-friendly.
For this baked apples recipe, I definitely recommend using large red apples (Gala and Honeycrisp work the best!). But let’s just cut to the chase already, shall we?
This dish is so yum AND surprisingly healthy. Each serving is under 150 calories, giving you plenty of wiggle room for a heaping side of vanilla ice cream (exactly how I recommend serving them!).
- 2 large red apples, cut in half and cores removed
- 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons of flour
- 4 tablespoons of quick oats
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- Begin by preheating the oven to 350°F (175°C) and spraying the underside of a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
- Place the apple halves in the crevices of the bottom of the muffin tin.
- In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, flour, and quick oats and mix well.
- Spoon the mixture onto the apple halves and sprinkle the apples with some cinnamon.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm.
