Baked Apples

Not toot my own horn but I make a mean crisp... apple, peach, rhubarb... I can crisp it all! Unfortunately, this tasty treat is loaded with tons sugar and butter. So I went forward to making it healthier and cleaner :) The end result is still tasty but fully satisfying!


4 baking apples, cored (I used granny smith)
1 cup quick oats
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons cinnamon 
2 1/2 pats of cold butter, cubed (mine was frozen)
1/3 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add cored apples to a smaller baking dish. In a small bowl, combine oats, honey, cinnamon and butter. The mixture will be crumbly and that is perfect. Stuff the mixture into the core of each apple. With any remaining oat goodness pack onto the top of each apple. Pour water onto the bottom of the dish so that it surrounds the apples. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until apples are soft but not mush. 

Easily enjoyed with only 255 calories and 5 grams of fat per apple. Bon Appetit!
