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?
- 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.
