These Baked Apples are so good! They’re perfect for breakfast or dessert!
They have to bake for 30 minutes in the oven, so normally it would be good for a weekend breakfast. But I think a lot of us have extra time on our hands right now.
I have found cooking to be a good way to stop from overeating. Sounds weird right?
I’ve been making recipes that are a little more time consuming than usual. Then when you factor in baking or cooking time, I’ve killed quite a bit of time.
Plus I’m not going to snack while I’m waiting for the food to cook. I don’t want to ruin my appetite.
For these baked apples I used Fuji apples. You can use whatever type of apple you have on hand. I also like using Honey Crisp apples.
I cut the top off of the apples, then used a melon baller to scoop out the center. Just make sure you don’t go all the way down or the oatmeal will fall out. 🙂
If you don’t have a melon baller you can use a spoon.
I used quick oats for the filling. I mixed it with some brown sugar and cinnamon. Then I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spray instead of regular butter.
It took about 8 sprays of the butter, then I mixed it all together.
I then filled the two apples with the oatmeal mixture. Then it was off into the oven for 30 minutes.
Once the apples came out of the oven I used 1 tablespoon of sugar-free caramel sauce, this is totally optional. If you choose to add the caramel sauce it will add an extra point.
Another option is to use fat-free Reddi Wip, which doesn’t add any points.
Yield: 2 servings (1 serving is 0 points for purple, 2 points for blue and green.
- 2 apples (I used Fuji, but any kind will work)
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon brown sugar
- I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spray
- Sugar free caramel sauce (optional – add 1 point for 1 tablespoon)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut the top of the apples off. Use a melon baller or spoon to scrape out the center, don’t go all the way to the bottom.
In a small bowl mix together the oatmeal, brown sugar and cinnamon. Spray 8 times with the butter spray then stir.
Add the oatmeal mixture to the apples. Bake for 30 minutes.
Eat as is or add sugar-free caramel sauce or fat free Reddi Wip.
