Baked apples are the perfect way to satisfy your apple pie cravings without all the work.
This baked apples recipe is a healthier twist on this delectable fall treat.
You start with whole apples, which you’ll core to remove the tough center (and seeds). The centers of the apple will then get stuffed with a delicious combination of oats, cinnamon and other fall spices.
A bit of brown sugar and butter keep things slightly traditional, and then into the oven they go. Now doesn’t that sound a lot easier than pie?
These baked apples are delicious on their own, but for faux apple pie a la mode, you could also serve with a scoop of thick Greek yogurt or reduced-fat frozen yogurt.
