Healthy Baked Apples


  • 2 large apples, cut in half and cored 
  • 2 T brown sugar 
  • 1/4 c quick oats 
  • pinch of cinnamon 
  • olive oil 
  • optional: whip cream or vanilla ice cream 


  1. Preheat oven to 350º. 
  2. Cut apples in half and remove core and seeds with a small pairing knife or spoon. 
  3. In a small bowl combine brown sugar and oats. 
  4. Spray/rub apple halves with olive oil, then spoon on top of the apple halves and sprinkle with cinnamon. 
  5. Place on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. 
  6. Serve warm with fat free whipped cream or low fat ice cream. 

I have a serious love of apple pie, but NOT the calories associated with it! It can be 400-600 calories a SLICE! Ugh. That doesn't count the ice cream or whip cream that must accompany it! With a 1/4c whip cream on each, these weigh in at 96 calories each! Without the whip cream, you could slice these up and eat them for breakfast! Deeeeelicious!
