Easy Baked Apples

This Easy Baked Apples recipe is filled with a cinnamon streusel topping makes a favorite fall dessert! Serve warm with a dollop of low point vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of sugar free caramel sauce for a mouth watering treat!

Servings: Makes 6 ( 1/2 baked apple) servings

What Ingredients do I need to make these Easy Baked Apples?

  • Apples- cut in half. I like to use Honey Crisp apples, but any firm and sweet apple should work such as: Fuji, Ambrosia, Pink Lady. 
  • Old Fashioned rolled oats- not quick oats. I like to use Trader Joe’s Toasted Old Fashioned Rolled Oats. 
  • Zero point brown sugar sweetener- I like to use Lakanto Monkfruit Golden Sweetener.  
  • All purpose flour– you can substitute that for whole wheat, almond flour, or gluten free flour. 
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Light butter- cold and cut into pieces. You can either use the light butter such as: “Land O ‘ Lakes light butter made with canola oil or ” I can’t believe it’s not butter” found in the tub or ” I can’t believe it’s not butter” baking sticks.

What sweetener do I use?

I use LAKANTO CLASSIC MONKFUIT SWEETENER and LAKANTO GOLDEN MONKFRUIT SWEETENER in my baking recipes.

The “Classic” is a zero point white granulated sugar substitute. The “Golden” is a zero point brown sugar substitute.  

Lakanto MonkFruit Sweetener is a zero glycemic, zero calorie and all natural sugar substitute. It is by far the best tasting sugar alternative and has zero aftertaste or gritty texture like some of the sugar alternatives have.

Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar-so if you were to use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the measurement that would be equal to real sugar. If you use a different sugar alternative you’ll want to check the point value on the brand you use. They can vary in points.

What low point ice cream do I like to serve with these?

I love Halo Top vanilla bean or Enlightened vanilla Ice Cream. These ice cream brands are high in protein and lower in points than most ice cream. You can order these ice creams online or find the nearest store locations by clicking the buttons below:

How do I make these Easy Baked Apples?

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cut the apples in half lengthwise and use a small spoon to scoop the seeds and core out.

Using the spoon, scoop out the center of the halves a little more to form a small cavity.

Place apples into a large baking dish. Set aside

In a medium bowl, stir together oats, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon.

Add 3 Tbsp light butter and work it in until crumbly, using a fork or pastry cutter.

Mix until crumbly.

Spoon the oat mixture evenly into the centers of the apples. 

Drizzle the tops of the apples with melted light butter.

The melted light butter helps keep the apples moist and tender as they bake. 

Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes. 

Uncover and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until tender. 

Serve with dollop of cool whip or low point vanilla ice cream and/or sugar free caramel sauce, if desired for additional points! 

Enjoy!

Do not use the WW nutritional calculator to calculate points. The nutritional calculator does take zero point food ingredients into consideration and will not be accurate. Personal Point values and nutritional information are estimated and calculated using the brand of ingredients listed in the recipe. PersonalPoints values may vary depending on the brand of ingredients used and depending on your customized zero point foods list. To accurately calculate the Personal Point value on a recipe you will need to enter the ingredients in the WW app recipe builder by going to the top bar in your WW App and selecting “My Foods” then when you are in my foods select “Recipes” then click “Create” in top corner, this is where you will build the recipe, give it a name, select how many servings it makes and then add all ingredients.
