Guilt-Free Baked Apple Express

Julia McGinnis


Anyone who knows me knows that i'm a health nut. However, I'm a health nut with a relentless sweet tooth, so I am always looking for easy ways to please both sides. Not only is this recipe healthy (low calorie and nutritious), it's quick! 5 mins! Eat as is, or add to your favorite panini, waffle/pancake, or any other dish that you want to add baked apples without the extra sugar. I personally eat these with oatmeal or alone as a mid-morning snack. 80 calories never tasted so good!
