Baked Apple
Serves: 4
Nutrition Facts Per Serving: Serving is 1 apple: 89 Calories, 17 g Carbohydrate, 1 g fat, 0 g protein, 4 g fiber, 4 gram sodium
  • 4 apples (we recommend fuji, or green tart apples, depending on your favorites and preferences, but any will work
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable based butter spread (a trans fat free one, of course!)
  • a sprinkle of sugar, optional
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. From the top of the apple, scoop out the core, but do not cut all the way through.  You simply want to create a well at the top of the apple. In each apple's "well" add ½ teaspoon of butter spread, ½ teaspoon cinnamon and sprinkle with a dash of sugar if using.
  3. Place the apples in a baking pan with a lip or in a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon and place in the oven for about 15 minutes--or until the apples are tender.  Enjoy!
