There are days it feels like my sweet tooth is the size of my face. I love sweets, especially in the form of delicious mouth-watering dark chocolate. This baked apple recipe is an incredibly close substitute for helping me combat my sugar cravings.
Honey Crisp Apples – this is important. Honey crisp apples are the sweetest tasting of all the apples. If you are doing this to make a dessert substitute be sure to get this kind.
Butter – get the real stuff
Peel the 5-8 apples. I usually slice large chunks of the apple as I go and dump them all into a mixing bowl. If you want to make life easier put them in a bowl that has a lid.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter into a bowl and mix 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
Pour the cinnamon butter mixture into the bowl with the apples, put the lid on the apples, and shake it all up. Make sure the apples are evenly covered. Put the apples in an oven-safe dish. Cook for 20-30 minutes.
Toppings and way to eat it
These apples are delicious just as they are, however, they make excellent toppings for things.
Greek Yogurt – they mix well with plain “no flavor” Greek yogurt. Though I use a small amount of yogurt and dip the apples in them. The plain “no flavor” can have a strong taste that overpowers the apples.
Honey Greek Yogurt – This tastes way better than the plain “no flavor” Greek yogurt, however it is higher in sugar. Greek yogurt makes an excellent dipping sauce.
Old fashion oatmeal – adding baked apples to old fashion oatmeal is absolutely delightful. On top of that, they smell amazing as you cook everything together.
