Streusel baked apples are like individual, guilt-free apple pies that are super easy to make and absolutely delicious!
I made these streusel baked apples last week and was pleasantly surprised at how yummy they were! I served them alongside a smoked turkey breast (#thehubsisrockingtheBigGreenEgg;-) and Greek salad. The apples were a great complement to the smoky, salty flavors of the turkey and salad.
The recipe came here from Skinnytaste, where you can read the full nutritional information. If you can eat just one half (which I couldn’t; I ate two:-), you are using only 4 Weight Watcher points. If you aren’t worried about diet at all, you can top your apple with a scoop of ice cream and have your own a la mode dessert.
I adapted the recipe slightly by using regular (not quick cooking) oats and by increasing the cook time by half an hour. If you prefer firm baked apples, follow the Skinnytaste recipe. If you like the apples to turn out soft~almost like pie filling~follow mine. I covered mine the last half hour with foil so that the apples would be soft and the struesel would melt into a syrup.
I used Fuji apples because that is what I had on hand. Other good baking apples include honeycrisp, Granny Smith, Jonagold, and Gala.
These really are a healthy and yummy way to incorporate apples into your family’s diet. I’d love to hear back from you if you try these or have your own apple recipe to share.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
