Ingredients:
Serves 2
175 calories per serving 


  • 2 apples
  • 1/4 c quick cooking oats 
  • 1/4 c fat-free milk
  • 1 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp brown sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • Pinch salt

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare the apple cups.  Cut off the top of each apple.  Using a paring knife, carefully cut around the inside of the apple, leaving about 1/4 inch of the flesh intact.  Scoop out the flesh with a spoon.  Separate the core from the flesh and discard the core.  

Dice the apple flesh and place it in a bowl.  You should have about 1/2 c of flesh.  Add the oats, milk, walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt to the diced apple.  Taste and adjust add a little more brown sugar, if desired.  

Spoon the apple mixture inside the hollowed-out apple cups.  Sprinkle more brown sugar on top, if desired.  Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the apples are soft.  

Enjoy!
