I am a sucker for sweets, but do not enjoy all the calories that come with them (especially if I want a BIG serving). This baked apple crisp is a low-calorie alternative that has less calories and sugars but still satisfies cravings. Try this alongside some Halo Top ice cream for the perfect sweet treat that will keep you on track with your health goals.
4 medium Granny smith apples
2 tbsp Sugar-free pancake syrup
½ cup Water
2 tbsp Cinnamon, ground
1 cup Oats
2 tbsp Butter, unsalted
1 tsp Allspice
1 tsp Ginger
1 tsp Cinnamon, ground
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wash and core gala apples, then chop apples into small pieces. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix 3 tbsp water, syrup, and 2 tbsp cinnamon. Toss apples in the mixture until apples are evenly coated.
Pour apples into a 9x13 baking dish and spread evenly.
In the same mixing bowl as above, mix the rest of the water (5 tbsp), oats, and butter. Microwave for 1 minute- this will come out looking goopy. Evenly spread the oat mixture on-top of the apples.
Sprinkle with 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp all-spice, and 1 tsp ginger.
Bake for 40-50 minutes or until apples are soft. Sometimes, I will cover loosely with aluminum foil to prevent burning while to apples continue to cook.
Served best warm!
**PRO TIP: serve with some Halo Top ice cream!!
