Recipe: Low-Cal Baked Cinnamon Apples

Baked cinnamon apples are a fall and winter favorite, but you can enjoy them all year! Traditional recipes use sugar, which you can do. But to cut down on calories, this recipe offers an alternative: artificial sweeteners. At 100 calories, each serving is comparable to one fresh Granny Smith apple — the spices and flavorings don’t add any extra!
