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

Ingredients

  • 4 medium Granny Smith apples
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp Splenda® or Stevia®
  • Water

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Slice apples into thin slices and place in a 9×9 baking dish or pie dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, and Splenda or Stevia. Mix so that all apples are coated. Place a small amount of water in the dish (about 1/4 in).
  3. Bake apples uncovered for 30 minutes or until apples are soft and break apart easily.
