Baked Apples

#TastyTuesday There’s no denying it - I LOVE all things baked, roasted and toasty warm come this time of year. And to boot, there are certain smells that just send it all home, such as the aroma that comes from apples and cinnamon baking in the oven. Now, usually this happens when I’m whipping up something not so waistline friendly such as a pie or crisp, but this is a great alternative - Baked Apples! The portions are already easily defined (1/2 apple per) and you can limit the amount of “crisp” on top or substitute with healthier ingredients such as maple syrup for the sugar, or almond flour in place of the AP flour. Bottom line - your home will still smell of all things wonderfully Fall and your tummy and sweet tooth will be satisfied! #MergeFitness #FitnessforALLabilities #AnAppleaDay #IsitFinallyFall

(PS- I’ve also cooked my apples in a baking dish so the little buggers aren’t tempted to roll around and spill their goods on top!)
