An apple a day……

Try this a kid friendly, super easy to make, afternoon snack!  Kayla LOVED it!

We were reading her High Five magazine and it had a recipe for Roasted applesauce…but it had butter in the ingredients…and surely you do not need it to make roasted apples taste delish!

3 Ingredients:

  • 2 Apples (I use Gala because they are so sweet!)
  • 1-2 teaspoon of Sugar (yes…I said sugar).  
  • sprinkle of Cinnamon (as much or as little as you like)

Note:  Sugar.  There are 15 calories in a tsp of sugar.  I am trying to get away from anything artificial (so Splenda is now limited for me).  Sugar is natural…so if God allows it on this earth, surely a little will not kill me.  Plus perhaps i’ll skip to the mailbox in lieu of walking and just burn it off.  😉  Truly….we didn’t even need the sugar, but for our 1st time making this, we added it.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Wash and dry apples.  Cut apples in half.  Cut out center core.  Slice apples.  I prefer to leave the skin on my apples since there are so many health benefits to the skin itself! 🙂

Line a small square pan with tin foil (for easy cleanup).  Place apples in pan.  Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.  Tightly cover the pan with tin foil.

Bake for 20-25 minutes…until they are fork tender and it makes a nice juicy glaze.

Plate and enjoy!!!

Note:  You can also peel the apples during prep and use this recipe to make your own applesauce! 🙂
