Baked apple, oatmeal, low-fat Greek yogurt= the best breakfast ever (besides pancakes–they are still my favorite). My boyfriend watched Bobby Flay make this on the Food Network and surprised me by making breakfast. Though, it wasn’t too much of a surprise because he told me he needed to buy Greek yogurt while we were at the store… those who know my bf, know that it does not under any circumstance eat yogurt so I knew something was up. He even made it healthier (and easier) than the original- gosh, he’s getting good at this. I have a rule about the number of ingredients a recipe can have– too many, and I become uninterested so we’ve cut a few things– don’t worry it’s still delicious.
Makes 1 baked apple
1 Gala or Fuji apple, bottom sliced so it stands upright
1/8 cup apple cider/juice
Few squirts spray butter
Ground cinnamon and sugar substitute
1/2 cup quick oatmeal prepared (I use Weight Watchers Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal.)
Low-fat Greek yogurt (I highly recommend the Yoplait Greek 100 Apple Pie)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut the top third off each apple and carve a large “bowl” including the core. Place in baking pan. Pour the apple cider over the apple. Add a few squirts of spray butter, cinnamon and sugar substitute. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
Place apple on platter and add prepared oatmeal to the center of the apple. Add a dollop of the Greek yogurt and if you want to make it look pretty, a raspberry and blueberry will do it! A drizzle of sugar-free caramel would do the trick too!
I figured this to be about 3PPV, for one apple for those of you who do WW.
The apples make a great breakfast or dessert!
