Healthy Baked Apple Bombs

At 205 calories these are amazingly half the calories of a slice of traditional apple pie but full on flavor! I was inspired by a recipe that I saw in Martha Stewarts Everyday Food Magazine but changed quite a bit of it to make it healthier. These are super easy to make and A LOT quicker than slaving away on a homemade apple pie!

Makes 4 servings and I served mine with low fat vanilla bean ice cream but I'm sure whipped cream or vanilla yogurt will work to.

Healthy Baked Apple Bombs Recipe

2 large Granny Smith apples halved and core cut out
1/4 c. chopped walnuts
1/4 c. chopped pecans
1/2 c. old fashioned or quick oats uncooked
2 Tbs brown sugar
1 Tbs orange marmalade (though strawberry or honey may work)
1 Tbs unsalted butter softened
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt

Pre heat oven to 350f or 180c. Mix the nuts, oats, brown sugar, marmalade, butter, cinnamon and salt in a bowl very well. Dollop mixture into the middle of the apple halves dividing evenly. On a foiled baking sheet place stuffed apples 2 inches apart and bake for about 15 minutes or till the white part of the apple can be pierced easily with a fork. Let cool slightly and scoop out the apple from the skin to serve. Enjoy!
