cooking spray1 spray(s)
fresh apple(s)4 large, sweet-baking variety such as Gala or Rome
SPLENDA® No calorie sweetener with fiber, packets2 packet(s), (or other brand of your choice)
uncooked rolled oats½ cup(s)
egg white(s)2 large, beaten until frothy
ground cinnamon¾ tsp
ground nutmeg½ tsp, or freshly grated nutmeg
- Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat a nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray.
- To make filling, peel and core apples; cut each into six 1/4-inch-thick slices. Combine apples, 1 packet of Splenda, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl; toss to combine. Spread apple mixture over prepared baking sheet so apples are mostly in a single layer. Bake for 5 minutes; flip slices with a spatula and bake for 5 minutes more.
- Meanwhile, to make topping, combine oats, remaining packet of Splenda, remaining 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and egg whites in a bowl; mix to combine. Spread oat mixture over another nonstick baking sheet and bake until lightly browned and crisp, about 2 minutes.
- To serve, place 6 slices of apple in each of 4 shallow bowls and top each with about 2 tablespoons of oat topping.
