Roasting apples enhances their sweetness and is a delicious way to highlight fresh fruit in dessert recipes. We added an oat-based topping for flavor and crunch.

Ingredients

cooking spray

1 spray(s)

fresh apple(s)

4 large, sweet-baking variety such as Gala or Rome

SPLENDA® Sweetener, no calorie, packets

½ tsp

ground cinnamon

½ tsp

ground nutmeg

½ tsp, or freshly grated nutmegTopping

uncooked rolled oats

½ cup(s)

SPLENDA® Sweetener, no calorie, packets

½ tsp

ground cinnamon

¼ tsp

egg white(s)

2 large, beaten until frothy

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat a nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. To make filling, peel and core apples; cut each apple into six 1/4-inch-thick slices. In a medium bowl, combine apples, Splenda, cinnamon and nutmeg; toss to combine. Spread apple mixture over prepared baking sheet so apples are mostly in a single layer. Bake for 5 minutes; flip apples with a spatula and bake for 5 minutes more.
  3. Meanwhile, combine topping ingredients in a small bowl; mix well. Spread oat mixture over another nonstick baking sheet and bake until lightly browned and crisp, about 2 minutes.
  4. To serve, place 6 slices of apple in each of 4 shallow bowls and top each with about 2 tablespoons of oat topping.
