What a sweet warm treat for a cold afternoon! What a sweet warm treat for a cold afternoon!
Number of Servings: 4


    4 small tart apples, such as Granny Smith, washed and cored

    1 tablespoon Smart Balance butter blend, softened
    1 tablespoon pecans, toasted and chopped
    2 tablespoons raisins
    2 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


This dish is like having a piece of apple pie but without the large amount of fat and carbs from the dough. The oats inside will trick your mind into thinking that you did just eat pie!


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the apples in a baking dish.
Combine raisins in a small bowl with 1 tablespoon of warm water and allow to rest for 10 minutes. (This is an important step! If you skip this step, the raisins will burn in the oven.)
Combine all ingredients for the filling in a bowl. Divide the filling evenly among the apples.
Pour 1/2 cup water into the bottom of the baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before eating.
Makes 4 servings

    I didn't use raisins and used almonds instead of pecans. The .25 lb apples were hard to core so I halved them. I mixed the filling by hand, it was the only way to get it to come together. I sprinkled the apples with cinnamon and spread the filling over. Baked them cut side up and they were awesome! - 12/16/12

    A really tasty way to get my "apple a day" and extra fiber too. I increased the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp because I'm Diabetic ..... and I just really enjoy the taste of cinnamon with apple! - 4/13/11

    This was delicious! If you can't find small apples, I'd recommend splitting the filling between 2 apples instead of 4. - 6/11/11

    These were OK. If I make them again I will leave out the oatmeal because it didn't taste good at all and even seemed undercooked. - 2/26/11

    I like two large apples split and filling on top much better. Same ingredients. I find Granny Smith too tart and hard, I prefer Gala or Winesap when one can find them. I also take a medium apple: wash, split, core, slice in1/4" slices. Dust well with cinnamon or apple pie spice and Microwave 3 min. - 12/16/12
