Full Answer

To make low-calorie baked apples, you need 2 apples, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/3 cup of water or apple juice. Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Wash the apples and cut them in halves. Put the apples in an oven-proof baking dish. In a separate bowl, mix the nutmeg, brown sugar and cinnamon. Spoon this mixture into the halves of the apple. Pour some water or apple juice into the baking dish. Put the baking dish in the oven. Bake the apples for 40 to 45 minutes until they are tender. Baste them occasionally with the water or apple juice in the baking dish. Serve warm.

You can customize this recipe by adding other healthy ingredients, such as raisins, dried fruits, quick cooking oats or low fat granola. You may also choose to use artificial sugar, such as Splenda and Stevia, instead of the brown sugar.

This recipe serves four people. One serving of 1/2 an apple has about 133 calories.
