Recipe: Crispy Apple Bake

Serves 1


  • 1 Granny Smith or other tart apple
  • 1-2 tsp. butter or margarine
  • 1 T. brown sugar
  • 2 T. oatmeal
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2-3 walnut or pecan halves
  • 1 T. orange juice


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Core apple and split 3/4 down in 4 sections. Combine butter, brown sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon and nuts in a small bowl with a fork. Spoon mixture into center of apple, allowing some to spill over top and sides. Pour juice over apple. Cover loosely  and bake for 20 minutes. The topping will be crispier if the cover is removed during the last few minutes of baking. This can also be prepared in a microwave oven, on high for 4 minutes, however it will not be as crispy. Apple is done when fork inserted in side of apple comes out clean.

Note: Simple fresh fruit desserts for one are easily adjusted for additional servings. It’s a great way to enjoy dessert and get your fruit as well.
