Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could eat healthy food and also have dessert?
I was in Argentina a couple years ago, and we had an awesome barbecue dinner. Afterwards, they asked us if we wanted dessert. Because I was in a more Germanic area, I assumed dessert was going to be some type of delicious German pastry.
They brought out apples and bananas.
“That’s not dessert,” I protested ungratefully! “That’s fruit!”
Oh, how times have changed!
A healthy dessert – not simply fruit
At least in the U.S., we’re heading towards the Thanksgiving season. I’m developing several recipes to make this year’s Thanksgiving much healthier than others in my family’s past.
I wanted to share with you this really simple – but totally delicious – recipe as a dessert possibility.
If you like apples, this will be right up your alley. In this example, I use the oven. But one of the best things about the recipe is it can be made in the microwave!
- 4 apples, cored but not peeled
- drizzle of honey
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Stand the apples up in a baking dish so the core is open to the top.
- Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon and allspice into the core. Try to let it get on the apple rather than all fall through the core to the dish.
- Drizzle a small amount of honey – less than a tsp – into the core as well.
- Bake for about 25 minutes or until the apples are soft.
As I mentioned, I’m just finishing up a recipe book for Thanksgiving. This apple recipe is in it, along with a bunch of other great fall recipes.
I’m going to let my mailing list members know about it first, and probably at a 30% discount. If you’d like to be among the first to know about it, go ahead and sign up for the mailing list.
Let me know how you like this simple recipe. And I hope you have an awesome and healthy holiday season!
