Hasselback Apples Lite

Hasselback potatoes are a fun side dish that I've enjoyed, so when I saw a recipe for Hasselback apples, I thought, "Why not?" The original recipe called for an oatmeal crumble, making the dish something like an apple crisp. While I'm sure that recipe would be delicious, it wouldn't be something that I could indulge in on a regular basis. I decided to eliminate that topping and just kick these baked apples up a notch.

  • 3 large apples, peeled and cored
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°.
  2. Starting at the outer edge, make thin slices at 1/8"-1/4" intervals cutting most (but not all) of the way through each apple half.
  3. Place apple halves, cut side down, in an 8-inch square pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Combine butter, sugar and cinnamon and brush evenly over each apple piece.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  6. Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes
These apples were delicious and with just a bit of butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon on them, they were very figure-friendly. I may add a lightened oatmeal crumble next time.
