It’s hard out there for a health-conscious eater right now. I mean, let’s be honest: who wants to eat an apple when you can have apple pie, am I right?
Well, I’ve got my personal solution to this problem, and maybe it can be yours too. It’s a personal apple dessert you can make in just two minutes in your microwave. And trust me, it’s much better to eat this than a piece of that pie. If you don’t want to take my word for it, I had a few coworkers sample the goods. Raji, USANA’s photographer, said, “That’s weird, it doesn’t taste healthy!” And Jed, one of our designers here at USANA, said, “Making these for my next dinner. Guests won’t even know they’re healthy or that I’m a health nerd.” And these boys are notoriously hard to please!
Personal Apple Dessert
1 apple, cored and peeled halfway
2 tablespoons steel-cut oatmeal
1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup
½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or to taste
½ teaspoon all spice or to taste
1 heaping tablespoon dried cranberries
Cut slits in your cored and peeled apple that go halfway down, so the base of the apple with the skin is still whole. Place the apple in a small, microwavable dish. Fill the core of the apple with oatmeal. Drizzle the maple syrup over the apple and the oatmeal, and then sprinkle the pumpkin pie spice and all spice over that. Microwave for two minutes. When done, move the apple to a serving plate, and sprinkle the dried cranberries on top. Take the excess maple syrup from the microwavable dish and drizzle that over the baked apple. Enjoy!
