A Dessert You’ll Want to Eat for Breakfast- And You Can!

This dessert is so healthy that it can also be served for breakfast. The only alteration might be the side with which you pair it. For dessert, you might opt for ice cream, frozen yogurt, or rice pudding; for breakfast, try yogurt or cottage cheese.

Baked Apples:

Pre-heat oven, 350 degrees. Core four apples (without piercing a hole all the way through the bottom of the apple, if possible), and place in pan or pyrex casserole dish.

Stuff the well within the apples with dried cranberries, raisins, or nuts. (Om Gal opts for cranberries, as her boyfriend (Om Guy?) is deathly allergic to nuts, and he’s nice, so we’d rather not kill him).

In a bowl, mix:

1/2 c. OJ
1 tbs. brown sugar
1/2 tbs. cinnamon
pinch nutmeg
pinch allspice

Pour the mixture over the apples. Cover the pan with foil or place cover on casserole dish. Bake for 1 hour. Half-way through baking time, it’s helpful to spoon the liquid mixture over the apples again to maintain moisture and flavor). Added bonus: your home will smell wonderful, and house guests will appreciate the guilt-free, thoughful sweet.
