Cinnamon Baked Apple Slices

Normally I buy gala apples to pack with my lunch but braeburns were on sale the other day so I thought I would give them a try. Unfortunately I forgot I am not a huge fan of eating braeburns fresh…. So I thought I would try and bake them with some cinnamon and brown sugar to give them a bit of a different flavor. I really liked the way that they turned out and will definitely make them again. This recipe could be used as a side, a snack or a dessert! 🍎🍏🍎🍏

Makes 4 portions.

Ingredients
2 Apples
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Unpacked Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice apples and remove core and seeds but do not peel off the skins. (Peeling the skins removes a significant amount of fiber and other healthy nutrients) Place sliced apples in a glass 9×13 inch baking pan. Drizzle lemon juice over apples and mix to ensure evenly coated. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over apples and mix again to distribute evenly. Spread apples out so that they are in a mostly single layer in the baking dish. Bake for about 30 minutes, until apples are cooked to desired softness. Remove from oven and split into 4 portions. Add a dollop of vanilla low fat frozen yogurt if desired to make it more of a dessert.
