Easy Healthy Baked Apple

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Yvaine

I think my mother made this up back in the dieting days. It's great to satisfy a sweet tooth, quick and easy, and can be manipulated in so many ways. I like to add slightly less cinnamon than usual, and add in ginger, vanilla and cloves for a kick. All amount are approximate, this is very much an "eyeball it" recipe!

This is a really tasty and healthy snack! I put my apple in a microwave safe glass bowl with a lid because I don't like to put plastic wrap in the microwave. I used fat free ricotta instead of the cottage cheese (personal preference - I don't like the texture of cottage cheese) and fat free sour cream. This made a really creamy slightly sweet dish. A great easy snack!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash, core and dice apple; dice can be very large, as they will reduce in size during baking.
  2. Place in a microwave-safe dish and cover liberally with spice (s).
  3. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and microwave on full power for 5 minutes.
  4. While it cooks, chop up the nuts and banana.
  5. Remove apple from microwave and carefully remove plastic.
  6. Add in the walnuts, banana, cottage cheese and sour cream and stir all ingredients together.
  7. Enjoy.
