Healthy Crust-Free Apple Pie Breakfast Recipe
- 4 apples (granny smith or other tart apple works best)
- 4 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon of cloves
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
- ½ cup of chopped walnuts
Start up the oven and set the broiler at medium to high heat. The rack should be positioned about 5 or 6 inches from the broiler.
Cut the apples in half, and cut out the core and seeds. Use your fingers or a cooking brush to rub the apples with olive oil (skin and open sides). Place them down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and broil until skins start to blister and apples start to soften (you can test this with a fork). This usually takes 4-6 minutes, depending on your oven.
In a bowl, combine all spices and salt until incorporated. Turn the apples over on the baking sheet, skin side down, and sprinkle with the mixture of spices. Then use a small spoon to drizzle the apples with maple syrup. Put them back in the oven to broil for another 2 minutes, skin side down. Remove from oven, sprinkle with walnut pieces, and broil for another 1 minute.
Remove them from the oven, allow them to cool for 5 minutes, and enjoy! They’re even great cold, if you want to save the rest, or heat them up in the microwave.
This apple pie breakfast recipe is great for Saturday mornings, and can be enjoyed by the whole family.
With no crust and only 3 grams of carbohydrates, this is an easy solution to your cravings when you’re trying to diet.
