These baked apples are a spectacular dessert with super low points! Soft, sweet apples are stuffed with a crunchy oat and cinnamon filling and served with a scoop of thick greek yogurt, the best low-calorie dessert or indulgent afternoon tea. 

With just a few ingredients, you can turn a humble apple into a decadent dessert with a low points value. We ended up with a fridge full of apples during apple picking season and these are made at least once a week in our house!

It feels decadent and luxurious but they’re only 7 points each. If I have extra, I like mine with a scoop of caramel ice cream and some sugar free caramel sauce. 

These are just one of those things that will impress dinner guests when you bring them out. They aren’t a typical ‘diet’ recipe so they’re great to make for parties, pot-lucks or as an easy after dinner dessert option for the whole family.
