Baked Apple Snack
Although I’m never really ready to let go of summer in the northeast, apple season does sweeten the deal and make the fall transition a little easier.
Apple picking is plentiful in our region and there are so many farms that are fun to visit, each with their own unique twist and way of making apple season memorable. So many of these local farms have left their stamp on my heart with fantastic memories of apple picking with my family and we aren’t done yet, there’s more memories to make!
We often over pick? Do you? And, then you’re left with eating all of those apples; which we don’t mind!
Apples are a staple all year long at my house. There is always a bowl of fresh apples on my pantry shelves = true story.
And, I don’t know why I wait to pull out all of my apple recipes until the fall? But, I do. Here’s a delicious simple baked apple snack that’s worth trying.
- 1 FlatOut® Fold-it® or 100 calorie round
- 1 golden delicious apple
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Cut the Fold-it® in half to create two rounds. Place the rounds on a non-stick baking sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray.
Spread a light layer of honey on each round.
Stir the shredded cheese and cinnamon together. Top each round with the cheese mixture.
Wash & slice the apple into thin slices. Top each round with five slices to create a pinwheel look. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon to the top of the apples.
Bake for approximately 7 minutes, until the bread is toasted, the cheese is melted and the apples are slightly softened.
The Base: You can use a whole grain FlatOut Fold-it cut in half to create the round base or the 100 calorie rounds. When I use the 100 calorie rounds I love grabbing the honey wheat combo, but the multigrain or whole wheat works too. It’s all a personal preference.
