Baked Apple Rings: Healthy Indulgence
Another healthy post! We have to have ways to indulge and still enjoy. Of course, after I made these little 35 calorie rings of goodness, I smothered them in caramel sauce. Not quite as healthy. I had some leftover from Thanksgiving, so it was more like recycling.
These are also a great treat for kids.
Or, a great dessert to bring to a party so that you will keep your grubby little hands off the chocolate tray, but still have somethings to snack on.
Only 35 calories each. And even if you eat an entire apple, all by yourself, it’s only 160 calories. But you should probably stop there. Just sayin'
Baked Apple Rings
5 medium sized fuji apples, peeled cored and cut into 1/2 inch slices
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
2 tbs sugar
1 tbs cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup skim milk
1 large egg
1/2 tsp real vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 400.
In a bowl combine the flour, Panko, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt, stir with a fork until well combined. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, egg and vanilla extract with a fork until well combined.
Spray a baking sheet with butter flavored cooking spray.
Place one of the apple rings in the milk mixture and into the flour mixture. Turn the ring over, coat well with the flour mixture. Place on the baking sheet. Repeat for all slices.
Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Turn the rings over and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve warm.
