Baked Apples with Crunchy Oat Topping

1 – spray of cooking spray

4 –large apples (sweet baking variety such as Gala or Rome)

½ Teaspoon – Splenda no calorie sweetener

½ Teaspoon – ground cinnamon

½ Teaspoon – ground nutmeg, or freshly grated nutmeg

Topping

½ Cup – rolled oats

½ Teaspoon – Splenda no calorie sweetener

¼ Teaspoon – ground cinnamon

2 – large egg whites, beaten until frothy

Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray

To make the filling; peel and core apples; cut each apple into six ¼ inch thick slices.  In a medium bowl, combine apples, Splenda, cinnamon and nutmeg; toss to combine.

Spread apple mixture over prepared baking sheet so apples are mostly in a single layer.  Bake for 5 minutes; flip slices with a spatula and bake for 5 minutes more.

Meanwhile, combine topping ingredients in a small bowl; mix well.  Spread oat topping mixture on another nonstick baking sheet and bake until lightly browned and crisp, about 2 minutes.

To serve place 6 slices of apple in each of 4 shallow bowls and top each with about 2 tablespoons of oat topping.
