Smart Sweet: Baked Apples with Almonds, Cranberries & Cinnamon

By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

Since I’m one of the Guided Reboot coaches I’m consistently working with my Rebooters to make sure they have enough healthy eating options to enjoy once their Reboot comes to an end. I came up with this healthy and delicious baked apple dessert for a group who had a sweet tooth! The golden delicious apples are packed with fiber and vitamin C. This dish is sprinkled with blood pressure-lowering cinnamon and topped with protein-rich almonds and slightly sweetened cranberries.

You can make this dessert for a quick and easy addition to any meal. You can also change the fruit to peaches or add mangoes to mix it up.
