Meatless Monday: Hasselback Apples

Halloween is just around the corner and today’s recipe is going to get you into the fall spirit if you aren’t there already.  Obviously apples are abundant during the fall, so what better to start your week off than a baked apple dessert?  I usually slice my apples, toss them with cinnamon and sugar, and microwave for a few minutes until they are tender.  But, today’s recipe is a baked apple recipe called hasselback apples.  You cut slits into the apple and fill those slits with sugary goodness then bake in the oven.  Follow the recipe below!

2 large firm apples (I used Pink Lady)

3 tablespoons brown sugar, divided

2½ tablespoons butter, melted and divided

¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided

2 tablespoons old-fashioned rolled oats

1 teaspoon all-purpose flour

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

1½ cups low-fat Greek Yogurt

1 TSP Vanilla

1/2 TSP Cinnamon

OR 1 1/2 Cinnamon Ice Cream
