Crock Pot Baked Apples

Indulge in buttery baked apples with this lowfat option that’s just sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. And thanks to the apples, you’ll get a full serving of fruit.

This recipe is the perfect marriage of those same delicious fall flavors wrapped up in a fuss-free dessert that is healthy to boot. Apples form the “base” of this dish.
