Honey Baked Apples
Warm honey baked cinnamon apples with creamed honey ricotta.

It’s fall, y’all, and in my house we’ve been craving sweets! We’re sticking to our diets and holding each other accountable so neither of us cracks and heads straight for Dairy Queen, so when Austin suggested dessert last night I had to get creative! We had some sliced apples from Sam’s Club in the fridge, along with the left over low fat ricotta cheese from the lasagna so I decided to make honey baked cinnamon apples, and topped them with a ricotta and honey mixture. Towards the end of baking the apples, I crumbled some Special K vanilla almond cereal on top for a textural element and I’ve gotta say it turned out great! It was the perfect fall dessert to treat our sweet tooth, and it just shows you that with a little resourcefulness you can use ingredients around the house to make a delicious dessert!
