Easy | Servings: 4 | Ready In: 15 minutes | Yield: 4 broiled apples
This vegan, naturally-sweet dessert is as easy as turning on your broiler. The flame from the broiler caramelizes the apples, creating a flavor reminiscent of campfire marshmallows. Make this fat-free healthy, simple whether cooking for one or cooking for 20…no campfire required.
- 4 Sweet, crisp apples
Preheat your broiler to “Hi”
To make the Easy, Healthy Broiled Apples: Quarter the apples and cut out the cores. Place on a baking pan or sheet pan, with the skin side down.
Place under the broiler for 4-5 minutes. Rotate and broil another 4-5 minutes.
Continue until apples are well-charred all over.
Enjoy like a kid eating burnt marshmallows.
Chef Katie’s Tips
No Refined Sugar or Syrup? I’m on a mission to get rid of empty calories. This dessert doesn’t use any refined sugar, maple syrup, or other refined sweetener. The broiler caramelizes the natural sugars in the apples for plenty of sweetness
Apple Varieties: Choose some sweet, delicious apples. You can try any of your favorite varieties like Fuji, gala, Honeycrisp, Jonagold, or Braeburn. You can even set up an apple “tasting”, with 3 different varieties.
What is Broiling? Broiling is simply grilling from above. With a grill, the flame is below the food. With broiling, the flame is above.
