Snacks to Eat Before Bed - Part 5

Apple + Peanut Butter

With this easy-to-make snack, the apple's filling fiber, and PB's healthy fat team up to tame your hunger.

Stick with a single tablespoon of peanut butter to avoid a too-heavy treat. And below is a fun make-ahead snack.

Apples are full of fiber, so they're ideal if you’re always hungry.  Kick things up a notch by baking your apples to desserty perfection!

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Core 4 medium Rome or Braeburn apples, and place them in an 8" X 8" baking pan. Top with a can of no-calorie black cherry soda. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar (or half a packet of no-calorie sweetener) and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. 
3. Bake until apples are tender, about 45 minutes.
4. Top each apple with 2 tablespoons of Fat-Free Reddi-wip (or your whipped topping of choice). Next stop, Yum Town!
1/4th of recipe (1 apple): 104 calories

Comment:  I love apples and have found a low calorie Asian dressing that I like to drizzle over them.  And yes, they are filling!
