This is the story of how I worked a cheesecake into an apple, drizzled it with caramel and kept it at 150 calories, thanks to my new, sweet friend, Born Sweet® Zing™ Baking Blend!

I adore baked apples and it’s not a secret. I have already made 3 trips to the Apple Orchard just this month. I made an Apple Pie CAKE twice this week; I also worked on that Apple Bacon Salad, some caramel dipped apples, as well, and now THIS – Lighter Caramel-Cheesecake Stuffed Baked Apples. Hallelujah!Three skinny cheesecake stuffed apples on a plate topped with caramel sauce

I think you’re really going to like this, friends. One of my most happy memories year after year involves me stuffing my face with my mom’s baked apples that were stuffed with raisins, nuts and oats. Yes, truly amazing! Buuuut I’m thinking anything stuffed with cheesecake, including baked apples, kind of wins. Right? RIGHT.

EVEN better when all that goodness is lightened up and made with Zing Baking Blend.A can of Zing baking blend

  1. How much Splenda would I use in these instead of the Zing Baking Blend, which contains regular sugar? I really do want to try them but my husband has diabetes and I want him to be able to enjoy them too.
