    • Apple-Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

      Yes, you really can have it all: Gooey pull-apart bread that's good for you, too, thanks to the nutritional benefits of ground flaxseed and fresh apples. A buttery orange and brown sugar sauce enhances the apple flavor as this dessert bakes, and the creamy icing is made guilt-free with reduced-fat cream cheese.

    • Cinnamon Streusel Fresh Apple Bars

      Your family will know these bars are healthy only if you tell them. We gave these apple-studded treats a nutritional boost by incorporating white whole wheat flour, and we nixed a sugar-filled glaze in favor of crumbly cinnamon streusel. The result? A moist, 123-calorie-per-serving slice of decadent fall flavors.

      More Fall-Inspired Flavors
    • Caramel Apple Cookies

      Low in fat and calories, these delicious apple cookies get a flavor boost from cinnamon, cloves, and raisins. Topped with creamy caramel frosting and crunchy walnuts, they're the ideal healthy treat to feed a crowd -- the recipe makes 72 cookies.

      Create Custom Cookies
    • Maple-Glazed Baked Apples

      Whip up this healthy apple dessert with just five ingredients. Apple juice, maple syrup, and a small amount of butter come together for an easy sauce that allows the apple flavor to shine. A cinnamon stick "stem" gives each apple a hint of spice.

    • Apple-Toffee Tartlets

      Perfect for entertaining, these easy-to-make tartlets combine chunks of apple and crunchy toffee candy in delicious mini pies. They freeze for up to three months, in case you want to save some for later or make dessert ahead.

    • Stuffed Apples

      Figs sweetened with brown sugar and apple pie spice are the perfect stuffing for baked apples. The best part? This healthy apple dessert takes just 20 minutes to prep, and then the slow cooker does the rest.

    • Apple-Streusel Muffins

      Muffins can be high in calories, but our apple-streusel muffins are an exception. Our secret: We boost the flavor with apple pie spice instead of sugar, and top them with a crumbly mix of flaxseed meal, pecans, and brown sugar for an irresistible -- and healthy -- apple recipe.

      Chocolate-Apple Brownies with Dulce de Leche Frosting

      Chopped apples add a hint of tart flavor to these chocolate brownies. Dulce de leche frosting, which tastes a bit like creamy caramel, pairs perfectly with both chocolate and apples.

      Pistachio Apple Baklava

      Crisp, nutty baklava with a harvest apple twist? Yes, please! Rather than brushing with melted butter, we trimmed calories by spritzing phyllo sheets with butter-flavor cooking spray. Apples, dried cranberries, and a smidge of honey give the pistachio filling natural sweetness.

      Apple Creme Brulee

      This special treat for two tastes deceptively indulgent. Creamy Greek-yogurt-based custard and a drizzle of caramelized sugar form a luscious top layer, but keep digging -- tender spiced apples are waiting at the bottom.

    • 16 of 20

      Spiced Caramel Apples

      Instead of serving caramel apples on a stick, we cut apples in half, topped them with a sprinkle of cinnamon and cloves, and cooked them in a slow cooker. We added a drizzle of caramel topping later, along with a few chopped pecans, to create a healthy apple dessert that wows.

      Apple-Cranberry Crisp

      With thin slices of apple, tart-and-tangy cranberries, and a gorgeously browned oat topping, this slimmed-down crisp is a dead ringer for the full-fat version. A light touch on the butter decreases the calorie count, and with this crisp's assertive fruity flavors, you won't miss it for a minute.

      Apple-Date Cake

      Chopped dates add another sweet and fruity layer to this healthy apple cake recipe. Pecans, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon come together for the irresistibly crunchy topping you know and love.
