Baked Fruit - A Healthier Dessert

April 01, 2015
Baked goods are the best. Especially when they don’t require any mixing, pouring or whisking. And it’s even more exciting when they’re baked desserts that are healthy!  Say whaaaaat? Yep—introducing baked fruit desserts! With a few simple (and yummy) toppings, these desserts will leave you asking for more. And you can because it’s fruit! Bonus: If you have any non-baked fruit leftovers, keep them in Ziploc® brand bags so you can make a light snack quickly when you’re craving something sweet.

Baked Grapefruit

You’ve probably never thought about baking such a cool, tangy citrus like grapefruit (unless you’re my mom). But the maple syrup + cinnamon + warm temperature turn the tangy juice into a syrupy delicacy perfect for an after-dinner dessert, or a post-brunch “yes please.” And it’s super easy to make! We should make it for every meal! Full Recipe
