Healthy Baked Apple Tips

  • Please note this timing is for medium sized apples. Large apples may need more time and smaller apples may need less.
  • The apple skin will split in the Instant Pot. Simply just tap it back together and you are good to go.
  • You can certainly double the recipe especially if you have a large Instant Pot.
  • You can use a little bit of sweetener if you want even sweeter apples.
  • This was designed to be a Weight Watchers dessert so low in sugar and butter. If you don’t mind the extra calories then add some sugar and butter to your taste.
