Braces Friendly Baked Apple Recipe

This time of year, we love eating warm desserts that highlight the fall harvest. A favorite dessert is Dr. Barden’s Braces Friendly Baked Apple.

Braces Friendly, Baked Apples Recipe 


4 large apples

4 tablespoons of soft butter

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup oatmeal

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ cup raisins (or chopped nuts if you have clear aligners, otherwise nuts can damage brackets and wires!)


Wash the apples.  Cut the apple in half and remove the core using a spoon. Combine the other ingredients and fill the apples.  Place the apples in a casserole baking dish. Put ¾ cup water on the bottom and bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes, until apples are soft and filling has browned.

Serve warm and top with whip cream.  Enjoy!
