Lower Cal Apple Crisp

KristineDesserts, Healthy "MAKEOVERS", Recipes2 Comments

This is a GREAT apple crisp recipe.  It is a healthier version of my Mom’s recipe.  A great dessert to take to holiday dinners.  Then at least you know you won’t destroy your diet.  I can tell you though, that everyone will be none the wiser that it is a lower cal version.  I tried it on my brother and his fiancee, and they had no idea it was a healthy makeover!

If you need to feed a bigger crowd, I would double the recipe and put in a 9×13 baking dish.  If you’d like, you can also put them into individual dishes, and bake them that way too.

Makes 6 servings

6 medium apples (I like using Mac apples)
7 packets of stevia (or sugar substitute of choise)
2 Tbsp water
3 Tbsp butter (or for non-dairy, use Earth Balance)
1/3 cup spelt flour (or whole wheat flour, or oat flour for gluten-free)
1/2 cup sucanat (raw brown sugar)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Peel apples (if you like) and slice into sprayed 8×8 cooking dish.  Sprinkle with stevia and cinnamon and water.  Combine flour, butter/margarine and sucanat with fingertips & spread mixture on top of the apples.  Bake for 30 minutes until apples have softened and top is golden brown.
