Warm cinnamon apples
I went apple picking with my kids and was searching for a way to use them that would kind of mimic apple pie without all the fat and calories. I combined a few recipes with really good results.....
4 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of apple pie spice
In a medium frying pan or medium saucepan combine 1/2 cup of water and sliced apples. Cover with a lid and cook on high for about 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Apples should be tender. Drain apples, reserving the water they steamed in.
In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup water, brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, vanilla and apple pie spice over medium low heat. Stir constantly until this thickens to a thin caramel sauce. Add a little water if necessary, should it accidently get too thick.
Add caramel sauce to the cooked apples, combining well. If necessary, add a little of the reserved water to the pan.
Serve warm with 1/2 cup of frozen vanilla yogurt or another favorite low-fat vanilla ice cream.
This dessert comes in at less than 200 calories and 3 grams of fat, depending on the ice cream used.
We loved it!
Mmmmmm. that sounds good. I make something very similar to use as a fruit topping on pancakes instead of syrup.
OOOO, I just saved this to try to make it this weekend. Sounds wonderful.
Oooh, that'd be great on plain yogurt for breakfast tomorrow!
Oh thanks for the recipe. I'm going to make the sauce right now
Sounds so yummy and a VERY nice sweet treat
