Final thoughts: My goal was to have something sweet, but to add some healthy ingredients in it. It taste like banana bread, but with a cookie flare to it. They are really good right out of the oven. If you aren't a fan of sunflower seeds, you can cut the amount down or remove all together if you can eat the seeds. If you try them, let me know what you think.
7 servings, 1/2 cup 119 Cal [using Stevia, adjust it if you use a different sugar]
7 Granny Smith Apples
1 Tbsp Cinnamon [or to taste]
1 Tbsp Nutmeg [or to taste]
2 Tablespoons butter
Cap full of lemon juice
1/2 cup Stevia
Peel the apples and cut them up into chunks. Add 1/3 of your seasoning, the cap of lemon juice and sugar [if you don't like the taste of Stevia try another sweetener and adjust the calorie count]. Stir it all together. I let it sit for about 5 minutes and stirred it a few times to allow it be settle.
Next, add the apples to your pan with the butter. Cook the apples until they get soft. I added more of the seasoning as it cooked. I wanted all the apples to be covered. Once the apples were ready, I moved them to the bowl [see picture below]. The serving size was 1/2 cup.
I call these apple toppers because you can add them to other dishes. I was looking for another way to sweeten my oatmeal with add adding sugar or as much. This was one way I ate them. I also ate them as a desert when they were warm. They were really good.
* Serve with ice cream as a crustless pie.
*Use as the base for an Apple Crisp [Recipe here: Apple Crisp Youtube]
I started my health journey back in 2015 when I was over 200 pounds, on high blood pressure medicine, and getting sicker. Now at 61 I am feeling better than I did at 30. I just want to encourage you that you are worth the investment in you!
