Fall is here and so is apple season…. I know most of you think of “everything pumpkin” BUT I LOVE apples.  So check out these YUMMY Hungry Girl Apple Pies On the Go.

1/6th of recipe (1 pie): 96 calories, 0.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 162mg sodium, 22.5g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 6.5g sugars, 2g protein      SmartPoints® value 2*

Prep: 15 minutes      Cook: 25 minutes      Cool: 20 minutes     MAKES 6 SERVINGS

Ingredients:

2 tsp. cornstarch
3 cups peeled and chopped Fuji or Gala apples (about 3 apples)
2 packets no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt
6 large square egg roll wrappers (stocked with the tofu in the refrigerated section of the market)
Optional topping: powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. In a medium nonstick pot, combine cornstarch with 1/2 cup water. Stir to dissolve.
  2. Add apples, sweetener, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir well.
  3. Set heat to medium. Stirring frequently, cook until apples have slightly softened and mixture is thick and gooey, 8 – 10 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a medium bowl. Let cool slightly, about 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  6. Lay an egg roll wrapper flat on a dry surface. Evenly distribute 1/6th of apple mixture (about 1/3 cup) on the bottom half of the wrapper.
  7. Moisten all four edges by dabbing your fingers in water and going over the edges smoothly. Fold the top half over the mixture so the top edge meets the bottom. Seal edges by pressing firmly with the prongs of a fork.
  8. Place on the baking sheet, and repeat to make 5 more pie pockets.
  9. Spray with nonstick spray. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Tasty Tuesday: Apple Pie Fritter Bread

Today’s recipe is courtesy of The Baking Chocola Tess.

Do you like Apple Fritters?  I don’t mean the kind you find in WaWa or any other store bakery.  Have you ever had an apple fritter baked into a fluffy, buttery, white cake loaf with chunks of apples and layers of brown sugar and cinnamon swirled inside and on top?  I mean the moist, delicious and full of home-made goodness from the heart – just like home kind!  I am going to tweak this some so it is gluten free and hopefully it will be just as YUMMY!
