(1 pita-half pie - 139 calories, < 0.5g fat, 207mg sodium, 35g carbs, 5.8g

fiber, 16.5g sugars, 3.5g protein = 2 Points)

Ooey-good apple madness!


4 apples; sliced and peeled

One half tsp. vanilla extract

1 tbsp. brown sugar substitute (or any calorie-free sweetener)

One half tsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. cornstarch

2 Western Bagel Alternative Pitas (*or any reduced-calorie pitas); halved


In a small covered saucepan, cook sliced and peeled apples in 1/4 cup of

water until tender (2-3 minutes). Remove from heat and drain water. Into

1/4 cup of COLD water, mix vanilla, no-cal sweetener, cinnamon and

cornstarch. Cook and stir until thickened to a caramel-sauce-like

consistency (adding a few drops more water if it gets too thick). Remove

from heat and stir apples into mixture. Stuff 4 warm pita halves (30 seconds

in the microwave should do it) with mixture. Serves 4.

*Nutritionals may vary if you use a different type of pita.

HG Tip! This apple mixture is also great solo with a dollop of fat-free Cool
