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
