yummy in my tummy

I love dessert. 
I love sugar. 
But I don't love jiggly legs and cellulite. 
So when I come across a dessert recipe that's CLEAN I get very excited. But sometimes they just do not turn out- like my black bean brownies I made one time... disgusting.
This recipe, however is awesome! It's like a peanut butter apple crisp.. yummy!!!
It's from a facebook page I follow: What the Whey, with a bunch of tasty recipes using protein powder.
This girl is the author.. again, I'll eat whatever she's eating to look like that! 

PEANUT BUTTER CARAMEL APPLE DELIGHT

Apple Mixture:
3 Medium Apples (I like honeycrisp) diced
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp Stevia

Drizzle:
2 tbsp almond butter
2 tbsp honey (I hate honey so I used light agave)

Topping:
1 scoop vanilla whey protein
1 cup quick oats
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/8 cup egg whites (I used 2 egg whites)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp imitation butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp applesauce


Directions:
Core apples and dice. Add lemon juice, stevia and cinnamon. Stir to coat and place in 9-inch baking dish coated with nonstick spray. In small microwaveable dish combine 2 tbsp all natural creamy almond butter and 2 tbsp honey. Microwave on high for approx. 25 seconds to melt. Stir mixture well and drizzle over apples. Set aside.

In small bowl, mix vanilla whey protein, oatmeal, cinnamon, nutmeg, Splenda brown sugar blend, chopped pecans and salt. In a second small bowl combine egg whites, imitation butter flavor, vanilla, applesauce and peanut butter (melted). Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and spread topping over the apples.

Bake at 350 degrees until apples are soft and topping is golden brown (about 30 minutes).



I determined this recipe makes 6 servings, at about 315 calories each. It's not super low-cal but it's got healthy fats and guilt-free... as long as you don't eat the whole pan ;)

  1. Mmmmmm sounds good. Since I am not eating treats, when I get a craving I have been eating a light yogurt with fresh raspberries and a squirt of light whipped cream on top. It's amazing. And only 130-150 calories. Excellent :)
