#SundaySupper Warm Apple Crumble

This is one of my favorite, favorite themes! Our host for this weeks #SundaySupper is Sue from Sue’s Nutrition Buzz and she is putting the skinny in our dishes! As a team, we have made our dishes skinny so they don’t add-on the wait and keep your waist, well skinny!

I choose to make over one of my favorite desserts – the Apple Crumble. I took out the vanilla ice cream and any form of butter slabs that may have went on an original apple crumble topping to save on calories. I substituted any kind of sugar with 100% pure maple syrup which still left the apples full of sweet “caramel” flavor.  Sacrificing calories and not flavor is key to this dish. In addition, the crumble topping is made from dates and pecans. Feel good eating this fiber packed dessert!

Ingredients:

  • 3 apples: cored and quartered (I really like using Granny Smith, they hold up nicely, but had Gala on hand)
  • 1/4 cup organic 100% maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 10 pitted dates
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Step 1: Over low heat combine apples, maple syrup and cinnamon in a saucepan. Stir until apples are warmed through.

The maple syrup becomes thicker and holds onto the apples. It’s an amazing sweet flavor.

Step 2: In a food processor, add all the ingredients for the topping. Pulse until a crumbly texture forms.

Step 2: Scoop the apples into a bowl and sprinkle with topping.

I love making this dish for the unexpected guest that just happened to be in the neighborhood! Usually, that’s my parents, unexpectedly in the area….

So you want to know some nutrition information? Can’t blame you. I went to MyFitnessPal.com and added up my ingredients to give me this information.

Serves 8 (You don’t need much sweetness to fill you up either!)
