I am absolutely loving eating the Trim Healthy Mama way! You get to eat chocolate that is good for you, fresh delicious veggies, and loads of good fats! I am a week and a half into my new found love for this way of eating, on Sunday I found myself feeling slightly sluggish. After a week of feeling energized and fantastic, I was so nervous could my awesome new food plan be making me feel yucky? NOPE! I just needed to add in more “E” or Energizing meals. These meals are higher in carbohydrates, low in fat, and must include protein. I diligently made myself a delicious dinner of baked Tilapia, roasted asparagus, and quinoa. It was delectable, but as usual about an hour after dinner I wanted dessert! So I put my creative side to work and looked at Pinterest where I found Joy in the Journey’s sugar free THM friendly version of an apple crisp for a family, it looked delicious unfortunately I am the only one in my house eating this way so her awesome recipe wouldn’t work for me. So I took the concept of this apple crisp and ran with the idea and made it for one! Here is the Recipe:
- 1 Small Baking Apple (about 21 carbs) (I used a honeycrisp)
- 2 TBS (4 carbs)Old fashioned Oats divided
- (optional) 1/2 scoop of Swansons vanilla Whey Isolate protein powder
- 1 Tsp Butter
- 1-2 Tsp Truvia or THM Sweet Blend or 1-2 shakes Stevia extract
- 1 Tsp Ground cinnamon
- 1/8 Tsp sea salt
- 1 Tsp water mixed with a shake of Glucomannan
- Optional Fat Free Redi-whip
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Begin by peeling, coring, and dicing your apple place in a mixing bowl and add ground cinnamon, truvia or stevia, & optional Protein Powder salt and toss together until your apples are coated on all sides. Next add the teaspoon of water mixed with gluccie (our affectionate name for Glucomannan ) and toss.
I then ground one TBS of my oats in a coffee grinder until it was the consistency of flour, after that I melted my butter in a small skillet and added the ground oats and whole oats stirring consistently until they had absorbed the butter and resembled crumble.
Pour the apple cinnamon mixture into a small oven-safe ramekin, and then sprinkle your oat crumble on top. Place on a cookie sheet and in the oven bake for 20-22 min. Allow it to cool for a few minutes before devouring it or else you will end up like me and burn your tongue while savoring the deliciousness that is this dessert.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe! I would love to hear feed back from you! Print the recipe here: Apple Crisp For One
