For the sweet tooth in us all.


MP900382802I know that watching your sugar and eating healthy are all things most of us think about, especially those of us that are also watching our weight or who might be on a diet now. I have found a great recipe for Apple crisp to share with you but before you get discouraged and stop reading, it is also low in sugar and designed to make even us dieters happy.

I bet you did not know, or maybe I did not know all the wonderful things apples can do for your health.

They have been showed to have Antioxidant and Cardiovascular benefits. And recent studies have shown they are now known to have Benefits for Blood Sugar Regulation.

Low GI “AppleCrisp

1 jumbo zucchini

1 cup fructose (or Splenda)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

2 Tablespoons 100% whole wheat flour

Topping:

1 cup 100% whole wheat flour

1/3 cup fructose (or Splenda)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

3/4 cup rolled oats (regular)

1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Peel and trim zucchini. Slice it

lengthwise into quarters. Cut all the seeds out. Slice the zucchini into slices that resemble apple slices.

You should have about 6 cups of slices.

Boil the zucchini slices in the boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain well.

Mix together the 1 cup fructose, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and 2 tablespoons whole

wheat flour. Sprinkle over the zucchini slices and toss to coat evenly. Place zucchini slices into a greased

8 or 9 inch square baking pan. Mix the remaining ingredients together to make the crumb topping.

Distribute it evenly over the zucchini. Bake for 45 minutes, until topping is browned and crispy.

May be served warm, cold or at room temperature
