This bowl of deliciousness can be made super healthy. The biscuit here is garnish but without it this dessert contains no added sugar, no fat but tonnes and tonnes of flavour. It tastes like apple pie and ice-cream but without any (unnecessary) guilt. The 'ice-cream' is actually just 0% fat greek yoghurt with vanilla mixed in.
On to the 'apple pie.'
4 Stewing Apples
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp all spice
1- Preheat oven to 180'C. Roughly dice the apples
2- Cover in the lemon juice as you go to prevent browning
3- Add the spices and mix well
4- Place in a ceramic bread tin and cover with tin foil.
5 - Bake for 30-40 minutes on the middle shelf.

It's that simple!!
As you can see I find this recipe perfect as it is. However if you find that you need more sweetness, or less bitterness then I have two suggestions. First, try adding a tiny pinch of salt. It sounds weird but apparently salt and bitter tastes use the same receptors on the tongue so salt can block out the bitterness. Then if you still need a little sweetness you can add honey or agave nectar.
This recipe makes new year's resolutions or healthy choices that much easier to stomach! Dessert is a very important part of a healthy diet! Healthy for body and soul! I make this throughout winter and absolutely love it. I would definitely recommend you try it, enjoy some January guilt free deliciousness and I will see you next week =)
