My husband has a BIG sweet tooth. Me, not so much. So for me to prevent him from going to the grocery store and buying TONS of sweets I try to make something every now and then for him that’s “healthy”. This past weekend I made Apple & Pear Crumble with Vanilla Yogurt. I got the recipe out of a Nutrisystem recipe book. I thought it was pretty tasty. Light and not too sweet. My husband thought it wasn’t sweet enough and he didn’t like the lemon flavor. SMH Therefore, our son Bryce and I ended up eating all of it. 🙂 Couldn’t let it go to waste. (My friend Hannah would be proud) The recipe and pictures are below. What “healthy” desserts do you make?
Apple & Pear Crumble with Vanilla Yogurt
Prep time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 30-40 minutes
-2 medium apples (such as Granny Smith or Royal Gala)
-2 firm ripe pears (such as Packham or Anjou)
-2 tsp fresh lemon juice
-1/2 cup rolled oats
-3 1/2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
-1/2 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
-2 tbsp. canola or olive oil margarine
-1 tbsp. brown sugar
-1/2 cup chopped pecans
-1 cup low-fat, reduced-sugar vanilla yogurt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Peel, quarter, and core the apples and pears. Cut into thin slices, sprinkle with the lemon juice, and toss to coat the fruit. Divide among eight 1/2 cup ovenproof dishes. Set aside. To make the Crumble Topping, process half of the rolled oats in a food processor until finely ground and resembling flour. Transfer to a medium bowl. Sift the all-purpose, baking powder, and cinnamon together into the bowl over the rolled oat “flour.” Add the margarine and use your fingertips to rub in until evenly combined. Stir in the brown sugar, pecans and remaining rolled oats. Sprinkle the Crumble Topping over the fruit in the dished. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the topping is golden and the fruit is tender when pierced with a skewer. Top the warm crumble with two tablespoons of yogurt and serve.
