Apple Crisp for DIABETES.

 

Miss America 1999, Nicole Johnson, joined me on my show to share this favorite recipe of hers for people with diabetes. As a diabetic herself, she knows that eating healthy doesn't mean sacrificing flavor. And this delicious dessert is one great example of that. It's something we can all enjoy!

Serves: 6 to 8

        6 medium apples, cored, peeled and thinly sliced

        1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided

        1 tablespoon sugar

        1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

        1/2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats

        3 tablespoons light brown sugar

        2 tablespoons reduced-fat margarine

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Coat a 9-inch microwave-safe pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the apples, 2 tablespoons flour, the sugar, and cinnamon; mix well.

3. Spoon into the pie plate and cover with waxed paper.

4. Microwave on high power for 4 to 6 minutes, or until the apples are soft.

5. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup flour, the oats, and brown sugar; mix well.

6. With a fork, blend in the margarine until crumbly; sprinkle over the apples.

7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.

8. Serve warm.
