Pair some extra apples with a free night and Christine will most likely be found in the kitchen in between some reality television. Tonight I decided to watch some more episodes of the Newsroom that I have been trying to catch up on! Can we please just discuss how fabulous this show it? I literally can’t get enough and can’t understand why I didn’t watch it earlier. But, I won’t complain. Having an entire season at your fingertips is definitely up my alley. None of that waiting an entire week on the edge of your seat. If you haven’t watched yet, you should definitely check it out on HBO On Demand or HBO Go.
But back to the apples, my best friend made apple chips today, so I couldn’t help but give them a try too! These chips will make a nice snack during the day when you want something to munch on. Just slice them up, sprinkle a little sugar and cinnamon, and bake away. Won’t take too long for these little guys to get crisp.When slicing my apples to make the chips I didn’t know what to do with the leftover dome shaped end slices. This is when the gears starting turning. Now I don’t want to be wasteful right?
Hello mini apple cobblers! At less than 75 calories per cobbler, you don’t have to feel bad about indulging after dinner. I always need something sweet after I eat and this definitely hit the spot! I don’t have a ton of pictures of the cobbler portion when I was making it, but this is a homemade recipe I just threw together that turned out fabulous!
Gala Apples: 6 small* (I used most of them for chips and just the ends for the cobbler)
Applesauce: ½ cup
Oats: 1/8 cup
Brown Sugar: 1/8 cup
Cinnamon Sugar: 1 teaspoon
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cut your apples into thin slices. If you don’t want to make the chips as well, you could just use 1 apple and cut it into 6 slices.
Get out your cupcake tin and place one apple slice at the bottom.
Now it’s time to make your cobbler center! Mix your brown sugar and applesauce together in a bowl. Then add the rest of your ingredients to the bowl and fold in. Spoon an equal amount of the cobbler mixture on top of each apple slice. Now you totally could have used a dough to make a little pie crust on top, but hey, let’s try to keep it healthy for now!
Place your mini apple cobblers in the oven for 30 minutes and then let them cool for 5 minutes to set up. Remove from the cupcake tin and you are ready to eat! Pair your mini cobbler with a little fat free whipped cream or vanilla icecream if you’re in the mood to splurge! Remember these mini cobblers are less than 75 calories! Treat yourself after a long day with this tasty dessert!
