Can you believe today is the first day of fall already?! I am always amazed at how quickly the summer flies by. But, although I will miss the warm weather and the longer days, I can’t help but be excited for all of the amazing fall foods that are now in season. Especially apples!
I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of apple crisp! It’s one of my favorite desserts. But unfortunately, it’s typically packed full of added sugars and belly-bloated refined carbohydrates. That’s why I decided to create this simple recipe- which I hope you will love as much as I do: HEALTHY APPLE CRISP STICKS!
2 large apples, sliced into sticks
1/2 Cup prepared pancake batter (I used my favorite whole grain instant mix)
3 Tbs cinnamon
¼ cup rolled oats
2 Tbs brown sugar
1 sheet parchment paper
Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix together cinnamon, oats, and brown sugar. Slice apples into small sticks. Dip each stick into pancake batter. Then roll each stick in dry cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place each stick onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes or until pancake batter has set and apples are soft. Serve warm or chilled.
