apple cobbler, less than 200 calories in less than 5 minutes!

I had to share this recipe with you. It is SO YUMMY and less than 200 calories. This is from a cookbook I picked up at Bed Bath & Beyond called "Hungry Girl."


This recipe is for a breakfast / snack that turns out just like apple cobbler. (It would be incredible over frozen vanilla yogurt!)

ingredients

(Recipe From Hungry Girl)
CREAMY HOT APPLE BREAKFAST WITH BROWN SUGAR CRUNCH

PER SERVING (entire recipe): 189 calories, 3g fat, 385mg sodium, 40g carbs, 3g fiber, 19g sugars, 2g protein

Ingredients:
2 no-calorie sweetener packets
1-1/2 teaspoons Jello sugar-free, fat-free instant pudding mix, vanilla
1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash salt
1 cup peeled apple chunks (any sweet, not tart, variety)
1 Nature Valley Maple Brown Sugar Crunchy Granola Bar (half a 2-bar package) **
** my store does not have this flavor, so I used Nature Valley Crunchy Oats & Honey

Directions: Place sweetener, pudding mix, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt in microwave-safe medium-large bowl. Add 1/3 cup cold water and stir until blended. Place apple chunks in bowl and toss in the liquid mixture.
I use an apple peeler/slicer - less than a minute to dice up a gala apple!
Cover the dish and microwave for 2-1/2 minutes. Allow it to thicken and cool for a few minutes before removing from microwave.
Here is that Oats & Honey granola bar crunched up

Meanwhile, place the granola bar in a sealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin or can, until you have small crumbly pieces. Once apple mixture is cool enough to handle, stir in the granola pieces and devour immediately!
Makes 1 serving.

A little bowl of yumminess!

Thanks for the helpful info. When I learned about getting a sober coach it changed my life.
