Diabetic Apple and Peanut Butter Chips

Ingredients:

3 cups peeled and sliced apple
1/3 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup sugar substitute
1/2 cup white all purpose flour
1 cup cooking rolled oats
¼ cup margarine
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the following ingredients - apple, peanut butter chips and 2 tablespoons flour. Transfer this mixture into the baking pan. Take another bowl and combine oats, sugar substitute, remaining flour, margarine and cinnamon. Mix well the ingredients and add on top of the apple layer. Bake for about 45-50 minutes, until the apple slices turn tender and soft. Remove and serve warm.
  2. These are some of the delicious dessert recipes with low sugar content. Instead of sugar substitute, you can use applesauce. Also, make sure that the margarine is free of skim milk and trans-fats. You can prepare different apple dessert recipes by substituting the ingredients. Apple crisp recipe prepared with chocolate chips also tastes good.
