Reduced-Fat Apple Crisp
Would cutting fat and calories give us the chance to put the apples front and center?
Why This Recipe Works
We mimicked the thick, sweet, sugary filling by treating the apples in two ways: We mashed some apples to thicken the sauce and sliced others for added texture. To cut down on calories, we traded the nuts for Grape-Nuts cereal.
Traditional recipes have 540 calories, 23 grams of fat, and 11 grams of saturated fat per 1-cup serving. Our changes brought the numbers down to 300 calories, 6 grams of fat, and 4 gram of saturated fat.
