I just love fruity desserts! I think apple pie is my favorite. I have already created a Healthy Apple Pie. So, naturally, I had to create a healthier version of an apple cobbler!
This so good that you would never know it was healthy. The secret is slow cooking the apple filling in the crock pot, the natural sugars in the apple will come out more. So that is what I did. Another secret: adding a lot of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg will give a dish a sense of being sweeter than it is. It’s like a trick of the senses.
Healthy Apple Cobbler!
For the filling:
Place everything in the crock pot and turn on high for the first hour and then turn to low for an additional 3 hours. Your house will smell amazing in the process!
When the apples are done cooking, place them in a glass baking dish and preheat your oven to 350. I used an 8X8 dish. There will be some extra liquid left, so remove the apple mixture with a slotted spoon. I saved the leftover liquid and used it as a topping for pancakes. I actually did the apples the night before and put them in the fridge over night.
For the topping:
Place everything in the food processor and mix until the oats start to stick together. Sprinkle oat mixture over the top of the apples and bake in the oven for about 25 minutes. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! I had to stop my husband from eating it all before I had the chance to photograph it.
