Lowfat Individual Apple Pies

Here comes November and I’m warming things up in my home by baking up yummy treats from the preserved garden. All though the various sweet and sugary temptations are hard to resist, you don’t have to break your diet to enjoy the seasonal fare. Certified nutritionist, personal trainer and exercise physiologist, Franci Cohen, has provided recipes for fall foods that won’t break your belt. I shared with you her amazing Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins and Chocolate Ghost Pretzels for Halloween and I can’t wait to share with you these tasty lowfat individual Apple Pies. I love them because I’m not tempted to cut my piece of pie larger with these individual servings ready to enjoy!

  7. Cover the top of the apple in a lattice pattern with pie crust strips.
  8. Place apples in an 8×8 pan and add just enough water to the cover the bottom of the pan. Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.
