Fall recipe: Apple pie bites

  • Apples have a high water content along with carbohydrates and simple sugars but their glycemic index (GI) is low, which makes an apple a good snack if you have diabetes.
  • Apples are a good source of Vitamin C and potassium.
  • One apple contains about 17% of your daily fiber needs.

This yummy dessert features one of fall’s favorite fruits - the apple. With just 130 calories, it’s the perfect-size bite of something sweet. It’s also great made with pear or peach slices. Makes 8 servings.

Ingredients

1 small baking apple, seeded and cut into 8 wedges
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon sugar

In a small bowl, combine sugars and cinnamon. Mix. Sprinkle evenly over crescent triangles.

Place one apple slice at the short end of each crescent triangle. Roll.
