If you follow my running blog, Run Mom Go, you know I’ve been on a journey towards better nutrition within my journey towards my first ultramarathon, in May.
So in my journey, I’ve begun to embrace food as fuel and I LOVE being able to fit fun foods into my daily numbers. I also enjoy a good challenge. So when I found these at the local Publix, I just knew I had to go for it.
There were three flavors on sale: natural, cinnamon French toast, and cherry vanilla. Each pack is less than 100 calories and pack amazing flavor!
The recipe calls for a caramel sauce but these apples are already cooked. So I essentially just put the apples into the pie crusts and put a small amount of a sugared egg wash on top. Baked them and then enjoyed.
Apple Pie-lettes makes 9
- One box pillsbury pie crusts
- 3 packages of Big Slice apples
- 1 egg
- 1/8 cup sugar
Preheat the oven to 350. Portion out one pie crust to 22-24g pieces. This should give you 9 pieces of dough. Roll this out to about 2.5-3 inch rounds. Place on a cookie sheet lined with foil and sprayed with no-stick spray.
Cut the other pie crust into strips and place one or two strips, in small pieces, across the tops of the fruit. I put approximately 14-17g of crust on each one.
Whisk together the egg, sugar and healthy dash of cinnamon and spread 5g (approximately one tsp) over each pie.
Although each type ofapple has slightly different nutritional info, I just averaged them all when entering the recipe into my food journal app.
This recipe is very macro friendly.
