HG Apple iCobbler

So I found this one while searching for an Apple Crisp substitute. What drew me in? The low point value of 2..wait for it, wait for it..for an entire CUP of this awesomeness! Next time I think I will portion it out into glass containers for easy access. It tastes even better with some slow churned Edy's vanilla ice cream on it! Double YUM! P.S. HERE is the original recipe..I actually followed this one almost to a T!

HG Apple iCobbler

* 3 cups peeled apple chunks (I used Jonathan and Braeburn)
* 1/2 cup Fiber One Original cereal
* 2 sheets (8 crackers) low-fat honey graham crackers (I used regular)
* 2 Tbsp fat-free liquid egg substitute
* 2 Tbsp. sugar free applesauce
* 3 Tbsp. Splenda, divided (closer to 2T.)
* 2 Tbsp. brown sugar (not packed)
* 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
* 2 tsp. cinnamon, divided
* 1/2 tsp. vanilla
* 1/4 tsp. salt


1. Preheat oven to 400.

2. Combine 2/3c. cold water with 2T. brown sugar, 1T. cornstarch, 1/2t. cinnamon, 1/2t. vanilla, 1/4t. salt, and 1T. Splenda. Stir well.

3. In a medium pot combine apples with the water mixture and heat over medium, stirring occasionally. Once the liquid thickens to a syrupy consistency and begins to bubble, reduce to low and cover. Simmer 5 minutes.

4. Transfer apple mixture to baking dish and set aside.

5. Break 8 graham crackers into pieces in a blender and add the 1/2c. Fiber One. Grind to breadcrumb-like consistency.

6. Transfer crumbs to microwave safe dish and add 2T. egg substitute, 2T. applesauce, 1 1/2t. cinnamon, and remaining 2T. Splenda (I used 1 1/2). Stir well.

7. Microwave for 1 minute, then use a fork to break up toughened mixture. Allow to cool a few minutes, then transfer back to blender to pulse until uniform in consistency.

8. Evenly distriubte topping over apples and bake in oven 10 minutes.

9. Allow to cool slightly. Serve with ice cream!
