Turkey Soft Tacos and Healthy Apple Crumble [Dinner and Dessert #4]

Dinner and Dessert 4

Love apple pie but don’t want the fat or calories? Not to worry, with this healthy version, you can indulge guilt free.  Apples are full of dietary fiber so will do an excellent job at keeping your hunger in check.

This recipe also replaces the conventional high fat pie crust with a much healthier version full of protein that will fuel your hard working muscles.  Added to that are plenty of healthy fats, which will help lower cholesterol levels, stabilize blood glucose levels, and help ensure you have energy to spare for hours.

Feel free to top this apple crumble with any other nut of choice as well or even drizzle on a little low sugar maple syrup for something completely different.
