Faux Apple Crisp

3 large apples (jona golds arerepparttar best, in my opinion) Cinammon Sprouted wheat bread (I use Ezechial cinammon raisin fromrepparttar 113094 health food store - 2 slices, they are small) 9" square casserole dish Makes 4 servings

Preheat oven to 375F. Spray your casserole dish with a non stick spray.

Peel, core, and slice your apples thinly into your baking dish. Sprinkle with cinammon (as much or as little as to your taste).

I take my bread fromrepparttar 113095 freezer and grind it into crumbs inrepparttar 113096 blender. Now sprinkle evenly over your apples. Take a spoon and dish down here and there throughrepparttar 113097 apples, so that some ofrepparttar 113098 crumbs fall betweenrepparttar 113099 apples.

Bake uncovered in your oven 40 mins. or until your apples are cooked tender.

Cool and serve with flavored yogurt, artificially sweetened.

You can swap outrepparttar 113100 apples for blueberries, fresh or frozen. Just coatrepparttar 113101 berries first with 2 tsp flour.

It's not been as hard an adjustment as we thought it would be and we are both eating healthier than before, that has been a bonus for us both.
