Oh la laaa my first attempt at making a homemade healthy apple pie is a must-share-recipe for the Foodie-ness blog! Apples are in season and last weekend was so rainy that it was the perfect occasion to bake a healthier version of grandma’s classic apple pie. This recipe makes an apple pie high in protein, low in carbs, no sugar and tastes ah-ma-zing-ly GOOD! Cheers to smart snacking for fitgirls!
I can’t get enough of the combination of pie with a fruit. I simply love the sweet taste of apples! And how about the healthy facts of apples? Apples are high in fiber and Vitamin C, low in calories and contain NO fat. Conclusion: A no-guilt piece of apple pie just makes the perfect treat for us girls that try to stick to a healthy lifestyle.
