One of our all-time favorite desserts... So perfect with ice cream warm out of the oven. I made some last night for hubby, and ate my choco pudding while he had his apple crisp. A little hard... :-(
Is there *any* way to make this work? Seems to me impossible without going into crossover territory, or just plain cheating if I want a nice crunchy top which is only achieved with a good deal of butter. Even plan approved ice cream and sweeteners still stump me as to what category this would be in.
There is a baked apple recipe in the book which would be similar, but not quite the same, I know. The topping is the hardest. You could try slicing an apple, and making a low fat sauce with water and flavorings like lemon juice, stevia, cinnamon, maple flavoring, or whatever you like, and thickening it with glucomannan. Then you could take just a bit of rolled oats and mix in 1 tsp of melted butter and whatever spices you like, and sprinkling that on top of the apples and sauce. Bake it until it's done, and you could have it with some Tummy Tucking Ice Cream. I would hold off the 1 tsp of added cream in the ice cream though - it works fine with only almond milk. Or you could have it with nonfat Greek yogurt, which is delicious also. This is E, of course. It has a bit more carbs than I think a regular E snack/dessert would have because of the extra oats, but depending on the amount you used it's not too much more. It should be fine I think if you have it say after a Fuel Pull meal, or just make sure it's been about 3 hours since your last meal. It could be your E "meal." Anyway, not exactly a real recipe, but it's an idea.
Emily, I think that's a good idea. Maybe toast the oats on a cookie sheet like making granola to get them REALLY crunchy and top the baked apple AFTER baking, right before serving. If you aren't a purist, maybe you could even toast the oats in the microwave like joseph's pitas?

Found this on plan to eat on a paleo board but edited slightly to make plan approved. Haven't tested it but you could try it! 3 cups apples sliced or chopped 1 Tbs almond meal or other s approved flour or starch stevia of choice 1 tsp cinnamon 1/8 tsp salt 1 Tbs water 1/2 cup oats 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp coconut oil or other dairy-free oil or shortening Directions | Numbered...
Preheat oven to 375.
Grease a 9x9 casserole dish with oil or shortening.
Combine apples through water in a bowl, and pour into casserole dish.
Combine oats through coconut oil in a small bowl with fingers, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle on top of fruit.
Bake 35 minutes, or until fruit is bubbly.

mandy140: Where do I find the recommended items and where to buy them? I thought they would be on this web site. Like THM Sweet Blend, Whey powder, Gluccomannan, Konjac noodles, Chana Dahl beans. I can't seem to find my way around.

mandy140: I have a question about Whey Protein Powder. I read Serene's article on Whey, friend or foe? I checked Swanson's web site and there are so many Whey Powders there I can't find the one Serene recommended; the CFM. How do I know which it is? Thanks.

farmerblacks: I did THM for a few months and loved it. I got away from it when I had to have 2 surgeries in 6 weeks. I would like to get back to it, but now my husband has to be on a low sodium diet. Are there any THM families that also do low sodium?

vintagejva: If brown rice is acceptable on THM, can I then eat brown rice pasta?

robbiesnest56: Do you make the ice cubes out of whole fat and low fat coconut milk so you have both options? Are they both S?[br]

ggwells: Ok new to the site. Want to keep it simple. I understand not to mix high fat with carbs. I love having eggs for breakfast sometimes. So can I have egg burrito with bacon. Then have to S meals for lunch and dinner?
Aug 25, 2014 5:18:51 GMT -5
steffanie3: All coconut things are best thought of as S, but you could use a small amount for FP robbiesnest56
Aug 27, 2014 0:55:38 GMT -5
steffanie3: ggwells, if you purchase some low-carb tortillas you could have a S meal and enjoy burrito. For how it effects lunch and dinner on THM you simply need to wait three hours before you next meal and switching fuels
