Caramelized Apples

My Caramelized Apples

I told you about my snacking problem in the last post.

Well, when I’ve been stuck at home for 2 days because of a hurricane, I end up wanting to snack a lot, so I’ve been coming up with healthful, yummy snacks.

Today, I tried this. Heat up a cast iron skillet to medium high heat (doesn’t have to be cast iron, but the high heat it carries helps with the caramelization process). I cut up an apple into chunks (I think I might try thinner pieces next time to get more surface area to touch the pan) and I put them in a bowl and mixed the up with a teaspoon of sugar. I put 1 teaspoon of olive oil in the pan and when it was nice and hot, threw the apples in. Don’t stir them around too often because you want to let them get caramelized and mixing them too much won’t allow them to do that. I probably cooked them for about 10 minutes and that’s it!

This ends up being just 1 Weight Watchers point because of the oil.

Try it out!
