Apple Fries

Apple Fritter, Apple Pie...But what about Apple FRIES!!!


So- it's an E day and I'm sitting at my computer meal planning for later in the day. Dessert? I'm feeling like an apple pie. I start to google apple pie and find these babies... Apple Fries! I'll give credit where credit is due. BUT...This recipe contains BS. (Bread and Sugar) so no need to even click on it. I was able to 'THM-it-up' and BOY was it a winner!! It has a satisfying crunch on the outside and on the inside a warm burst of sweetness. Kinda like a steak fry but sweet.  So let's get to it...

Preheat your oven to 425.  I just built a Jammed UP house and now I have a super fly oven.  It has convection and I L.O.V.E. it!  My THM crackers are super crisp all the way thru using this setting!

In a bowl mix:
1/3 Oat Flour (This is FLOUR not Fiber.  Just grind up some oats for this but don't pulverize.  Leave some bits and pieces)
1-2 tsp cinnamon (just depends on how saucy your are)
2 Tbs Erythritol (NOT ground into a powder)
2 doonks of THM stevia
a heavy handed shake of nutmeg 
less of a heavy handed shake of cloves
1/8 tsp of salt (just a few shakes, really)


Give it a whirl with a spoon and you should have this...



See my bits and pieces of oats?


Next, in another bowl pour some liquid egg whites.
For those that need measurements...no more than 1/3 cup.

Now you have your dipping station ready to go!

I cut one Granny Smith apple into larger chunks...like so...

The Racking System is key!  You need a cooling type rack held by a cookie sheet.  I bought a small type cooling rack last Christmas when I wanted to start baking bacon in the oven.  It looks like this....

Nothin' fancy :)

Dip your apple wedges in the egg whites and then into your oat crumble.  I pressed hard on all sides to achieve a full coverage of crumble.


Bake for 10 minutes!
Yep!
That's it!

Let them cool for just a minute or less.  I think they are best warm.  You could make a greek vanilla sweet yogurt to go with them.  I am super impressed with the crisp!  





In a nutshell...

Ingredients:
1/3 Oat Flour (This is FLOUR not Fiber.  Just grind up some oats for this but don't pulverize.  Leave some bits and pieces)

1-2 tsp cinnamon (just depends on how saucy your are)
2 Tbs Erythritol (NOT ground into a powder)
2 doonks of THM stevia
a heavy handed shake of nutmeg 
less of a heavy handed shake of cloves
1/8 tsp of salt (just a few shakes, really)
1/3 cup egg whites
1 Granny Smith (or whatever you have) apple


Method:
Preheat oven to 425 convection.
Mix all ingredients together except for apples and egg whites.
Slice apple into wedges.
Dip apples into egg whites and then into apple crumble, pressing firmly.
Rig a rack system with a cooling type rack over a cookie sheet.  
Line apples on cooling rack, not overlapping.
Bake 10 mins.  


And now for the questions...because there are always questions...
I'm gonna play fortune teller and see if I can think of all the questions that will be asked.

1. Do you have to you use Convection.

No, it'll probably be fine

2. What if my Erythritol is already powdered?

It'll still be sweet, but I do think the granules add to the crunch.

3. What if I don't have a cooling rack to bake with?  Can I just use a cookie sheet?

I would think so, but turn the apples half way through.

Let me know if you have any others... ;)

Snickers Smoothie

ONE WORD.... Snickers!  Yep!  Makes your mouth and mind BUZZZZZZZZ!
This recipe was graciously shared to me by a trim healthy mama.  I am always skeptical when something says 'healthy' and has a name brand tagged on it.  Like brownies made with cottage cheese.  Or how about 'Doritos' kale chips!  C+C Music Factory comes to mind with "Things that make you go hmmmmmm!"  
BUT.................
This really has a Snickers-ish flare to it.  And- I love it.   Go all out on your extract.  I have friends that get theirs at Walmart, but quality verses quantity wins me over.  You usually have to use more of the cheap stuff to get that punch of flavor.  My favorite is Bakto.  The other spotlight in this Snickers Shake is Glucomannan.  You can read its wonderful qualities here.

NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}

I had a small amount of canned pumpkin left in my frig and created these on a whim. Not to build them up too much, but they remind me of those donut holes you buy in a box. I'm gonna steal the THM saying and say... Own It!! Make this your own. I just made these on the fly, but you can certainly put whatever spin you want on them! I love how the sisters encourage us to be our own chefs! Get creative & Make it work 
NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}: 1 c baking blend (homemade or THM brand)
1/2 c pure can pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
Splash caramel extract *optional, if you don't have it's okay*
Pinch of salt
1 Tb almond butter
1/2-1 Tb pumpkin pie spice, depending how spicy you like it
1 Tb coconut oil
Sweetener *the amount is gonna be questionable. There are so many different kinds out there. I make my own which probably can be compared to the Gentle Sweet. I did about 1/3 cup but dumped more in making it like 1/2 cup...BUT...I like super duper sweet stuff. Just taste as you go!  Erythrito…

The Shrinker

A drink that shrinks your waistline, gives you energy, improves your health and fights cancer? What in the world? Yes, it's all true!  Oolong tea can be purchases online, found in Asian markets and I even saw it at Publix.  




SHRINK the FAT...

**** Oolong improves vitality... prolongs lifespan... combats the aging of skin... treats eczema and rashes... prevents heart disease and cancer… reduces high blood pressure... it's a physical and mental stress reliever... strengthens teeth and prevents tooth decay... improves brain power... you get the picture. Best of all it makes a scrumptious drink called the "SHRINKER" and you get all these extras and more thrown in for good measure.  Oolong contains antioxidants that powerfully destroy free radicals. Research conducted by Dr Kenichi Yanagimoto from the university of California, showed that only 15 days of Oolong tea drinking enabled an incredible 50% reduction in free radicals.
Another study conducted by the academy of Tradi…
