Yield

Makes 2 servings

Ingredients

2 tablespoons low-fat granola with almonds
Nonstick cooking spray
1 red apple (8 ounces), such as Gala, diced in 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon dried sweetened cranberries
1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice or ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon diet margarine
1 packet sugar substitute
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 tablespoons low-fat vanilla ice cream

Preparation

  1. Place granola in small resealable food storage bag and crush lightly to form coarse crumbs. Set aside. Heat large skillet over medium heat until hot; coat with cooking spray. Add apples, cranberries and apple pie spice. Cook 4 minutes or until apples are just tender, stirring frequently.
  2. Remove from heat, stir in margarine, sugar substitute and almond extract. Spoon into 2 dessert bowls or dessert plates. Sprinkle with granola and spoon ice cream on top. Serve immediately.

Note

You may make apple mixture up to 8 hours in advance and top with granola and ice cream at time of serving. To rewarm crisp, microwave apple mixture (before adding granola and ice cream) 20 to 30 seconds on HIGH or until slightly heated.
