A Safe Bet!
Baked apple desserts just scream "FALL!" (Well, not literally. That would be terrifying. But also kinda cool!) So now that autumn is here, make this super-delish, hot-n-fruity dish. Mmmmmmm...

Ingredients:
8 slices light white bread
5 Fuji apples, cored and thinly sliced
1 tbsp. lemon juice
3 tbsp. brown sugar (not packed), divided
2 tsp. cinnamon, divided
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
1/4 cup light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
3/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/2 cup light vanilla soymilk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Optional topping: Cool Whip Free  

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a 9" X 13" baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.

Lightly toast bread and tear into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.

Place apple slices in a large bowl and toss with lemon juice. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp. brown sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and salt. Mix well and set aside.

Place cereal in a blender or food processor with 1 tbsp. brown sugar and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Grind to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Transfer to a second bowl. Add butter and mix until evenly dispersed; mixture will be crumbly. Set aside.

In another bowl, combine egg substitute, soymilk, vanilla extract, and remaining 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Mix well. Gently stir in bread pieces. Transfer mixture to the bowl with the apple slices and gently stir to combine.

Evenly spoon apple-bread mixture into the baking pan and top with crumb mixture.

Bake in the oven until firm and lightly browned, 35 - 40 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly, and then slice into sixths. If you like, top each serving with a dollop of Cool Whip. Enjoy!

Betty Trubble
Brown Betty is kind of like a cross between a cobbler and a bread pudding. You've got that sweet, soft, starchy part, and then there's the spiced fruit and crumbly topping. But how 'bout that calorie count?! Uhhhh... yeah... it's not low in any way, shape, or form. The bread, the butter, the sugar... AHHHHHHHH! But we don't want to be Debbie Downers -- we've come up with an amazing swap so you CAN happily chew this classic, comforting, and apple-icious dessert... guilt-free! This one was too easy, people. Our Betty is chock-full of light bread, Fuji apples, light butter, and more awesomeness that also happens to be HG-friendly. And to all the Negative Nancies out there, rest assured; our version is totally delicious. (No offense to anyone named Nancy -- unless, of course, you're negative.)
