This is a slight naughtier version of my heathy apple rings. Although both equally delicious, sometimes that little devil on the shoulder shouts a lot louder than the good guy. Gosh, he’s so annoying. But as my journey gets farther and farther along, that voice is becoming distant. It seems there’s a new guy in the mix: the “best of both worlds” guy. I like him. We get along quite well 😉
So as I’m staring at my husbands Girl Scout cookie stash (the samoas!), the “best of both worlds” guy and I come up with this. It’s got the crunch of a cookie, and classic taste of a samoa. (I even added peanut butter! oh my!) However, these are a little messier, but that’s just more fun 🙂 Here’s another break down for you!
5 samoa girl scout cookies: 10pp
5 apple ring samoas (w/ pb): 4pp
Umm … yes. Plus, the apple rings are so much bigger. And 99% of the time, bigger is better. The other 1% are my hips; definitely bigger is not better here …
apple ring samoas:
Yeilds: 5 or so apple rings
Serving Size: 5 or so apple rings
Points Per Serving: 4pp
1 large apple
2T powdered peanut butter (PB2), prepared
1/2 serving of brownie batter dip*
1-2T caramel (I use 0pp Walden Farms Caramel Dip)
1t shredded coconut
*mix 16g Trader Joes Reduced Guilt Brownie mix, a dash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and 1t truwhip light (whipped topping). You could also use Walden Farms Chocolate Sauce/Dip for even lower points, but I really enjoy the flavor of the brownie dip 😉
⋅Start by coring the apple and slicing into rings (at least 5).
⋅Top each ring with PB2.
⋅Warm up the caramel to a pourable consistency.
⋅Drizzle on the brownie batter and caramel.
⋅Top with coconut.
