skinny apple pie (for one!)

skinny apple pie | my skinny sweet tooth

Apple pie is my husbands favorite dessert. So with his birthday on Monday, I offered to make him his own apple pie.

“No diet tricks, I swear! I’ll use real butter and everything!”

Consequently, I was just suckered into making a high calorie/point dessert that I knew I couldn’t have. But gosh darn it, I want pie, too. I want to sit with him and have dessert on his birthday. Call me selfish or sneaky, but I was going to have apple pie. Heck, I may just make an entire pie just for me 🙂 So that I did. 🙂

This dessert gives you the perfect reason to be selfish. No sharing needed (or recommended), meaning the whole pie is for you. Yes, JUST FOR YOU! Don’t we deserve that every now and then? Something all to ourselves? Well, whether you enjoy this in front of your kids/husband or in the closet with the door locked, just remember this moment is all yours. But, to save yourself from any guilt-ridden feelings if your in company of others, your best bet is to make more than one. Or in my case, a fat-filled one to detour them my husband from mine. Hehe.

No worries though! This recipe is super simple, comes together quickly and has less than 5 ingredients (Pie dough not being one of them. We’re using tortillas! Trust me, it’s ok!). 😉

Oh, and did I mention that this apple pie has no fat. No? Well, this pie has 0g of fat! Awesome. Let’s see a comparison, shall we?

Marie Callenders Apple Pie: 680 calories, 32g fat. 19pp
my skinny apple pie: 297 calories, 0g fat. 6pp

That right there is the perfect reason to eat a guilt-free “homemade” pie. THE whole PIE! 🙂

Enough with my selfish rant. 😉 I’d like to send a huge “Happy Birthday” to my love. I can’t wait to enjoy his birthday dessert with him. He’s definitely the “apple of my eye”. 😉 HA!


skinny apple pie:
Yeilds 1 Serving
Points Per Serving: 6pp*

(*Again, don’t you just love the Recipe Builder? Ha! Without adding my apple, it came to 4pp. Track as you’d like, but I’m using the apple as points. So 6pp it is!)

1 medium apple, peeled & diced small (I used an organic pink lady)
1T light brown sugar (packed)
1/4t cinnamon
2 whole wheat tortillas** (I used Olé High Fiber tortillas; very soft tortillas work well here for sealing)
cooking spray for top (I used coconut oil spray)

•Place the other tortilla on top and fold in the edges while pinching them together.

•Spray the top with cooking spray & make 4 cuts for the steam to escape. Looks like an apple pie doesn’t it? 🙂

•Bake for 25-30min keeping a close eye during the end to ensure proper browning. (broil if needed for color) No one likes a burnt crust. 😛
**Note: the top “crust” will be slightly tough when baked (it is a tortilla after all). But feel free to get your hands in there to tear some of the “crust” open. Careful, of course, to not burn yourself.

Since we sprayed the baking dish, you can pull it right out after it cools slightly, or enjoy it as is.

•Top with a dollop of whipped topping for an additional 1pp! 😉

Let me just say, my apartment smells amazing. The apple pie god’s are definitely impressed with this one 😉 I took plenty of pictures for you to drool over. You’re welcome 🙂
