This recipe gives an apple pie a healthy makeover! It replaces refined sugars, unhealthy fats, and a scoop of vanilla ice-cream with nutritious syrupy apples resting on top of a whole grain toast covered with creamy (and protein-rich) ricotta cheese. My daughter loves to wake up to the sight of this apple pie on her breakfast plate. Both my husband and I love this quick, easy, and absolutely mouthwatering treat as well.

How to Make Apple Pie-Riccotta Toast

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet, heat canola oil and add sliced apples. Saute on medium-low heat for about 2-3 minutes, or until apples start to soften.
  2. Add agave nectar, palm, sugar, apple pie spice, lemon juice, and water and bring it to a boil. Simmer over low heat until the apples are tender and sauce is syrupy, about 10 minutes.
  3. In a medium-size bowl, combine ricotta cheese with lemon zest.
  4. Spread a generous amount of the ricotta-lemon peel mixture onto toasted bread slices. Using a slotted spoon, spoon the apples over it. Drizzle with the syrup. Serve immediately.
