Dig out your hand blender and get ready to bake because this delicious low-fat recipe by food blogger Rawya Ali is a guilt-free indulgence everyone can enjoy.
In the recipe, applesauce replaced the butter, which is very popular in baking.
The recipe usually uses 1 full cup of brown sugar, but if you don't feel like using a full cup, you can use 1/2 a cup, but it will not be as crunchy as it should.
1/4 a cup of oats was also used as a replacement for sugar, this is important because reducing sugar in a recipe not only affects the taste but the volume as well.
2 tsp of applesauce
1.5 cups flour
1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips or raisins (optional)
Mix Cream butter and sugar, then add applesauce, egg and vanilla, followed by flour, baking soda, salt, butter mixture, and oats.
In a tray lined with baking paper, smooth the mixture (it will be sticky), until it forms a 1cm disc, try to make a rectangle, and bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 min at 190 degrees, let cool for 15 min, slice like fingers and let them rest.
Use a tablespoon of water for each apple, which amounts to about 4 tablespoons of applesauce and a squeeze of lemon.
Peel the apples, cut them, and place them in water, lemon, and sprinkle cinnamon (optional) over low heat for 20 minutes. Then use the hand blender and it is all done.
The mixture can be made in large quantities and stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
