Healthy Apple Crisp

     Since I started my High Protein Low Carb Dessert Blog, I have NEVER felt deprived.  As you can see from my Healthy Apple Crisp picture, it is an inviting decadent plate of yumminess!  With the Holidays coming up, this recipe will be a perfect addition to any celebration!  Each of the 8 servings are only 184 calories, 15g net carbs and 16g protein (macros don't include Whipped Topping garnish).  Whether this is a post meal reward or a daily healthy snack it doesn't matter, just make sure you get this in your life!  ;)

Ingredients for 8 servings~
2 Quest Apple Pie Protein Bars
1 Quest Sea Salt Protein Chips
1/2 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, melted
1/2 cup Oats
2 scoops Quest Salted Caramel Protein Powder
24oz (approx 3 Fuji Apples), cored and diced
Dash Cinnamon

     Microwave unwrapped Quest Bars for 15 seconds, then pat flat as possible on Silpat lined cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 for 5 minutes, cool and break into small pieces.  Drop in Magic Bullet and blend to crumbs, then add Sea Salt Protein Chips (that have been crunched in the bag) to Magic Bullet and continue to grind to crumbs.  Add to bowl, and stir in 1/4 cup Erythritol, Coconut Oil, Oats, .5 scoop Quest Salted Caramel Protein Powder, and dash Cinnamon, set aside.  Meanwhile, core and dice Fuji Apples, toss with 1/4 cup Erythritol, 1.5 scoop Quest Salted Caramel Protein Powder and dash Cinnamon.  Pour Apple mixture in Pam sprayed cake pan and top with Crumbs.  Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.  Garnish with Whipped Topping, if desired.  Enjoy  :)
