Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Fuji Apples

     The crispness in the air matches the crispness in the apples this time of year!  It's prime time for some of your favorite varieties of apples.  I wanted to make a big fancy dessert with apples, but then I re considered because I LOVE apples so much, the way I enjoy them best is PLAIN!!!  So I asked myself, why not make a healthy Cookie Dough to dip your slices!?  Each of the four servings makes a scant 1/3 cup, 103 calories, 9g net carbs and 9g protein per serving.  Lastly, here are 3 fun facts to keep in mind with apples this Fall~Don't wash your apples until you are ready to eat them (unwashed apples store longer than washed ones).  Store your apples in a cool, dark place to extend their shelf life until you're read to use them.  While "one bad apple can spoil the bunch," you can use bruised apples in delicious recipes, from applesauce and apple butter to smoothies and apple chips baked in the oven.  And, just in case you were wondering, Fuji's are my absolute favorites!  ;)
