Helpful hints

  • Five medium apples yield approximately 5 cups after peeled, cored and sliced.
  • For a lower carbohydrate diet replace the brown sugar with 1/3 cup Splenda brown sugar blend. Carbohydrate is reduced to 30 grams per 1/2 cup serving.
  • Oatmeal is a higher phosphorus cereal and may be suggested as a food to limit. This recipe provides only 1/8-cup oatmeal per serving; phosphorus is comparable to many other acceptable dessert recipes.
