Dr. Steven A. Schnur’s new book, The Reality Diet, has recipes the entire family will enjoy–including the kids. Packed with yummy desserts (non-sugar), high-energy breakfasts, and easy-to-fix dinners, we know you’ll enjoy them all, including this one for Apple Streusel.

Streusels, along with cobblers and crisps, are American classics. But like most things American, streusel has its roots in another country, in this case Germany—and Streusel is a German word meaning “sprinkling.”

1/4 cup 2:90 granola

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon sugar substitute

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons light margarine, chilled and cut into pieces

Non-stick cooking spray

1 large unpeeled apple, cored and sliced

One container 2:90 vanilla yogurt with fiber (providing up to 90 calories)

Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, mix together the granola, brown sugar, sugar substitute, and cinnamon. Using a pastry cutter or 2 knives, cut the margarine into the granola until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

Spray a small, round (5-inch-diameter) baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Evenly arrange the apple slices in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with the streusel topping and bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until bubbling. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve from the baking dish topped with the yogurt.
