Healthy Quick Mini Apple Pie Recipe

I am so excited to share this mini apple pie recipe I created!  I even had trouble coming up with a name for it because I'm so excited and want to call it Super EasyLow Fat, Mini Single Serve, 5 Minute Quick,  Apple Pie Tart!  That's the only name I can think of captures this recipe!   Seriously, it's yummy, super easy, only takes a few minutes to make, and is much healthier than a traditional apple pie or apple tart (it's sort of in between a pie and a tart).  

Okay, enough with the build up, check out this awesome mini apple pie recipe.  You only need four ingredients: an apple, honey, ground cinnamon, and a tortilla (I use Trader Joe's Reduced Carb Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas because they're healthy and a nice small size):

Thinly slice half of an apple and place the apple slices on a tortilla:

Drizzle the apples with honey and sprinkle generously with cinnamon:

Fold up the corners of the tortilla to create a little apple pie pouch.  I used toothpicks to keep the sides of the tortilla in place:

Place the tart in the toaster oven and bake/toast until the apples are soft (this took about 5 minutes in my toaster oven on the "toast" feature).

That's it!  5 minutes later you have a yummy single serve apple pie/tart.  Depending on the type of tortilla you use, this apple tart will come to under 150 calories and 1.5 grams of fat.  I think it's a great after dinner snack for when you're craving dessert and want something quick and low fat.

Very delicious. I spread sour cream on tortilla first and added some raisins.
