These tasty apple rolls are not only good but versatile and fun and easy to make. Have them for a quick dessert with some reduced fat whipped cream or non-fat whipped dairy product or as a snack or nice and warm with some scrambled eggs for breakfast. Just remember they are low fat and low calorie and will not taste like pie crust.  Hubby likes them too.
On Tasty Tuesday I try and not use any special ingredient but in the case of these rolls I will make an exception because the egg roll wrappers are carried by most grocery stores.  Look for them in the produce section.

One thing that makes this so easy is that I get to use two of my favorite kitchen gadgets - the apple peeler and the box chopper.  These two items make short work of the rolls.
 I used about 1/3 Truvia brown sugar to Truvia white sugar.

Just follow the instructions on the back of the wrapper package and easy peasy to make the rolls - almost zen like and really fun to make these.
Be sure and spray either a silpat mat or if you don't have one use parchment paper.
170 Calories in three of the wrappers + the calories in the filling.  Hubby gets two and I am happy with one.
Some light whipped cream or not - I prefer them just as they come out of the oven. I freeze the leftovers.
Or turn them over to serve to a group - they get very nice and brown on the back.

Apple Rolls

Preheat oven to 375°


2 apples, peeled, cored and diced (I used Fuji)
2 T Crasins, soaked first in water to soften
Juice of a lemon
1/3 cup sugar substitute I used Truvia and some Truvia Brown
3 T Wondra Flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
10 egg wrappers
1 T reduced fat butter, melted
2 t cinnamon sugar for dusting (I used real sugar)


Mix together the apples, Crasins, lemon and Truvia.  Add the flour, spices and salt.

Beat the egg and have a brush handy.

Spray your cooking sheet with non-stick spray (either a silpat mat or parchment paper. Add 2T of the filling to the wrapper, paint the edges with the egg and roll.

See the instructions on the wrapper package on how to make the apple roll.

Bake the rolls for 20 minutes and remove from the oven.

Brush with the reduced fat butter and dust with the cinnamon sugar and return to the oven for five more minutes.
