Description from Hungry Girl "Attention, Fiber One skeptics! We DARE you to try this recipe and not love it. Okay, if you're absolutely opposed to using F1 for baking, leave it out and double the graham cracker amount instead (each serving will then have 141 calories, 1g fat, 2.25g fiber and a POINTS® value of 2*). BTW, try spooning some of this stuff on top of light vanilla ice cream or yogurt... IT ROCKS!!!

- 3 cups apples, peeled and cut into chunks (any sweet, not tart, variety)
- 1⁄2 cup Fiber One cereal (original variety)
- 8 low-fat honey graham crackers (2 sheets=8 crackers)
- 2 tablespoons fat free egg substitute
- 2 tablespoons no-sugar-added applesauce
- 3 tablespoons Splenda granular, divided
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar (not packed)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Combine 2/3 cup of cold water with brown sugar, cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon, vanilla extract, salt, and 1 tablespoons of the Splenda. Stir well.
- In a medium-sized pot, combine apple chunks with this mixture and heat the apple mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
- Once liquid thickens to a syrupy consistency and begins to bubble, reduce heat to low and cover. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes, and then transfer mixture to a medium-sized round baking dish. Set aside.
- Next, break graham crackers into small pieces. Place graham pieces and Fiber One in a blender or food processor, and grind to a breadcrumb-like consistency.
- Transfer crumbs to a microwave-safe dish, and add egg substitute, applesauce, 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon, and the remaining 2 tablespoons of Splenda. Stir well. Microwave graham mixture for 1 minute.
- Use a fork to break up the toughened mixture as much as possible, and then allow it to cool for a few minutes.
- Transfer graham mixture to a food processor or blender, and pulse until crumbly and uniform.
- Evenly distribute graham topping over apple mixture.
- Place the dish in the oven, and bake for 10 minutes.
- Allow cobbler to cool slightly before serving.
I made this from the book, and the topping wasn't as crispy as I'd hoped, however I used All-Bran since I couldn't find Fiber One original cereal. But overall, this was REALLY good. An indulgence rarely allowed when on a diet!
Made this tonight instead of apple pie. Didn't care too much for the crust - I followed someone's suggestion and used 1 cup Fiber One and 4 graham crackers. Next time I'll follow the recipe for the crust. The filling was fantastic, although the apples were still crunchy. Next time I'll cook them longer on the stove. If my next attempt is better, I'll update this comment and rating.
Yum! Perfect healthy dessert, served it with Breyers Fat Free Vanilla - equally as satisfying as the full fat versions.
