Low Fat Apple Ricotta Pie

Low Fat Apple Ricotta Pie Low Fat Apple Ricotta Pie

This apple ricotta pie turned out delicious. I used homemade granola instead of the cereal, and it is much lower in fat and calories. Still tasted wonderful.















¾ cup grape nuts cereal
or granola
2 large apples
peeled, cored, sliced
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 ½ cups ricotta cheese
cup sugar
1 large egg whites
1 large eggs
1 cup yogurt, plain


Sprinkle the cereal on the bottom of a greased 8 inch springform cake pan.

Arrange the apple slices over the cereal and sprinkle them with the lemon rind, lemon juice and cinnamon.

Combine the ricotta, sugar, egg white and whole egg and yogurt in a medium bowl, mixing with a spoon until smooth. Pour evenly over the apples.

Bake in a preheated 350℉ (180℃). oven for 45 minutes. When cool, go around the circumference of the pan with a knife before removing the side.
