tsp, (pinch)

Pistachios

24 g, coarsely chopped, (2 tbs)

99% fat-free plain yoghurt

  2. Combine juice, sugar and nutmeg in a medium jug and pour over apple slices. Bake, basting with juices every 5 minutes, for 20 minutes or until tender.
  3. Transfer apples and syrup to a serving dish. Sprinkle with nuts and dust with cinnamon. Serve with yogurt.

Notes

The apples in this dessert have not been peeled or cored. Leave the skin on for the extra fibre it provides but core them if you wish.
