A little low sugar dessert serves to keep us on the right path. No one can live a lifetime without an occasional small dish of sweet, so lets temper what we choose. Eat a dessert after your protein meal so it is self limiting and anchored by protein.
Crisps are bariatric friendly and super delicious. I generally use berries since they are lowest in natural sugar and carbs but the store had Champagne Mangos that were perfectly ripe, so we had Mango Crisp.
Fresh Fruit Crisp - no sugar, just the fruit
- 3 cups diced fruit - I use mangos, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, or even strawberry rhubarb
- ¼ cup oatmeal
- 3 tablespoons butter
- ½ cup nuts - I use either pecans, walnuts or both
- 2 tablespoons Truvia sugar replacer or twice as much Splenda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- Place cubed fruit in your baking dishes. Combine oatmeal, butter, nuts, sweetener, salt and cinnamon in the food processor until texture of damp sand. Place spoonfuls of the oatmeal mixture on top of fruit and bake until browned and bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes.
