"Apple" Crisp

This is my favorite and easiest recipe when I'm in the mood for
an apple crisp.

4 medium zucchini
3 packages of Sugar Free Apple Cider Mix
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbs. splenda
Water

Peel the zukes and cut them in half long-wise and take out the
seeds with a spoon..then chop up the zukes..like you would apple chunks. In a medium saucepan, empty the 3 packages of mix
and add about 1 cup of water to mix..add splenda and cinnamon
and then the zukes. Put enough water to just cover the
zukes and then cook over medium heat for 45 minutes until
the liquid is almost gone...but there is still some in the bottom
of the pan.

Pour zukes into sprayed small casserole dish.

Topping: 1/2 cup flax seed meal
2 Tbs. butter
1/4 cinnamon
1/4 cup walnuts
Splenda to taste

Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes until bubbly and topping is browned.

Kevin..It's called Alpine..and there is another brand, too..You can find it by the
Hot Chocolate Mixes..Our Super Wallie carries it. I think there is asparatame in it, though..but it really makes anything taste like an apple..LOLOL..

I also use very strong Celestial Seasonings Apple Cinnamon Spice tea to flavor things. You can brew it very strong in a small amount of water for a really good flavor.

Carolyn this looks awesome!! I use zucchini a lot and this looks so yummy. Apples don't agree with me either - perfect substitute.

SSin-Deb:

I use 4 tea bags to 3/4 cup water. It is very concentrated and not at all sweet.

Thanks NotoSugar ~ I'd like to know the same as Carolyn too. I always have the CS tea bags on hand and would love to try Carolyn's suggestion of using cukes - and your tea ~ thanks again. *▄*

Carolyn...thanks for this recipe. I recently got a recipe for the "zucchini" Apple Crisp (high carb style) while on a visit home. It has a bottom and top crust and really did taste like an apple dish.

I'll be excited to try your low carb version. I've got about 8 Ziploc bags full of peeled, seeded, chopped zucchini in the freezer.

Just going off the high carb recipe....I think about 4 cups of the frozen zucchini would be about right for an 8 x 8 pan of the low carb crisp.

What do you think Carolyn?

I add just Splenda as they have a strong cinnamon taste on their own.

Thanks for the pic lol! I looked for it yesterday at a grocery store and it wasn't there. I am going to try a different one tonight.

For some reason I do not see zucchini anywhere! I only see green squash. Is that OK to use in place?

Has anyone made this recipe using the CS apple cinnamon spice tea bags to flavor it instead of the Alpine apple cider mix?
