There are times when you want a rich, indulgent dessert and other times when you just want a sweet but healthy treat to finish off the night. This apple strudel recipe is one for the latter situation!
Instead of pastry, this version uses mountain bread – a really thin, light wrap – which means that it’s not only much better for you, but also is much less fiddly to make, win:win! And don’t worry, it still looks and tastes like the real thing (and if you do want to make it a little more indulgent, you can always serve it with some ice cream!).Ingredients (serves 2):
2 green apples, peeled and diced into 2cm pieces
1/4 cup sultanas
1 tbsp walnuts, toasted and roughly chopped
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Extra virgin olive oil spray
2 Mountain Bread wraps (or other very thin wrap)
2 tsp honey
1 tsp icing sugar (optional)
Natural yoghurt or ice cream, to serve
- Preheat oven to 180°C.
- Place apple in a microwave safe bowl, cover with a plate and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Stir through sultanas, walnuts and cinnamon.
- Place one sheet of Mountain Bread on a lined baking tray. Spray lightly with oil, then top with second sheet. Spoon apple mixture lengthwise down centre third and drizzle over honey.
- Wrap the two long sides of the mountain bread over the apple mixture, then gently turn the strudel over so that the folded edge is underneath.
- Spray top with olive oil spray and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Sift over icing sugar, slice into as many pieces as you like and serve with yoghurt or ice cream.
