Apple crisp!!!

One of my favorite bloggers and fellow Spartan asked for here is the amazing apple crisp. It is from the Weight Watcher Magazine, and I did use splenda sugar and brown sugar.

1/2c. + 2 tbsp. all purpose flour
1/2 c. quick cooking or old fashioned oats (not instant)
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground ginger (I didn't use this)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon (I used 1/2 tsp one 1/4 in the mixture, and 1/4 in the topping)
3 Tbsp of light stick butter diced (and I let soften a bit)
1 tsp. water
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
3 lb apples ( I used Granny smith, the recipe says Golden Delicious or Jonathan. Peel and thinly slice the apples
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1. preheat the oven to 375 F. Spray a shallow 1 1/2-qt baking dish with nonstick spray.

2. To make the topping, combine the 1/2c. flour, the oats, brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl. With a pastry blender or 2 knives used scissor-fashion cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 1 tsp. water and firmly press the misture to form clumps.

3 To make the filling, mix the granulated sugar and the 2 Tbsp. flour, nutmeg, in a large bowl. Add the apples and vanilla: mix well. Tranfer to the baking dish. Sprinkle the topping over the filling. Bake until the filling is bubbling and the topping is golden, 55-60 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I added light whip topping to mine instead of icecream. I also doubled the topping to give it more crisp!

But as is, it serves 8. 189 cal, 3 G fat, 1 G Sat fat, 0 G trans Fat, 5 MG CHOL, 64 MG Sod, 41 G Carb, 3 G fiber, 2 G Protien, 18 MG calcium. Points Value: 3.

We used the entire pan to serve 7, with very large portions.

I'm just curious: how many calories if I somehow ate the entire pan? ;)
