Cooking Notes

  • Vanilla syrup is not the same as Vanilla extract.
  • Packaged granola often contains sugar, dairy, and flour.

Recipe Intent versus reality

Initially, my intent is to create a no sugar vegan dessert. However, a close inspection of the ingredient labels often reveals several violations. For instance, the granola may contain chocolate with a milk component. Likewise, the vanilla syrup may contain refined sugar. By all means, I did not set out to fool you. Rather, I want to give you a simple healthy recipe that does require a lot of work and still delivers a great tasting dessert.

    Thanks for the cool recipe. I brought this over to my Aunt’s house for Thanksgiving and now everyone thinks I am a great cook. LOL.

      Glad it was a hit Derrick. My family loves this apple dish and compliment me all the time. While I like the praise, I am kinda embarrassed that it is so simple to make.
