If you had to choose sweet or salty for the rest of your life, what would it be?
For me, if I HAD to choose, it would be sweet. I do love salty, but my taste buds always usually prefer sweet. Seriously, how could you ever live without the sweet, savory taste of Apple Pie or the satisfying bite of a chocolate chip cookie? You just can’t. Trust me, I’ve tried. Do you know how long I can last without having something sweet? Like 17 days. So I praise all of you who can live sugar-free because that’s tough work.
Since I like sweets so much, I have to be careful about not over-indulging. If I ate something sweet whenever I craved it, I wouldn’t be living the healthiest lifestyle. In light of this of this situation, I created a well-balanced dessert: sautéed maple apples with Greek yogurt.
It’s not the healthiest recipe, but it’s also not the absolute worst, so you can enjoy it without feeling too guilty about it. I wouldn’t suggest eating it every night, but it is a good substitute if you don’t want to be thrown too far off the wagon.
Not only does it taste delicious, it is also incredibly easy to whip up and involves ingredients you can usually find year-round in your cupboards. Whenever I bake or cook with apples, I prefer the amazing Piñata® apple as it is a wonderful apple for culinary applications. It can withstand heat, without losing flavor AND it tastes amazing.
