½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon Stevia Extract Powder
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons rolled oats, lightly chopped in a blender.
6 tablespoons vegetable oil

In a bowl mix together flour, stevia, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and oats. Stir in oil, walnuts, and coconut meal. Spoon over apple mixture. Bake at 350 degrees in a preheated oven for 50 minutes or until apples are tender, To prevent over-browning, loosely cover with aluminum foil the last 15 minutes.

Serve warm or chilled. For special events top with Lemon Ice Cream.

Variation: Substitute whole wheat pastry flour for barley flour.

NOW FOODS® STEVIA PRODUCTS

Parts used and where grown: The stevia plant originally came from the rain forests of Brazil and Paraguay. It is now grown in those areas, as well as in Japan, Korea, Thailand, and China. It is most widely used as a non-sugar sweetener in food and drink, particularly because it does not appear to have any calories or affect on blood sugar like most natural sweeteners (like sugar or honey).
