A Healthy Treat Recipe from UFC GYM

Kat Barefield

Nature’s candy not only satisfies your sweet tooth, it nourishes your body. After working so hard at UFC GYM, we agree that you should treat yourself, but it doesn't have to be in an unhealthy way. Using fruit as dessert is a great way to model a healthy lifestyle for your family and friends. This apple dumpling recipe is a winner for my family.

Ingredients for 1 serving:

  • 1 large Golden Delicious or Gala apple

  • ½ - 1 ounce of granola

  • 2 tablespoons Light whipped cream

  • Cinnamon to taste

Nutrient Totals

  • 180-250 calories (depending on amount of granola)

  • 1-3 g protein

  • 34-42 g carbs

  • 5-9 g fat

  • 5-6 g fiber


Remove the core of the apple. Pack the cored apple with granola. Place cored apple in a vegetable steamer or shallow saucepan with 1/2 inch water.  Cover and steam for 10 minutes or until tender. Cool. Sprinkle with cinnamon and top with light whipped cream. Enjoy!

Don’t forget to end every meal with your dotFIT Multivitamin and Mineral to fill nutrient gaps. You started with a multivitamin in your mother’s womb to ensure you got everything you needed for healthy development. We believe this lifelong habit helps you and your family grow strong and stay strong.
