This recipe is modified from a recipe I found in the Kraft Foods website for healthy eating. You can use other dried fruits in place of the cranberries although I haven't. Also, use nonfat cottage cheese to cut back the calories even more. The applesauce adds the moisture that nonfat cottage cheese needs. I use the recipe as a side for brunch menus. Guests always rave about it.
- Mix the applesauce and cottage cheese.
- Add the cranberries and stir.
- Dust with cinammon sugar to taste.
This wa a great idea! I never thought of combining the two..I used blueberry applesauce and put some fresh blueberries on top...yum!
I have been making this for a while now, but I use raisins instead of dried cranberries. I'll have to try it this way instead.... I also usually warm it up in the microwave, at least enough to take off the chill from the fridge. I don't use any sugar, either; just the cinnamon.
This is a great way for me to eat my cottage cheese... a good non-boring dish to get my protein in. And it's super simple. Thanks for posting.
