A diet friendly sweet treat that I plan on making this week. This recipe is all about portion control. From TOH Healthy. Each strudel is about 100 calores.

These were very good. I made them for Easter and they turned out very well. It was my first time working with phyllo dough, and I found it to be a little difficult, but the overall result was delicious. The apples were perfectly cooked and I ended up getting 9 strudels from the amount of apples (I used 2 whole ones with only 4 tsp of sugar and no walnuts). Great recipe! Thanks!
- 1 1⁄2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 6 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
- butter-flavored cooking spray
