This low-fat Thanksgiving dessert from cooking instructor Katherine Lawrence is the perfect way to wrap-up a rich, satisfying holiday dinner.

What You Need:

½ cup pecans
1 apple, ¼-inch diced
1/3 cup maple syrup

1½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup agave
1 tablespoon vanilla

 What You Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small casserole dish or 9-inch cake pan, spread a single layer of pecans and layer apples on top. Drizzle with maple syrup and non-dairy milk.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt until evenly mixed. Add applesauce, agave, and vanilla to flour mixture and stir well until combined. Gently pour batter over apples and pecans, and spread evenly.
