1. Cover dish and bake 20 mins.

NOTE: This is really filling and tastes so much like apple pie it almost feels like cheating! My entire family loves it.

This includes 1 t of your allowed 1 T milk for the day. Also includes your grissini and fruit portion for one meal.

You can also totally omit the topping if you don't want to use a grissini portion.
