This recipe is absolutely decadent tasting, yet it is low in fat, low in carbohydrates and full of nutrients. A tasty treat to enjoy any time and the kids will love it.


  • 6 organic apples (any type)
  • 2 organic oranges
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp organic yoghurt (use coconut, milk, soy, or other)
  • 1/2 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 6 tspn grated pecans
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Peel the skin and most of the pith (white part) from the oranges and slice 1cm thick.
  2. Arrange half the orange slices on the bottom of a baking dish.
  3. Mix the ground cinnamon with the brown sugar and add about half of it to the oranges.
  4. Peel the skin from the apples and set aside in cold water to prevent browning of the skin (from oxidisation).
  5. Add the apples to the baking tray, on top of the oranges.
  6. Add the rest of the orange slices on top of the oranges (add any extra slices to the bottom of the tray).
  7. Sprinkle the rest of the sugar over the apples and the oranges.
  8. Measure out 1/2 cup of the water that the apples were in and pour it over everything in the baking dish.
  9. Cook at low-medium heat 150°C for about 20-25 minutes (or until the apples are soft and there is a glaze on the oranges).
  10. Serve warm with some yoghurt, sprinkle some raspberries over the yoghurt and sprinkle some grated pecan nuts over the top.

A healthy, delicious, yet decadent-looking dessert that is low in sugar, low in fat and high in fibre. Less sugar can be used, so adjust it to taste.
