Quest Bar Apple Dumplings

When I went to visit Pennsylvania, I was told by my family that I HAD to try the apple dumplings. I love to eat foods that are unique to the area I am visiting so I was on board to try one of these famous apple dumplings. I LOVED it! Here is my healthy version of an apple dumpling. Regardless if you've tried this dessert or not, you'll be pleasantly surprised by this healthy version. It is soft and fluffy on the outside and warm and gooey on the inside with a little added texture from the apples. Enjoy!


2 large eggs
3 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
6 Tbsp. granulated stevia
½ tsp. baking powder
½ apple (half of it diced and half sliced)


1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray.

2.  Add eggs to a mixing bowl and whisk until it until it turns foamy. Add in coconut oil and extract. Whisk together.

3.  Add protein powder, almond meal flour, pastry flour, stevia, baking powder, cinnamon, and diced apples to the bowl. Stir until well combined. Place batter in the fridge for 30 minutes. Cut the quest bar into 8 equal pieces and cut 8 apples slices similar in size to the quest bar pieces. Place 1 apple slice on top of each quest bar piece.

4.  Wet your hands slightly, take 3 Tbsp. of batter, and wrap around 1 quest bar piece and apple slice. Make 8 total and place on greased baking pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

Nicolette's Tips

* You may substitute whole wheat pastry flour with oat flour or whole wheat flour.
* I personally added a little bit more of the apple in the center of the dumpling. If you can fit more apple in there, I recommend doing this too :)
