Healthy BUT SO GOOD Apple Wontons

I've been trying out the air fryer option in my new oven and one of the first things I made were these healthy, but oh so good, Apple Won Tons.

These vegan won ton wraps were talked about on the Weight Watchers chat board so I thought I'd give them a try.

I peeled and chopped up about 5 apples (I could have done just three as this made a lot extra but I used extra to put on yogurt for breakfast so all good!)  I put the apples into a pan with about 1/4 c of monk fruit (sweetener substitute) which has ZERO aftertaste.  It's all I use now - it tastes and bakes just like regular sugar without that nasty, bitter, aftertaste.  You can find different brands on Amazon but I prefer Lakanto and can often find that in my local grocery store. You can also purchase directly from their website.  (Note: Not ALL of the Lakanto products taste good - stick to the sweeteners and the drinking chocolate and avoid the baking mixes!)

After simmering for about 20 minutes, the apples and monk fruit make their own, sweet caramelized apple mixture.

About a tablespoon goes into the won ton wrapper.  Wet the four edges with your finger dipped in water, fold over into a triangle and place on a parchment covered baking sheet.
I air fried mine for about 8 minutes, flipping halfway through.  You could also just bake these in the oven and flip half way.

Terrible, fuzzy picture but I must have been in a hurry to eat them haha!  I would have dusted with powdered sugar but didn't have any!

Proof that a healthy dessert doesn't have to taste healthy!



  1. Those definitely look tasty. I've never tried Monk Fruit, but I think I need to learn more about it now. ;^)

  2. I've only had the savory (meat) won tons, but the apple dessert versions are right up my alley!

  3. mmmm - I'd definitely try those! I've never been a fan of artificial sweeteners due to the aftertaste so if I have to go that route I'll certainly try your suggestion.

  4. OH yummy! It's all about the taste.

  5. These sound yummy! I might have to look into that sweetener substitute you mentioned. My mom is allergic to stevia (and I hate the aftertaste of it like you mentioned), so maybe that would be an option for her, and myself too.

    Thank you for your comment on my blog! I wanted to mention that I am working on putting together a short post about how I use grass clippings on my garden to keep down the weeds, as you had asked about it in your comment. Hopefully I'll have that ready in a day or two. : )

  6. I tried leaving you a comment a few days ago, but am not sure if it came through. I have had some trouble commenting when I do it on my phone!

    I wanted to let you know that I made a quick post answering your question on how I use grass clippings as a mulch in my garden, since you had asked about it in the last comment you left me. I hope it helps! :)

    In the other comment I tried leaving I was also saying that these apple wontons you made sound good! (If it did come through, and this is a double, I apologize about that!) I had never heard of monk fruit as a sweetener substitute. Sounds like something worth looking into! Thank you for sharing!

    1. It didn't come through and your email has you as a no-reply blogger. I've been having issues too but I got your comments now and DID just see the grass clipping post! Thank you!

  7. These sound fabulous, Lauren, and thank you for the recommendation on the sweetener that you prefer. I will look for that.
    I always was getting your posts emailed, but didn’t for this or your more recent one.
