Apple Crisp and scoop of sanity

Apple Crisp with your health at heart: calories: 131.5; total fat: 3.6 g; sodium: 33.9 mg; carbs: 24.4 g; fiber: 2.6 g; protein: 1.5 g

I made an Apple Crisp a few weeks ago when I bought my first bag of local apples. The recipe came from my well used Good Housekeeping “Great Baking” book.
The crisp was killer.
Later on I realized just how killer. One serving cost me the WW Points total I’d usually spend on an entire meal. While I’m baking, I usually have a pretty good eye for what’s going to cost me too much, but I guess I was blinded by the apples and oatmeal.
After learning about that dietary disaster, I got a vague recollection of a super-light apple crisp that had all the sweetness and cinnamon and crunch and apple flavor, but maintained much more dignity in the nutritional department.
Then this one from Spark People showed up in my inbox and inspired me all over again.
Time for another bag of red, sweet-tart handfuls of goodness.
