I created this post as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars and SPLENDA® Brand; all opinions are my own. #SplendaSavvies #SplendaSavvies 

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I wanted to come up with an easy alternative to apple pie.  Don’t get me wrong, I love making pie but it can be so time consuming between making dough, chilling it, baking and waiting.  That’s probably the worst part.  I figured this year I go the French route with an Easy Apple Galette using SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener!

We went to this Brazilian Churrascaria or Brazilian BBQ which left us all in a meat coma.  No, seriously, I fell asleep as soon as I got home.  So good!
