Fried Apple Pie Rolls


In this healthy take on apple pie, egg roll wrappers stand in for pie crust, saving you calories and the headache of rolling out dough. We like to use Granny Smith apples because they hold their shape and provide tart balance to the sweet filling. Try dipping these handheld crispy treats in whipped cream.

8 servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 5 cups diced peeled Granny Smith apples (about 4 medium)

  • 4 tablespoons sugar, divided

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided

  • Pinch of ground nutmeg

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • 8 egg roll wrappers

  • 4 teaspoons coconut oil


  1. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until just starting to brown. Add apples, 3 tablespoons sugar, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Add flour and cook 1 minute more. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.

  2. Place an egg roll wrapper on a clean work surface with one corner facing you. Lightly brush the edges with water. Place about 1/3 cup of the apple filling in the center. Fold both sides of the wrapper over the filling, then fold in the bottom corner and roll up as tightly as possible. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling. Clean and dry the pan.

  3. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a shallow dish and place near the stove. Heat oil in the pan over medium heat until shimmering. Add the rolls and cook, turning frequently, until golden brown on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes total. Dredge the hot rolls in the cinnamon-sugar.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
