    This healthy and high–protein apple tart recipe will give the feeling of warm, buttery flavors of a freshly baked apple pie.

    Apples are rich in vitamins and fiber. A double dose of the signature oatmeal cookie whey can help to keep these tarts high in protein, which makes it ideal for building muscle or losing weight.

    Oats and cinnamon round out the warm flavors in this delicious and healthy apple pie alternative.
