artificial sweetener, to taste
1 egg yolk
4 tablespoons muesli cereal
25 g (1 oz) low-fat spread

method

1. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of the gelatine in the water in a bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water.

6. Spread the apple puree over the muesli base; arrange the apple slices on top. Spoon over the apple juice glaze and chill for 4 hours.
