I saw this recipe for Baked Apple Pie Egg Rolls and just couldn’t wait to make them myself! The recipe just sounded so unique and different. Plus I had never used egg roll wrappers before, so I was excited to use them for the first time.
They turned out SO yummy and were a great little treat for all. C renamed them “jelly rolls”. Once baked, the apples become so soft and the filling all melds together into a creamy, decadent, mixture. I think his new name was quite accurate! It’s a fun twist on apple pie, and one that is easier to accurately calculate carbs on versus slicing into a big pie. I was hoping to send one in C’s lunch on Monday, but they didn’t make it to Monday. A testament to just how much we liked them!
In the original recipe, she serves these with a sweetened whipped cream, which looked absolutely delicious, but to keep carb totals down I skipped it.
Try these for yourself! Trust me, your kids will LOVE them!

- 2 apples 1 granny smith and 1 gala (about 2 heaping cups worth)
- 1 large lemon juiced
- 2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons Truvia Baking Blend OR 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon all spice
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 14 egg roll wrappers
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
- Peel and chop up apples. Add to a medium bowl. Add remaining filling ingredients to bowl and stir together until well combined. Allow mixture to sit for about 10 minutes.
- Lay 1 egg roll wrapper onto a clean surface and brush edge with a 1 inch perimeter of egg wash.
- Spread 1-2 tablespoons of the filling across one side of the prepared egg roll wrapper. You do not want to over stuff these.
- Fold the sides over and brush with egg wash. Carefully roll filling tightly in the wrapper and press gently to seal.
- Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and coat with a thin layer of cooking spray. Repeat until all the filling and wrappers have been used.
- Bake egg rolls for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. During the last 5 minutes of cook time, pull out and brush with a little melted butter and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar (I mixed some cinnamon with a little Truvia) on top. Put back in oven for remaining 5 minutes.
