Skinny Holiday Dessert: Apple Cinnamon Pecan Angel Food Cake

I love a "skinny" dessert and this is a great one!  This recipe appeared in the most recent Healthy Cooking issue... perfect timing!  My skinny-mini momma's birthday was the other day and I needed a yummy light dessert to celebrate her birthday (I swear she should be in an ad for Weight Watchers - she looks amazing!)  We all loved it.  It's the perfect light addition for a holiday get-together!
Best dishes and yummy dreams!
