Low Sugar Apple Crisp for Two!

Here's the Dish

This past weekend my sisters and I took our annual trip to the cider mill! Every year we get caramel apples, fresh donuts, and we always pick our own apples straight off the tree, which I love! We leave with tons of apples, so I decided to put them to good use in what else but a quick and easy apple crisp recipe! The combination of the warm apples, sweet-crumbly topping, and cool whip come together to make the ultimate comfort food~without all of the extra sugar and calories, of course!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 35-40 Minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray two individual ramekins with cooking spray (or a small baking dish or pie pan).
In a medium bowl, mix together the apples with the syrup, stevia, and spices.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together the topping ingredients until crumbly.


Place apples in baking dish(s) and sprinkle the crumble over apples. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown.  Serve warm with low fat whipped cream if desired!


2 Medium apples of choice, cut into small cubes, (peeled if desired)
5 pkts or 1/4 tsp Stevia or 2 tbs sweetener of choice
1 tbs Low sugar maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Pumpkin pie or apple pie spice
1/2 cupOld fashioned oats (gluten free if sensitive)
1/4 cupOat flour (oats ground in blender or food processor)
1/2 tspCinnamon
1/8 tsp Salt
1/4 cupPacked brown sugar or sucanat 1
2 tbsCold butter (I used Light Smart Balance)

1 (I used naturally sweetened low sugar version, Ideal™ brown sugar)

I wonder if I could somehow tweak this recipe to make a cherry cobbler? I have been searching for a healthy version and have not been able to find one. These look amazing – I can’t wait to try them!!!

I just made a version of this and it is really delicious! But I am pretty sure the nutrition info is off. For the topping alone, 1/2 cup oats (150 calories) + 1/4 cup oat flour (90 calories) + 2 TBS butter (100 calories) + 1/4 cup brown sugar (209)…that alone equals 500 calories, divided by two servings is 250 calories alone. That obviously doesn’t even include the apples, which could add another hundred calories per serving…. Am I doing something wrong? I am sorry, I don’t mean to be critical! I just am very cautious about the amount of calories I consume! Thanks!
