What kind of apples should I use to make this Easy Low Point Apple Crisp?

For this recipe I like using Granny Smith Apples. Granny Smith apples stay nice and firm while cooking. These apples are firm and will keep their shape – even as they completely soften. However,  you could also use Honeycrisp or Braeburn apples which are both equally great for cooking. 

How do I make this Easy Apple Crisp?

You will start by coring, peeling, and slicing the apples into bite size pieces. I use THIS apple core from Amazon for coring my apples. 

Then place cored, peeled, diced apples in a large bowl and toss with lemon juice.

In a medium mixing bowl combine, 1/2 cup flour, oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar substitute, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and salt.

Whisk until well combined.

Cut in 3 Tbsp of light butter into flour/oat mixture with pastry blender or fork until mixture forms into small crumbles. 

Refrigerate for 10 minutes. 

 

Add water, sugar substitute, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg into a medium saucepan.

Whisk to combine then bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir often.

Once it starts to boil, let it boil for a full two minutes-this will thicken the sauce.

Pour sauce into the bowl with the sliced apples. Stir to evenly coat apples in sauce.

Then place coated apples into prepared baking dish.

Sprinkle crumble topping evenly over apples. 

Bake for 30 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.

Let it cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve warm over light ice cream and drizzled with sugar free caramel sauce, if desired.

Notes:

  • In order to calculate the smart points on a recipe you have to enter the ingredients in manually (by ingredient) not by the nutritional information in the ww recipe builder-since this recipe contains zero point items the app doesn’t realize there is zero point items in the recipe and will calculate it based only off the nutritional info which is not accurate.
  • The Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar. If you use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the equivalent to real sugar that is recommended on back of the sugar substitute package.

The ingredient list does not say how much cornstarch to use! I'm in the middle of making it and don't know what I should do! :(

Hi Sara

It looks like that measurement was missing from the printed recipe but it is listed on the recipe post- it's 2 Tbsp. I have now updated that for the printable recipe.

Hope that helps- thanks for catching that!

Can you use unsweetened applesauce in place of the butter? If so how much? This sounds great and I'm eager to make it!

Hi Susan

For this particular recipe I do not recommend using unsweetened applesauce as a replacement for light butter. The light butter helps brown the oats..and makes them crispy.

Thanks!

Can you use Splenda brown sugar instead of Lakanto Monkfruit Golden Sweetener?

Hi Jeannine

Yes, you can! The Splenda does contain points so they point value may differ with that substitute.

Thank so much!
