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.

I can't find the land o' lakes light butter made with canola oil right now....do you think the spreadable I Can't Believe It's Not Butter will work? If not I can just wait to make this until I find the correct butter. Thank you :)

I have the pie filling frozen. Do I need to decrease the time if I use thawed pie filling that is already cooked?

Hi Tena

No, you'll still want to cook it for the same amount of time.

Thanks

The recipe uses lakanto golden rather than brown, what is the difference? Thanks!

Hi Tiffany

The Lakanto Golden Monkfruit sweetener is a zero point brown sugar sweetener! That has zero calories and points vs brown sugar. If you choose to use regular brown sugar the points may vary.

Hope that helps!
