Crumble is one of those classic desserts that just screams ‘comfort food’! Super hearty and really comforting, an Apple Crumble has to be one of our absolute favourite puds.
Our slimming friendly take on this tasty treat is just as satisfying and delicious as a ‘normal’ crumble, but without all of those pesky extra calories and Points.
This recipe is super versatile and if you’re not a fan of apples in your crumble, then you can easily swap them out for whichever fruit you’d prefer. Rhubarb, mixed berries or even pear all work really well so feel free to get creative!
If you’re going to use different fruits, then remember to check the nutritional values as these can vary depending on the fruit you choose!

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Apple Crumble?
Weight Watchers’ new PersonalPoints plan calculates each individual’s Points allowance based on their unique food preferences and goals. This means we’re no longer able to offer exact WW points for our recipes.
The good news is that all of our recipes are still Weight Watchers friendly! If you have any questions about your Points budgets or you’re unsure how a certain recipe will fit into your plan, please reach out to Weight Watchers directly.
Do you need any special ingredients to make Apple Crumble?
We prefer to use a natural, granulated sweetener which weighs the same as sugar. They tend to taste a lot better and although they cost a little more, you don’t need as much as with the powdered type of sweetener.
There are various brands to look out for and Sukrin, Candarel Sugarly or Natvia are widely available in supermarkets or online.

You’ll also need some oven proof ramekins to bake these crumbles in. You can generally pick them up from most large supermarkets or online from Amazon.
We use a natural granulated sweetener like Sukrin in this dish which you can easily grab online from Amazon.
Preheat the oven to 160ºC. Cut the apple into small dice and place into the bottom of 4 individual, oven proof ramekins. Sprinkle the cinnamon and half the sweetener over the apples.
In a mixing bowl, add the flour, oats, reduced fat spread and the remaining half the sweetener. Rub between your fingers until it looks like bread crumbs.
Top the apples with the crumble mixture and spray with low calorie cooking spray.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until golden and the apple is soft. Serve whilst hot with your choice of topping or sauce.
