These ingredients aren’t the best option when trying to slim down, so we thought we’d try to make our own version using a Weight Watchers Wrap!

What do I need to make these Apple Strudels?

Apart from the slimming store cupboard staples of eggs, a bit of sweetener and low calorie cooking spray, you will also need a Weight Watchers Wrap, some mincemeat and a cooking apple.

As you will probably know, there are a few different brands that offer low calorie tortilla wraps, but we’ve found that the Weight Watchers ones are the best for making things like Cheese and Onion Pasties, Sausage Rolls, and Apple Turnovers.

The recipe for these Apple Strudels only uses 2 teaspoons of sweetener in the apple and a sprinkle on the top of the Strudel.

  • Open out the wrap and fold it in half. When you do this you should be able to see the marks you made earlier.
  • Using a sharp knife make a cut from the line to the edge of the wrap. Measure a fingers width and make another cut at the same angle.

  • Continue cutting, you should get around 7-9 strips, leaving the top and bottom of the wrap uncut.
  • Brush the whole wrap with beaten egg, paying extra attention to the edges. Spoon the apple and mincemeat along the middle of the wrap.

  1. Hi I’m just about to make these apple strudels but I’m a bit unsure as to how much cinnamon to use as it does mention it in the recipe. Also, the recipe calls for a pinch of sweetener but when I’ve read how to cook them it says to use a couple of teaspoon of sweetener. Can you clarify please.

    Thanks. 😃

  2. I have just made 2 of these but changed the mincemeat for fresh blackberries in one and used sultanas in the other very tasty

  3. Tried these yesterday and they were amazing forgot to take a photo but I will do some more for my slimming group taster day and hopefully remember to take a pic. Yum yum 👍🏻

  4. These were delicious but the wraps cracked when I did the folding lattice bit – any top tips?
    Thankyou 😊

    1. Sometimes if the wrap is a little dry this can happen. Either heat the tortilla for a few seconds in the microwave to soften them before assembling, or brush some egg on and leave for a minute to soften them up 🙂
