Crustless Apple Pie - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

There are few things more comforting than curling up with a bowl of warm apple pie. With all the butter and sugar you find in traditional recipes, a golden, pastry-wrapped apple pie is often fairly high in calories. We’ve worked some Pinch of Nom magic to bring you those cosy, comforting flavours in a much more slimming-friendly pudding – and that’s how this Crustless Apple Pie was created!

Our silky set custard-style dessert is made using surprisingly simple ingredients – most of which we bet you already have in the kitchen! It takes just 10 minutes to mix everything together, and then you’ll only have to wait half an hour for it to bake in the oven. 

When it’s ready, your delicious, apple-infused pud will be lightly golden and perfectly set. At just 158 calories per serving, you can’t go wrong with a drizzle of slimming-friendly Custard or some low-calorie ice cream on the side. 

What diets is this Crustless Apple Pie suitable for?

Our Crustless Apple Pie can be enjoyed on a vegetarian diet. If you’re cooking for people with allergies, be extra careful when checking ingredients and preparing food!

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Crustless Apple Pie recipe?

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.

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

NEW TIP
Simple low calorie recipe to get that sweet kick
I would use a shallower dish next time as struggled to cook the bottom but the apples were starting to burn on top.
NEW TIP
Great first attempt!
I added frozen raspberries and blackcurrants for extra pops of flavour and sprinkled with additional cinnamon before baking. Next time I will use a wider and shallower dish.

How do you know when Crustless Apple Pie is cooked?

You should cook this Crustless Apple Pie until it has turned golden and is just set. Bear in mind the pie will stay quite moist – you’re looking for a consistency similar to set custard. This will take around 30 minutes in the oven. 

Here in the UK, the standard advice is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and maintained that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep you and your family safe! 

How long can you keep Crustless Apple Pie in the fridge?

Once you’ve served this recipe, you’ll ideally need to eat it within 4 hours.

You can store any leftover Crustless Apple Pie in the fridge for around 3 days. Make sure that you allow any leftover portions to cool completely, before putting them in a container with a lid and chilling in the refrigerator. 

Can I freeze Crustless Apple Pie?

No, this recipe is not suitable for freezing. 

How do I reheat Crustless Apple Pie?

If you have stored some leftovers in the fridge, these can be reheated before serving. Either place them in a microwave safe container and heat in the microwave until piping hot, or reheat in a moderate oven.

Hi, i have noticed that some puddings and certain cakes can also be cooked in a slow cooker. Do you think its possible with this, and do you have a slow cooker conversion guide for temp/hours? Thanks.

    SharonFriday 11th November 2022

    Hi Lynne, we haven’t tried cooking our Crustless Apple Pie in a slow cooker so can’t guarantee good results. If you’d like to try it we’d suggest the following:
    Use an ovenproof dish that will fit comfortably inside your slow cooker and stand it on a trivet/crumpled foil/ upturned ramekin dishes to raise it off the bottom of the slow cooker pot.
    Pour warm water into the slow cooker pot to come halfway up the side of the oven proof dish. Cooking slowly in a water bath will reduce the chances of the filling curdling.
    Cover the dish tightly with foil.
    We’d suggest cooking gently on the low setting.
    You could pop the cooked pie under a moderate grill for a couple of minutes until lightly golden.
    We have a handy article here with a conversion guide for slow cooking which you may find useful: How to Convert Recipes to a Slow Cooker
    Do hope this helps!

Can the Crustless Apple Pie be cooked in the Airfryer and if it can at what temperature and for how long?
Thanks

      Hi Zarine, we’re glad to hear our Crustless Apple Pie worked so well in your air fryer! Thanks for helping out and sharing this with us.

Hi thanks for the recipe. It looks fabulous. Does the granulated sweetener mean granulated sugar? I don’t like artificial sweeteners. I can’t wait for your next cookbook!

Reply

    HollyWednesday 9th November 2022

    Hey Nina, we use granulated sweetener that is like for like in texture and weight as sugar so it can be easily swapped if you would prefer to use sugar, hope that helps!

    Reply

      NinaMonday 21st November 2022

      Thanks for replying, very much appreciated. Just to clarify… therefore, I use exactly the same weight of caster sugar or light brown sugar as granulated sweetener? I am assuming that weight for weight with sugar will work in all your other recipes? Just want to make sure before I start substituting the sugar and baking. Big thanks

      HollyMonday 21st November 2022

      Hey Nina, we always use granulated sweetener that has the same texture and weight as sugar so not the powdery kind. So swapping for sugar in any of our recipes will work the same you will just need to alter the calories accordingly. We have an article HERE which you may find helpful!

Simone KellyTuesday 8th November 2022

Hi do you think this would work with pears?

    Hey Simone, we haven’t tested this recipe using pears but it should work great! Hope that helps!
