Toffee Apple Pies - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

When you think of Toffee Apple Pies, you may be imagining typical pies filled with sugar and buttery pastry. Instead, we’ve used some clever swaps for these typically high calorie foods for an indulgent dessert that’s slimming friendly without compromising on calories!

You still get a delicious crunchy top, but it’s made from scrunched up filo pastry which is lower in calories but still provides texture and makes this dish feel much more indulgent. We’ve also used 50% less sugar caramel dessert topping inside and drizzled on these Toffee Apple Pies, as it adds the sweetness and toffee that make these pies irresistible!

Filo pastry is a great alternative to shortcrust as it’s lower in calories and points, and a little goes a long way. We love using it because it crisps up wonderfully and is an ideal choice for sweet and savoury dishes alike. This means these Toffee Apple Pies are ideal if you’re following a low calorie, slimming or Weight Watchers diet.

If you’d like, you could also try these Toffee Apple Pies with a dollop of creamy Greek yoghurt, sweetened quark or even our Custard for a warming sweet treat, perfect for a chilly evening.

What diets are these Toffee Apple Pies suitable for?

This Toffee Apple Pies recipe is suitable for vegetarians. It can be made gluten free if you substitute the filo pastry for a gluten free version, but this isn’t widely available.

You’ll need four ovenproof ramekin dishes for this recipe, and they can be used again and again in lots of our other recipes! We like these classic white ones.

A sharp knife is vital when cutting filo pastry, to make sure it doesn’t bunch up or split. We like this one, and a good knife should be sharpened regularly.

How do you know when these Toffee Apple Pies are cooked?

You should cook these Toffee Apple Pies until the pastry is golden. This will take around 15 minutes in the oven.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.

How long can you keep Toffee Apple Pies in the fridge?

We recommend baking them just before serving for that crispy, caramel top. They won’t stay as crunchy and firm if you leave them overnight.

Can I freeze Toffee Apple Pies?

We wouldn’t recommend freezing this recipe due to the filo pastry not freezing well – it’s so tasty that you might not have any leftovers anyway!
