Please make sure to double or triple check all of your ingredients if you’re cooking for people with allergies.

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Vegan Blackberry and 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 Vegan Blackberry and Apple Crumble?

You’ll need a few special ingredients to prepare this recipe for vegan diets. Instead of standard flour and oats, we’ve used gluten-free alternatives – you’ll find them in the Free From section in supermarkets.

Make sure you use a non-dairy reduced fat spread like Flora Light. Some ‘plant-based’ brands can add dairy to their products, so be sure to check the label (especially if you’re cooking for anyone with allergies)!

For aerosol cream, we’d recommend Food Heaven Heavenly Whipped Cream as it’s completely vegan and available in the chilled aisle at most supermarkets.
