If you haven’t noticed by now, I have a thing for apples. Two of my most popular recipes, my Ooey Gooey Apples and Zero Point Apple Butter, are apple recipes! This year I wanted to make a new apple dish so I created this delicious Apple Crisp. Ya’ll, it’s SO GOOD. The ingredients are minimal and the recipe is simple to make – it’s perfect to serve any day of the week! My Apple Crisp recipe makes 6 servings at 6 WW SmartPoints on both the Blue and Green WW plans or 230 calories per serving.
One thing I’ve learned about creating apple recipes is that if you use the right apple, you really don’t need to add much sugar, if any at all. Some apples are perfectly sweet on their own! The filling of this apple crisp doesn’t have any added sugar – just apples, cinnamon, lemon juice, corn starch and water. The apples get just enough gooey goodness from the cornstarch and they’re cooked until just tender- I still like them to have a little bite. They’re delicious on their own but the topping is just the icing on the cake.. eeer the crisp!
The crumble is a simple combination of oatmeal, a little brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and melted butter. It goes perfectly with our apples and gets super crunchy while baking! I like to top my crisp with a little vanilla ice cream or whipped topping. And to be honest, I may or may not have eaten the leftovers for breakfast on more than one occasion.
Can’t wait for you to give this recipe a try! My Apple Crisp recipe makes 6 servings at 6 WW SmartPoints on both the Blue and Green WW plan or 230 calories per serving. Enjoy!
