I love a good apple dessert! This apple crisp is one of them…and it’s only 2 points per serving.
I posted a strawberry crisp recipe a while back, which is what gave me the idea to make an apple crisp.
It’s an easy dessert to make and it tastes great.
Since it’s only 2 points per serving you can add some vanilla ice cream and it’s still a low point dessert. Or you can add fat-free Reddi Wip, which is 0 points.
To lower the points of the apple crisp (and the strawberry crisp) I reduced the amount of butter in the topping.
I only used 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter. It was still enough to help get the oatmeal crispy.
Granulated Splenda is what I use as the sweetener. I know some people do not like using Splenda. You can always replace it with sugar, just make sure you adjust the points.
Like most of my recipes, this is easy to make. I started by mixing together the oatmeal, butter, Splenda and cinnamon. I set that aside and started working on the apple mixture.
I peeled 3 granny smith apples and chopped them up. I added them to a mixing bowl with cinnamon, cornstarch, Splenda and brown sugar.
The brown sugar was limited to 1 tablespoon to keep the recipe low in points.
I added the apple mixture to the bottom of a 9×9 baking dish. Then I spread the oatmeal mixture over it.
The apple crisp bakes for 30 minutes, or until the oatmeal is golden brown. I like to eat it right away while it is still warm.
With the holidays coming up this is a great dessert to take to parties!
