Low Sugar Apple Crumble

Here is a recipe for a healthier version of apple crumble. I have used a mixture of Bramley cooking apples and golden delicious to add some natural sweetness without the addition of excessive sugar. The crumble topping is low sugar and I have used ground almonds to increase the sweetness naturally. The added bonus is that it lowers the overall carb levels of this pudding and makes it much healthier.

Serves 4



1 Bramley apples

3 eating apples (I used golden delicious)

2tbsp water

1tbsp Stevia (Or other sweetener of choice)

1tsp Honey

1tsp ground ginger

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1tsp nutmeg

Crumble Topping:

20g porridge oats

80g Plain flour

80g Ground almonds

40g butter (cold and chopped into 1cm cubes)

1tbsp Stevia (Or other sweetener of choice)


1) Pre heat your oven to gas mark 5 (190 oC)

2) Peel and core all the apples and chop them into small cubes.

3) Put them into a medium-sized pan along with all the other filling ingredients and heat them over a low heat until the apple pieces are softened. Stir regularly.

4) In a large mixing bowl add in all of the dry crumble topping ingredients and mix them together. Add in the butter then using the tips of your fingers rub the butter into the dry ingredients until it all resembles bread crumbs.

5) Place the filling into a large oven safe dish and then top it with the crumble mix pressing down lightly.

6) Put on the middle shelf in the oven and cook for around 20 minutes or until the top is brown. Check often so that it doesn’t burn.

7) Take out of the oven and allow it to cool for 5 mins. Serve with either cream, ice-cream or custard.

8) Left overs can be cling filmed refrigerated for 48 hours when it has cooled. The crumble can also be frozen for up to a month so as a time saver its a good idea to double up the ingredients and make two, one for now and one for an easy desert later.
