As you may have noticed, I really like apple desserts. I’m constantly looking for new recipes to make healthier. As I was cleaning my kitchen the other day, I found this booklet of really delicious but really unhealthy recipes my mom had given me a few years ago. I decided to healthify the apple crumble and took the recipe from a whopping 600+ calories per serving to a more reasonable 142.
Healthy Apple Crumble
1/3 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
5 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons apple pie spice (you can substitute cinnamon)
2 pounds tart apples (I used Granny Smith), peeled, cored, and sliced
Preheat your oven to 425° and lightly mist a 13x9 baking pan or 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the topping.
Arrange the sliced apples across the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle with the sugar and apple pie spice. Pour the topping evenly over the apples.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the apples have slightly softened and the topping is golden brown.
