Single-Serve “Healthier” Apple Crumble

It’s the holiday and who wants to skip dessert? Certainly not me.

What do I mean by healthier? Yes, I didn’t take the “yummy” out of dessert, but I used whole grains, less fat, and less sugar than a typical crumble recipe! And believe it or not, this Healthier Apple Crumble is still everything dessert should be.

Warm, buttery, and crisp on the outside with a soft, cinnamon sweet apple interior. Whole grain flour, oats, and pecans add a depth of flavor and richness.

You won’t miss that giant cup of sugar and sticks of butter used in most Apple Crumble recipes. My less-guilt, more happy-tummy recipe is certainly sweet tooth approved!

 

 

Makes: 1 single-serve bowl (or to share for two)

The Ingredients

The Topping:

1/4 cup instant oats

1/4 cup whole grain flour

1/4 cup low-fat milk

2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon real vanilla extract

1 heaping tablespoon light brown sugar

1 heaping tablespoon chopped pecans

1/2 teaspoon salt

The Filling:

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled & thinly sliced

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon light brown sugar

1 teaspoon real vanilla extract

 

 

The Steps

In a medium bowl, combine all “topping” ingredients with a fork into a semi-moist crumble.

In another bowl, combine all “filling” ingredients.

Place “filling” in a oven-safe shallow bowl. Evenly disperse “topping” on top of the “filling.” Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve immediately (with a scoop of Vanilla Bean ice cream if you dare)!
