On cold winter nights, you just want a warm, comforting dessert. But baking up a whole pie or other type of warm dessert isn’t always effective for weight loss goals. Having large servings in the house can increase temptation and be a downfall to some. That’s where this single serve apple crisp comes in. It’s sweet, but low in Weight Watchers points. It’s warm and comforting, but easy to make. And it’s the perfect amount of sweetness to calm the sweet tooth without increasing cravings.

Three reasons why you need to make this recipe!

Who doesn’t love a freshly baked apple crisp?

Apple crisp is delicious when it’s right out of the oven. That’s one of the best parts about this recipe – you can have it made fresh each night rather than having to reheat a large dish of it. 

You can keep yourself on track with your diet. 

There are no lingering leftovers that will tempt you with this recipe! You won’t even worry about going back for unnecessary second helpings. 

It’s easy to make a few servings if needed. 

If you have a partner or friend who’s joining you for dessert, double the recipe and whip up two servings. It’s that easy!

Different ways to change up this recipe: 

  •  For some added sweetness drizzle vanilla icing on top. To make a simple, zero point icing drizzle, mix a little bit of water with Swerve confectioners sugar. It adds sweetness without adding calories. 
  • If you have the points for it, a dollop of no sugar added vanilla ice cream would be divine on top! 
  • Try this with other fruits like peaches or pears. If you do use a softer fruit, reduce the cooking time to about 15-20 minutes. 
  • Additionally, if you have room for an extra Weight Watchers point or two, you can swap the unsweetened applesauce for a light butter to add more flavor to this dessert. 

Tips and Tricks for Making Single Serve Apple Crisp: 

  • This dish doesn’t freeze well, but that’s okay because you’ll be making it fresh every time! 
  • I do suggest using quick oats, not rolled oats, as it makes a finer crumb for the crisp. But you can place the rolled oats in a blender, if that’s all you have, and give it a quick whir to create quick oats.

    1. I have’nt updated yet but at quick glance I would say 5sp, however if you lower the sugar to 1.5Tbsp it will stay the same (4sp)

    1. Sure, although I don’t know the points on it as I don’t use it, most of the points for this are in the brown sugar (3)

  1. 5 stars
    I made this last night and it was SO GOOD! I only used 1TB of brown sugar so it brought the points down to 3SP. I served with some Halo Top Vanilla Bean ice cream. Tasted delicious!

  2. 5 stars
    Just tried this today and it was so good. Thank you so much for sharing such wonderful recipes. Can’t wait to share this one with all of my WW friends.

  3. Hi, this recipe sounds delicious and I’d love to try a full size one on Tuesday for company. Do you happen to know what the recipe/points would be for a 8×11 pan?

    1. Hi sorry I am not too sure, I only figure it out as a single serve, maybe just do the math on paper, if you times the ingredients by say 5 then make 5 servings to keep the points the same..

  4. Hello again Kate..Iwrote recently about how I Love your 15 salad days… I want to share that I have been using Date Sugar – (real dried ground dates) TWO TBS = ONE Sm Pt.
