Apple crumble with sweetener is a favorite around these parts. Apple crumble is one of my favorite desserts to make. I love the sweet yet tart flavor that you get from a mixture of apples and cinnamon. There is something about the apple crumble recipe I’ve been making for years that keeps people coming back for more. If you haven’t ever tried it, you should probably go ahead and do it soon.
Sugar Free Apple Crumble Recipe
As my husband is diabetic, I am always trying to find nice low sugar desserts that he can have. So today I made it my mission to come up with a decent sugar free apple crumble recipe! Well I say sugar free, but I suppose it should really say it has no sugar added to it as the apple does contain natural sugars. But either was, it’s still much better for diabetics
I was worried that it may end up tasting chemically if I used artificial sweeteners, but I used Canderel Sugarly, which has the same granulated texture as sugar and it was pretty damn good even if I do say so myself! In fact my son went back for seconds without even realising that it was sugar free so I’m going to assume he liked it!
½ cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 ¼ cup old-fashioned oats

- In a bowl, combine butter, oats, flour, and Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. Use your hands to work the butter into the dry ingredients to form a clumpy mixture with no loose flour.
