High Protein Apple Crumble


This is a high protein apple crumble. What that means, is the ingredients inside this crumble provide your body with the protein and amino acids required for repairing and building your muscles. So next time you’re in the gym, rather than heading for the chocolate bar, grab an apple and make yourself something like this recipe.


Warm, sweet-tart apples, rich flavors of brown sugar and butter, and a crispy oatmeal streusel on top make up this Protein Apple Crisp for One. With melty vanilla ice cream, ideal! Did I mention that it’s healthful and has fewer than 200 calories overall? You already know what that implies: no need for restraint! One recipe that I frequently make is this one.


I increased the protein value of the crumble by adding two tablespoons of protein. In this recipe, you may use whatever type of protein you choose, but I chose LIV Body Lean Vegan Protein in Snickerdoodle flavor because it’s a tasty pea protein isolate that doesn’t contain any artificial additives. To boost digestion and gut health, this brand also includes additional probiotics, anti-inflammatory minerals, antioxidants, and digestive enzymes. A whey mix or whey concentrate are additional options (NOT whey isolate). In this recipe, plain protein powder works fantastically, but you can also try it with cinnamon, vanilla, or another complementary flavor. Use two tablespoons of gluten-free oat flour in place of protein powder if you don’t have any.


I substituted a sugar-free brown sugar replacement made from monk fruit for the sweetener. The flavor of brown sugar definitely evokes the nostalgia of an apple crisp! Sukrin Gold, Lakanto Golden, and Swerve Brown Sugar are more choices. If you want to add more calories and sugar, you may also use half as much Truvia or Splenda brown sugar blend.

You can also use baking stevia, granulated erythritol, monk fruit blend, or any other granulated sugar like coconut sugar, though the flavor won’t be quite the same.

If you’re using flour or protein powder without flavor, add three tablespoons of sugar.


For this recipe, I only used rolled gluten-free oats rather than flour. You can use fast oats or ordinary rolled oats. Use 2-3 tablespoons of almond flour in place of the oats if you’re grain-free!

I also used vegan buttery spread, however ordinary unsalted butter or light buttery spread can be used to reduce the fat.

The amount of fat is reduced by substituting some of the butter with unsweetened applesauce, but if you don’t care, just use two tablespoons of butter or buttery spread.

PS: While the lemon juice is optional, it helps bring out the apples’ natural acidity.

High Protein Berry Crumble

You’d never know this simple High Protein Berry Crumble contains a fantastic balance of protein and carbohydrates from how delicious it tastes! It works well as a nutritious, gluten-free breakfast or snack.

Berry crumble with lots of protein!

There have perhaps never been any sweeter words said, I believe.

Although it tastes like a dessert, this crumble is actually quite healthy for you. It’s ideal as a snack, dessert, or for breakfast.

In all honesty, you could eat it for lunch or supper as well. Consider serving some vegetables on the side to complete your meal. It’s worth it because it’s so tasty!

I should also point out that this dish is gluten-free. It’s pretty much the ideal recipe: high in protein, without extra sugar or gluten.

Almost any kind of berry can work with berry crumble, although I typically use raspberries or a combination of berries. Begin by using fresh or frozen berries (you just have to thaw the frozen berries first). Every time I get the hankering for something sweet and delectable, I make this berry crumble since I always have a bag of berries in the freezer.

This dish can end up being your go-to because it only only a few simple steps to put it all together and simple ingredients!

How to make high protein berry crumble

There are only 6 ingredients needed to make this wonderful, nutritious treat.

You can read the detailed instructions below or watch this little video to learn how.

First, preheat the oven to 350°F (180C).

Step 2: Put some Stevia on top of the berries in a small Pyrex oven dish.

The third step is to combine the protein powder, oats, and lemon juice. It’ll be comparatively dry. Almonds should be finely chopped and combined with the crumble.

  1. Scatter the crumble over the berries.

Step 5: Bake the crumble for 15 minutes, then turn the oven to broil and bake it for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until the top is just beginning to turn brown.

Step 6: Remove from the oven and let sit for a while before serving.

And how simple was that? You must try this crumble the next time you’re in the mood for something sweet with the ideal balance of protein and carbohydrates.

Not sugar – protein!

By omitting the sugar and replacing it with protein powder, you can transform this crumble into a healthy treat.

Imaginary, huh? However, protein powder works really well for baking. It can enhance flavor and sweetness (as well as protein, of course) without introducing more sugar or carbohydrates. Win-win!

Protein powders are not all suitable for cooking, though. Because it maintains its consistency and flavor when heated, I like to use Met-rx Vanilla Protein Powder.

Sincerely, not a single person who I’ve served this high-protein crumble with berries to has noticed that it contains protein powder. In fact, not one of them even guessed that the berry crumble wasn’t “normal.”

It has the ideal flavor!

You can omit the protein powder and substitute a little oat flour if you don’t care about the macronutrients. By utilizing vegan protein powder, the dish can easily be made vegan.

If you decide to exclude the protein powder, you can restore the flavor and sweetness by using a small amount of plain vanilla.

Don’t make your crumble too big

Making berry crumble for a sizable crowd? It’s guaranteed to please the crowd, but I do have one suggestion to make sure everything goes perfectly.

I suggest making several little, individual portions of the crumble rather than doubling or tripling the recipe to produce one big crumble. The berries will be overcooked before the crumble’s core is done if you try to make a larger serving. The berries should maintain their firmness and avoid becoming jam.


The crumble topping makes this recipe less storable. The top will grow soggy and lose its crunch if you attempt to store it.

However, since this dish is so simple to prepare, you can easily put it together whenever you’re in the mood.
