I have been eating a lot of apple crisps lately and have tweaked my recipe to suit my taste. I have reduced the amount of butter and now am reducing the amount of sugar so that I could eat more apple crisp with less guilt. Hey, the apple, lemon, whole wheat flour, oat meal are all good for me. I only substituted the Stevia for the sugar in the apples, not the topping because I want to make sure the topping gets brown.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel apples (I leave half of the apples unpeeled to get the nutritional benefits of the some of the skin). Slice into 1/4" slices.
  3. Combine apple slices, Stevia powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and flour. Toss to coat. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the apples and toss to coat.
  4. Put apples into baking dish - I use a large 13" oval ceramic casserole dish.
  5. In bowl combine flour, oat meal, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg from topping ingredients. Mix well. Cut in soften butter. I use my hand to make sure to incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients. You should get small crumbs.
  6. Put topping over apples to cover. There should be plenty to adequately cover the apples.
  7. Bake 40 - 50 minutes until apples are cooked (bubbly).
  8. Cool and serve.
  9. My kids like to top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

This was a nice way to use less sugar in a dessert for my husband. I made it exactly as called for except my oven into my Farberware crock pot (this is a true SLOW cooker) it went, and came out PERFECT. My apples were pink ladies. Thanks so much!

This is just what I was looking for -- to substitute out most sugar with Stevia, but still keep the taste and texture. Thank you for sharing this!
