Apple Crisp For One! (E)

I am absolutely loving eating the Trim Healthy Mama way! You get to eat chocolate that is good for you, fresh delicious veggies, and loads of good fats! I am a week and a half into my new found love for this way of eating, on Sunday I found myself feeling slightly sluggish. After a week of feeling energized and fantastic, I was so nervous  could my awesome new food plan be making me feel yucky? NOPE! I just needed to add in more “E” or Energizing meals. These meals are higher in carbohydrates, low in fat, and must include protein.  I diligently made myself a delicious dinner of baked Tilapia, roasted asparagus, and quinoa. It was delectable, but as usual about an hour after dinner I wanted dessert! So I put my creative side to work and looked at Pinterest where I found Joy in the Journey’s sugar free THM friendly version of an apple crisp for a family, it looked delicious unfortunately I am the only one in my house eating this way so her awesome recipe wouldn’t work for me. So I took the concept of this apple crisp and ran with the idea and made it for one! Here is the Recipe:

Apple Crisp for One

Ingredients:

  • 1 Small Baking Apple (about  21 carbs)  (I used a honeycrisp)
  • 2 TBS (4 carbs)Old fashioned Oats divided
  • (optional) 1/2 scoop of Swansons vanilla Whey Isolate protein powder
  •  1 Tsp Butter
  •  1-2 Tsp Truvia or THM Sweet Blend or 1-2 shakes Stevia extract
  •  1 Tsp Ground cinnamon
  •  1/8 Tsp sea salt
  •  1 Tsp water mixed with a shake of Glucomannan
  • Optional Fat Free Redi-whip

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Begin by peeling, coring, and dicing your apple place in a mixing bowl and add ground cinnamon, truvia or stevia, & optional Protein Powder salt and toss together until your apples are coated on all sides. Next add the teaspoon of water mixed with gluccie (our affectionate name for Glucomannan ) and toss.

I then ground one TBS of my oats in a coffee grinder until it was the consistency of flour, after that I melted my butter in a small skillet  and added the ground oats and whole oats stirring consistently until they had absorbed the butter and resembled crumble.
Pour the apple cinnamon mixture into a small oven-safe ramekin, and then sprinkle your oat crumble on top. Place on a cookie sheet and in the oven bake for 20-22 min. Allow it to cool for a few minutes before devouring it or else you will end up like me and burn your tongue while savoring the deliciousness that is this dessert.

I hope that you enjoy this recipe! I would love to hear feed back from you! Print the recipe here: Apple Crisp For One

  1. I missed the protein powder in the ingredients and didn’t see it in the instructions but the apple crisp is in the oven. I made it for two. Thanks!

    1. Hey Mandy, I have actually tried it both ways and I found that if I toss it with the Apple mixture I enjoy it more. I also add about a 1/2 a tsp more water to the mixture to help it retain smooth texture. When I mixed it with my oatmeal topping it gave it a bit of a gritty texture. – Mel
