Sugar-Free Caramel Apple Crisp

Yesterday was a bad day at work. I lost some of my data I had been working on and I can’t get it back so now I have to re-do some of my work! Wahhhhhhh!! Why do computers have to be so darn complicated?! After having a bad day at work, I was really looking forward to coming home to this caramel apple crisp. I’ve been so into using pumpkin in my recipes lately that I realized I forgot one of my other favorite fall ingredients, apples! I wanted to make a good dessert this week, but without all the sugar. This apple crisp was so easy to throw together and it tasted really good for a sugar-free dessert! If you don’t mind the sugar, you could just swap out the Splenda for regular sugar. There is nothing better than apples baking away in the oven!

Sugar-Free Caramel Apple Crisp

Serves 6


Apple Filling:

– 6 apples (I used McIntosh), peeled and sliced into small slices or cubes

– 1/2 cup Splenda granular

– 1 tbs. lemon juice

– 1 tsp. cinnamon

– 1/2 tsp. nutmeg

– pinch of salt

– 1 tbs. unsalted butter, cut into small cubes


– 1 cup oat flour

– 1 cup quick oats

– 1/4 cup Splenda granular

– 3 tbs. butter, melted

– 1/4-1/2 cup sugar-free caramel topping

Optional toppings: Sugar-free/no sugar added vanilla ice cream, additional caramel, nuts


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add diced apples to a bowl. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, splenda, lemon juice, and salt. Mix well. Add mixture into a small baking dish. Evenly distribute the small butter cubes around the dish. Set aside.

2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, and splenda. Add melted butter and stir well into the mixture. If mixture still seems really dry and powdery, you may want to add some additional butter. Sprinkle the flour and oat mixture evenly over the apples. Drizzle with the caramel topping on top. Cover with foil and bake for approximately 35-40 minutes or until the topping has browned and apple mixture begins to slightly bubble over the topping. Serve with ice cream and additional caramel!

  7. Work may have stunk, but apple crisp makes everything better! Hope tomorrow is a better day for you/

  8. I hope tomorrow gets better for you! I know this would make me feel a bit better :)

  9. Work sucks sometimes! Hope today is a better day! These little apple crisps are perfect. I love apple crisp, but the rest of my family doesn’t. What a great idea to make them mini!

  10. I’d forgone apples for pumpkin until earlier this week as well. And there is nothing like the smell of apples baking in your kitchen :) This crisp sounds like the perfect ending to a rough day.

  11. Ahh! These look too good! I wish I could reach into the screen and just dig in! Very tempted to try these. Thanks for sharing, have a good one! =]

  12. This will definitely make your bad day a lot better. I wish these delicious apple crisps are waiting for me at the end of day…I’d be so happy and forget about everything else! Well, my day isn’t too bad but my kids wore me out! I would love this with good vanilla ice cream. Yum!

  13. Is it still sugar free if you add the caramel sauce? A bowl like that is right up my alley! Looks delicious!

  14. I could use two of these right about now… make mine with real sugar, please. ;)

  15. Absolutely delicious! I’m sorry you lost some data, tho…but I’m GLAD you made this recipe!

  16. Wow – I would devour this recipe. I’ve been on a caramel apple kick lately (just made some oatmeal caramel apple bars) but I think your use of ice cream throws this one over the top.

  17. Yay to SF deserts! I love any type of Apple crisp, Im totally craving this for dessert tonight now. =)

  18. I just made this, but without the caramel sauce. Is there a recipe for your sugar free caramel sauce? I didn’t see it. It looks a little dry without it, but we will serve it with sugar free ice cream. The only difference I made, was hubby and I can’t have any white or wheat flour, so I used spelt flour instead. Also, I doubled the topping. We love the topping. Thanks for this recipe.
