Soft, sweet stewed apples and crunchy muesli – wow, they are just made for each other! This wonderful easy apple crumble is made with healthy homemade muesli baked over a layer of cinnamon flavoured stewed apples.

To make low calorie apple crumble, first make the stewed apples. For that combine ½ cup of water, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks and lemon juice in a broad non-stick pan, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 30 seconds or till the brown sugar dissolves completely. Add the apples, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 7 to 8 minutes or till the apples turn soft, while stirring once in between. Discard the cinnamon and keep aside to cool slightly. Next combine all ingredients for muesli and roast for 2 minutes. Cool slightly. Finally grease a baking dish lightly using low-fat butter. Spread the stewed apples at the base of a baking dish and spread the muesli evenly over it. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (400°F) for 10 minutes or till the muesli turns golden brown in colour. Serve immediately.

Walnuts used in Indian style baked apple crumble, though a bit fatty, do more good than harm here as they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which keep the arteries healthy and elastic, strengthening the heart as well. Oats further add fibre to this healthy dessert.

An acceptable amount of brown sugar (1 tbsp) has been used to stew the apples, which cannot be done with a sugar substitute. However, this low calorie baked apple crisp still has considerably less fat and sugar than the traditional apple crumble, making it okay to enjoy this fibre-rich dessert as an occasional, portioned treat. You can opt to go completely sugar free, if you wish to.

heart patients, weight-watchers and those who wish to eat a healthy dessert, can add this low calorie apple crumble to their meals as an occasional treat. Also remember to enjoy a small portion and not go overboard enjoying its flavour and texture. Diabetics can have a small portion by cooking the apples without brown sugar and also by balancing the carbs in a particular meal.

Tips for low calorie apple crumble. 1. The slight lemon juice has been added to prevent the apples from turning brown due to oxidation. 2. Wheat bran has been added to add to its fibre count. But if it isn’t easily available, you can avoid it.
