So you all are probably used to seeing this full-sized version of my WLS-friendly Apple Crumble:
But here’s the deal.
I’ve heard from a lot of you that you need something a little smaller. Maybe you live by yourself or just one other person. Maybe the rest of your family recoils at sugar-free desserts. Or maybe you just don’t want to have to deal with an entire 9×13 inch dish of apple crumble. Whatever your reason, I heard you!
This recipe yields just two little ramekins (the ones pictured are 4 oz. ramekins). That’s just enough where you can have a few servings of it and be done with it. Because dessert should not be a burden!
The original, full-sized crumble also appears in The Bariatric Foodie Holiday Survival Guide, available on Amazon. Check it out for WLS-friendly swaps for all your favorite holiday recipes (including kosher recipes developed by one of my favorite people in the world, Joy Muller from Kosher Bariatric).

- In a bullet-style blender or mini-food processor, pulse butter, cereal, almonds and sweetener until mixture is thorougly combined (will start to clump a little). Spoon mixture over each ramekin.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until topping is crispy and filling bubbles over the topping.
what is a higher fiber cereal mentioned in this recipe?
I use a variety of types but my favorite is Fiber One original. Use what works best for you though!
I just made this tonight, I LOVE IT!!! Perfect size and delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
I’m so glad you enjoyed! This gets me over the hump of wanting apple pie.
