This quick, simple and Low Carb Apple Crumble with Walnuts and Ginger makes a perfect Sunday breakfast/brunch recipe idea.
This Low Carb Apple Crumble with Walnuts and Ginger is the perfect autumn recipe using seasonal apples. I used my favourite Bramley cooking apples, but you can use another sour variety if you can’t get Bramley apples where you live.
Apple crumble (or apple crisp) is such a classic dessert I am sure most people have tried it at least once. It’s delicious, warming and perfect at this time of the year. It can be made in many different ways to suit individual tastes.
Plus it’s very simple and easy to make.
Healthy low carb apple crumble recipe
My recipe for apple crumble is quite low in sugar and high in fibre. This makes it not only perfect to enjoy as a healthy dessert but it can also be eaten for breakfast. It is a great recipe to make for a weekend brunch, when we tend to have a bit more time to potter around in the kitchen.
This easy apple crumble recipe is also a great dish to make with kids. Little hands would be more than able to help make a great crumble mixture! A similar recipe that’s also perfect for making with kids is this easy Maple Pecan Baked Apples Recipe.
I swapped flour for wheatgerm in this breakfast apple crisp recipe, so it is quite nutritious. (Wheatgerm is a good source of folic acid and Vitamin E). Other typical breakfast ingredients include oats as well as ginger preserve. The ginger preserve adds both flavour as well as sweetness to the apple mixture.
So there is no need to add any sugar! How good is that?
Note about the apples
If you are using Bramley apples, which are very sour, taste the mixture before popping the dish in the oven. You may want to add more jam for extra sweetness.
As this is not a typical dessert recipe I decided not to peel the apples and make this dish more robust. Less waste plus there is goodness in the skin too!
The walnuts make a gorgeous addition to this easy apple crisp with oats. They pair beautifully with both the apple and the ginger. Not to mention the extra fibre they contribute! I’ve added them into the crumble topping for extra crunch and flavour.
I hope you enjoy this simple and delicious healthy low carb apple crumble!
