Weight Watchers Apple Dessert Recipes – Crisps & Cobblers
Apple Pear Cranberry Crisp with Gingersnap Topping
I got the idea for this apple, pear, cranberry crisp with gingersnap topping from a similar recipe on Cookie Madness. By skipping the crust and decreasing the amount of fat in the topping, I was able to create a tasty, sweet and tangy satisfying apple, pear and cranberry crisp with gingersnap topping with 8 Points.
Quick & Easy Crock Pot Apple Cobbler
I love fruit desserts of all kinds. Particularly cakes, crisps, crumbles and cobblers, which are just as delicious as pie. But so much easier to make, especially in the slow cooker! This quick and easy crock pot apple cobbler is a perfect example. You need just a few apples and basic pantry staples to make it.
Single-Serving Microwave Apple Crisp
So simple to make and tastes just like grandma’s old-fashioned apple crisp. Can be enjoyed as is, with light whipped topping, non-fat frozen yogurt, or even for breakfast (or brunch) with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt!
Healthy Baked Apples
Here’s a simple, low-fat, healthy apple dessert perfect for a cool fall evening – or anytime really – since apples are available year round. Baked apples are the kind of simple old-fashioned dish that never really goes out of style probably because they’re healthy and delicious.
Slow Cooker Baked Apples with Gingersnaps
I intended to make easy, healthy and delicious picture-perfect slow cooker baked apples with Gingersnaps, but I ended up with overcooked slow cooker baked apples that lost their shape and ended up with the consistency of chunky applesauce. It was still delicious!
Weight Watchers Apple Dessert Recipes – Cakes
Light Italian Apple Cake – This quickly prepared apple cake is typical of the simple and flavorful desserts of this mountain region. Use a firm, tart apple, such as Granny Smith, Pippins or Northern Spies are excellent also, if you can find them.
Healthy Harvest Fresh Apple Cake – Every October, I find myself craving a piece of my mom’s fresh apple cake. It’s a great cake, but loaded with fat and sugar. This year, I found myself craving a different kind of fresh apple cake. A light, healthy, low-fat apple cake that would be both delicious and better for me.

Easy Slow Cooker Applesauce Spice Cake – If you like simple old-fashioned scratch cakes, I think you’ll enjoy the flavor and texture of this easy slow cooker applesauce spice cake. This recipe makes a relatively small cake that is supposed to serve 6. You could cut the calories/points by substituting more of the butter with applesauce.
Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Cake – Instead of baking this slow cooker cranberry apple cake in a loaf pan, I baked it directly in the crock of the slow cooker, which I lined with parchment paper. Served warm with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream, it made a delectable dessert. This slow cooker cranberry apple cake also would be a great addition to your Christmas breakfast/brunch.
