Satisfying Your Sweet Tooth The Healthy Way
Satisfying your sweet tooth can be a difficult challenge on any healthy diet. But I’ve got a quick and easy recipe that’s sure to do the trick.
It’s a healthy, low fat recipe for apple crumble. Any time you go for something sweet, you’re always best to start with fresh fruit. Although there is indeed sugar in fruit, it’s not the processed kind of sugar that you put in your coffee, and it comes along with a bunch of nutritional content to keep you fit and healthy.
Apples are especially smart choices on a fat loss diet. They contain a number of ingredients, including dietary fiber, that boost your metabolism and suppress your appetite, satisfying the worst of cravings. They make great snacks on their own, or they can be included in a dish like this one when you’re looking for something a little more substantial.
This recipe also includes oats, which are great whole grain carbs to include in a healthy diet plan. They’re also high in fiber, and they contain a pretty decent dose of protein to really fuel your muscles. Add to this the thermogenic and metabolism-enhancing cinnamon, and you’ve got the perfect sweet snack for burning fat.

My Healthy Apple Crumble Recipe – Single Serving
This is a pretty simple recipe that keeps the ingredient count to a minimum, so it can easily be thrown together on a whim. This recipe is for a single serving of apple crumble, but it can easily be multiplied as needed. Here’s what you need:
- 1 medium sized tart apple (e.g., granny smith), diced
- ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of dark brown sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon of salt
- 3 tablespoons of quick oats
- 1 tablespoon of butter or coconut oil, slightly melted
- Walnuts and/or raisins as desired
Here’s what to do:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and lightly grease a small baking dish. Grab a mixing bowl, and combine cinnamon, brown sugar, and salt. Then add in apples and coat well with dry mixture.
In a separate bowl, mix oats with slightly melted butter or coconut oil and mix to apple mixture. (I recommend trying Nutiva Organic Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil here for the healthiest recipe possible). Add in walnuts and/or raisins as desired (about 1/4 cup or so).
Bake for about 30 minutes on the middle rack, and allow to cool before serving. That’s it! It’s pretty simple, and if you’re like me, you have all of these ingredients on hand anyway.
