We had a great weekend apple picking and baking. Today we are sharing a quick No Sugar Added Apple Crisp Recipe. My dad, grandfather and husband are all diabetic so whenever I cook, I always try to incorporate a no sugar added version. Fall in New England is absolutely beautiful and we are fortunate to have a local orchard just five minutes from our house. We spent this past Sunday at the orchard and all afternoon in the kitchen baking. I even got my dad to peel a couple apples for me! Every Fall, it’s a tradition in our home to bake together as a family and part of the fun, is completely destroying the kitchen.-ha. I am of the mind set that once you start one recipe, why not keep going and bake a few. The kitchen is already a mess! My grandmother has baked her whole life and now that she is slowing down, it’s tough for her to manage in the kitchen so she loves when we all bake together. She just sits back, watches and reaps the benefits. Going to the apple orchard as a family and then baking sweet treats is always an event that we look forward too. Last month we shared our family boat ride as part of our partnership with Tylenol and “How We Family.” This month, apple picking and baking is how we are celebrating how “we” family.

Baking is a great way to bring family together. Usually my mom and gram (and me) do the baking but occasionally, then men will hang out and steal the food. -ha.
Baking without sugar can be a bit of a challenge but we tend to use sugar free syrup in place of sugar when we can. Here is our quick and easy no sugar added apple crisp.
No Sugar Added Apple Crisp Recipe
- 5 apples cored and peeled
- lemon juice
- 1/2 sugar free maple syrup
- 1/2 cup Truvia brown sugar blend or splenda brown sugar
- 1/2 cup Splenda sugar blend
- 1/4 cup corn starch
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups water
- Place peeled sliced/chopped apples in 9" pie plate and toss with 1 tsp lemon juice.
- Add sugars, cornstarch and seasonings to sauce pan. Pour in water and maple syrup and bring to a slight boil (medium heat). Be sure to stir often as the mixture will stick to the bottom as the sauce pan heats up. One the mixture comes to a boil, set aside and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Once the pie plate is filled with apples, pour the sugar liquid mixture over the apples. Top with crumb mix and bake 375 for 20 - 25 minutes or until bubbly on sides.
- CRUMB MIX:
- cup oats
- /2 cup Truvia brown sugar blend
- stick melted butter
- Mix together in mixer
For those of you who can’t eat sugar, sugar free maple syrup is a great way to sweeten foods while baking. It doesn’t work for all recipes but certainly when working with apples, it’s a great way to add a bit of sweetness.

My dad and son are pretty silly when they are together.
It doesn’t matter if they are watching a movie or baking apple crisp, they are goof balls! That’s how we family. Laughter, goofiness and having fun. We would love to hear your no sugar recipes! We are always looking for new ways to cook and bake that are diabetic friendly. Please tell us in the comment section “how you family” and if you have any fun family stories to share.
