I’m not sure if you knew this, but I’m a huge apple addict. ?❤ I legit eat an apple a day most days of the week. I love the crunch and natural sweetness of apples and they make such a great healthy snack. I also love cooking with apples and making apple-flavored desserts. My whole wheat apple cinnamon breakfast cookies are a morning favorite in our house. And each fall when apples are at their peak season, I look forward to making my easy healthy apple crisp stacks, which are a lightened up and much easier version of apple pie.
Today I’m sharing my Weight Watchers apple cobbler, which is a year-long favorite in our house and also so easy to make. So this apple cobbler is lightened up but I promise it’s every bit as delicious. It’s got just a touch of butter for richness, the perfect balance of cinnamon with a hint of nutmeg and it uses mostly honey for sweetness, which adds depth to the baked cobbler. I also use a little brown sugar to sprinkle on top of the topping, which helps it caramelize in the oven.
Oh and that topping! It’s super thick and gets a crunchy coating on top that pairs so well with the tender, soft apples. You’ll be going back for bite after bite! Now, as much as I love the cobbler topping, sometimes I want a healthy apple crisp. The crunchy oat topping calls to me. It’s all about what mood I’m in, cobbler or crisp.
Highly recommend adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top when serving this cobbler. It’s kind of the perfect combination. Especially when you scoop some of the sauce from the bottom of the casserole to drizzle over top. Swoon!
Next time you need a lighter dessert that’s warm and comforting, I hope you’ll give this one a try! And if you want a set and forget option, this crockpot apple cobbler has your name all over it!
