Here’s another tasty holiday dessert recipe that is sure to go over very well with your dinner guests! It’s incredibly easy to make, tastes fabulous and is a great Weight Watchers Christmas Dessert to enjoy, if you are counting your Points.

This apple cobbler recipe or apple streusel recipe, is great to make in lieu of an apple pie because it will save you a lot of Weight Watchers Points, but still have the same general taste as your traditional apple pie recipe.

Another thing I liked about this dish was that it was SO easy to serve. Most apple cobblers, streusels or pies can get messy when served in the usual pie dish.

When I made this for a dinner party, I prepared individual servings in little dessert bowls, and simply set them out for guests to grab as they mingled around. It looked so CUTE and was a unique, gourmet way of serving it. And of course, it tasted so good, no one knew that each serving of these cute little serving was so low in calories.

If you are a Weight Watcher, the holidays can be tough — so give this low calorie apple streusel recipe a try this Christmas and enjoy a traditional holiday treat without all the extra fat and calories!

    I have been making this for years. To cut calories i used splenda brown sugar im having trouble finding reduced calorie marjorine, what brands do you use? Anyone know how many smartpoints?

  2. thank you so much I’m a new wife trying to loose weight on WW and it was really hard to come up with recipes especially because I don’t know how to cook! you took all the guess work out for me! thank you!

  3. I put this into the Weight Watchers Recipe builder with a yield of 6 1/2 cup servings and the points plus value came up as 5pts.

    Same question as MMM; Are the points indicated calculated for the Points Plus program? Also, where can I find a list of foods with the points calculated? I have an older WW booklet that lists almost any food you can think of and the number of points each item is worth.

  5. Are the points indicated calculated for the new(er) Points Plus program that started Dec, 2010 or for the previous program?

  6. Recipe sounds great but could I have the nutrition fact break down


  7. Thanks so much for posting this! What size bowl do you use? I'm starting out at my very first place and don't have many dishes, so I'd like to buy the right size so I can make this all the time :)

  8. Thanks for the clarification.

    I did make this and it turned out great.

    This is another keeper.

  9. I know this is a older recipe, but I'm restarting WW and just found your site.

    Should the apples be left whole or cored and cut uo.
