With Halloween, and all those other food focused holidays just around the corner, I’ve been in the kitchen a LOT, looking for some yummy Weight Watchers Holiday Recipes to share with all of you! I’m a sucker for all the delicious homemade Halloween Recipes that are all over the place right now, and thought this tasty, low calorie Apple Cobbler Recipe was something everyone would enjoy. Just by making a few, simple substitutions to the traditional cobbler recipe, I was able to get the Points to just 4 per serving. Not bad. Your guests are in for both a trick and treat if you serve this delicious dessert at your Halloween party this year. No one will have any idea that this homemade apple cobbler is Weight Watchers friendly!

  1. Jennifer,

    Can you give me a little more specifics on your version with the oatmeal. Like, how much do you use and do you put in all the other ingredients with the apples except for the flour? Thanks!

    • This recipe doesn't call for oatmeal, so I'm not sure what you are referring to… ?

  2. Another tip to also bring the point total down—instead of using flour (don't use any at all), but the apples on the bottom and cover them with some unmade oatmeal (after mixing all the ingredients). As it bakes, the oatmeal layer turns softer on the bottom, like a pie crust, but the top of the layer gets crispy. Really nice texture.

  3. Thank you for this recipe and for all the time you put into your site. I must mention your site at least once a day to someone and my entire WW meeting knows who you are now.

    This recipe was delicious and actually won me the "Halloween Bake-Off" at my office last week. No one knew it was healthy until after they voted and it was really nice to see a WW recipe beat all the double chocolate brownies and carrot cakes smothered in cream cheese frosting. A tip that I found online for anyone that's never peeled a ton of apples before – to keep them from turning brown – buy a bottle of diet 7-up (or any other diet lemon-lime soda), dump it into a big bowl and put the slices in there as you go, none of them will turn brown. Drain the slices into a colander when you're done and voila – pretty apple slices that won't turn brown.

    I'm also a HUGE fan of your pumpkin oatmeal recipe. I make a double batch, dish it out into individual portions and freeze them so I can have a yummy breakfast anytime I want.

    Please keep adding to your site – it's made my WW experience so much more interesting.

    Thanks again, Paula

    • Wow!! Winner of the Halloween Bake Off!?!?? That's super impressive!! Congrats, Paula! That Apple Cobbler is deelish, and NO ONE would ever know that it's a low calorie dessert recipe. Thanks so much for your positive feedback and for spreading the word about LaaLoosh. It's so great that we, as Weight Watchers, can share free WW recipes that are healthy and yummy with each other, without having to spend an arm and a leg on cookbooks. Oh, and thanks for the tip with the lemon lime soda! I knew lemons did the trick, but didn't know that the lemon lime soda would work too. Great suggestion!!
