Just because you're managing diabetes doesn't mean you can't have a delicious dessert every now and then. This delicious APPLE and RASPBERRY crumble is divine. Enjoy!

Diabetic-Friendly Apple and Raspberry Crumble:

Ingredients:

For the Filling:

  • 4 medium apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the Crumble Topping:

  • 1 cup rolled oats (gluten-free, if needed)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, or pecans)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or melted butter (unsalted)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-2 tablespoons natural sweetener (e.g., stevia, erythritol, or monk fruit), to taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, raspberries, lemon juice, cornstarch or arrowroot powder, and ground cinnamon. Gently toss to coat the fruit evenly.

  3. Transfer the fruit mixture to a baking dish or individual ramekins.

  4. In a separate bowl, combine the rolled oats, almond flour, chopped nuts, coconut oil or melted butter, ground cinnamon, and natural sweetener. Mix until the ingredients are well combined and the mixture has a crumbly texture.

  5. Evenly distribute the crumble topping over the fruit mixture in the baking dish.

  6. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the fruit is tender and the topping is golden brown.

  7. Remove from the oven and let the crumble cool slightly before serving.

  8. Serve warm on its own or with a dollop of unsweetened Greek yogurt or a small scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt (choose options with no added sugars or artificial sweeteners).

Note: Adjust the amount of natural sweetener according to your taste preferences and dietary needs. Remember that individual responses to sweeteners may vary, so it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional or dietitian if you're unsure about which sweetener to use.

This diabetic-friendly apple and raspberry crumble allows you to enjoy the comforting flavors of a classic dessert while keeping added sugars in check. Remember that portion control is key, as even healthier desserts should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced meal plan.
