Apple and Strawberry Crumble
low Carbs, low sugar
This apple and strawberry crumble is low in carbs and low in sugar. You could quite easily make it sugar-free, but I think a little demerara sugar always makes a good crumble topping.
Crumble has always been one of my favourites, but it’s loaded with sugar and carbohydrates. In this recipe I have cut them down but kept the taste. You can quite easily make it completely sugar and carb free. I’ll show you how below.

- Approx. 23g carbs per slice
To make a carb free and sugar free version. Replace plain flour with ground almonds/almond flour, and switch the 40g demerara sugar for 20g of sugar alternative. You want a coarse one like erythritol. Or, I like to use a brown sugar alternative. When making it completely sugar-free, I like to mix the brown sugar alternative with some erythitol. You don’t need as much sugar, when making this version as we get some sweetness from the almonds.
Add flour, ground almonds, butter, sugar alternative and sugar to a bowl. Mix and rub together using fingertips until it forms a breadcrumbs consistency.
Add a sprinkle of cinnamon and mix in (optional)
Put to one side
Sprinkle a little cinnamon over the apples (as pictured)
Add crumble topping to apples and strawberries, and spread evenly over the top.
Bake at 180C in the middle of the oven for 25-30 minutes.
To keep the carbs and sugar low, why not serve it with double cream.
