Sugar Free Apple Pie with Crumble Topping

Apple Pie recipe
Whether you are a diabetic like my husband, or just wanting to enjoy a dessert with less sugar, this apple pie recipe will let you enjoy a scrumptious sweet treat without all the refined sugar. Since the apples play the starring role in this pie, and not the sugar, the choice of apples is critical.

This recipe does have a little brown sugar in the "splenda' brown sugar mixture for the crumble topping. This is a mixture of sugar free and real brown sugar, but this is the only added sugar in the entire recipe.

My husband prefers this for his birthday cake. He has a September birthday, so with Apples in season, this makes it an easy "cake" to make him!

Apple Pie with Crumble Topping

Jan's Tips: 
Tapioca: This comes in those tiny red boxes in the pudding aisle at the store. It us used to help thicken the apple juices into a beautiful pie filling! I use it in my peach cobblers too! It's my secret weapon!(shh, don't tell anyone!)

Sweetener to the Apple? I do not add any extra sugar substitute or sweetener to my apples. I just let the apples be sweet enough on their own. Especially when I use my favorite..  Envy Brand, Honeycrisp. , but feel free to sprinkle in any sugar substitute or even drizzle in some honey to your apples if you prefer a bit of extra sweetness. The Crumble topping provides enough extra sweetness for my hubby.

Baking Time: My oven  seems to require at least 75 min to get my apples to tender, sometimes even a bit longer, but i start checking at about 50 minutes. by poking into the pie wth a fork and see if they are "fork" tender.
