WW Recipe of the Day: WW Friendly Apple Desserts
Looking for some new WW apple dessert recipes?
I love making apple treats in the fall. There's something magical about the smell of crisp apples and cinnamon baking in the oven or slow cooker.
I've gathered together my favorite Weight Watchers Apple Dessert Recipes that I've made through the years, as well as yummy ones from my other favorite Weight Watchers friendly recipe sites.
Weight Watchers Apple Dessert Recipes - Crisps & Cobblers
Apple Pear Cranberry Crisp with Gingersnap Topping
(*6 PointsPlus | *7 SmartPoints) - I got the idea for this apple, pear, cranberry crisp with gingersnap topping from a similar recipe on Cookie Madness. By skipping the crust and decreasing the amount of fat in the topping, I was able to create a tasty, sweet and tangy satisfying apple, pear and cranberry crisp with gingersnap topping with just *6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *7 SmartPoints.
Quick & Easy Crock Pot Apple Cobbler (*6 PointsPlus | *9 SmartPoints)
I love fruit desserts of all kinds. Particularly cakes, crisps, crumbles and cobblers, which are just as delicious as pie. But so much easier to make, especially in the slow cooker! This quick and easy crock pot apple cobbler is a perfect example. You need just a few apples and basic pantry staples to make it.
Healthy Baked Apples (*3 PointsPlus | *2 SmartPoints)
Here's a simple, low-fat, healthy apple dessert perfect for a cool fall evening – or anytime really – since apples are available year round. Baked apples are the kind of simple old-fashioned dish that never really goes out of style probably because they're healthy and delicious.
Slow Cooker Baked Apples with Gingersnaps (*4 PointsPlus | *5 SmartPoints)
I intended to make easy, healthy and delicious picture-perfect slow cooker baked apples with Gingersnaps, but I ended up with overcooked slow cooker baked apples that lost their shape and ended up with the consistency of chunky applesauce. It was still delicious!
Single-Serving Microwave Apple Crisp (*8 PointsPlus | *5 green, blue, purple SmartPoints)
So simple to make and tastes just like grandma's old-fashioned apple crisp. Can be enjoyed as is, with light whipped topping, non-fat frozen yogurt, or even for breakfast (or brunch) with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt!
Weight Watchers Apple Dessert Recipes - Cakes
Healthy Harvest Fresh Apple Cake (*6 PointsPlus | *8 SmartPoints) - Every October, I find myself craving a piece of my mom's fresh apple cake. It's a great cake, but loaded with fat and sugar. This year, I found myself craving a different kind of fresh apple cake. A light, healthy, low-fat apple cake that would be both delicious and better for me.
Slow Cooker Apple Cake (*6 PointsPlus | *9 SmartPoints) - Check out this slow cooker apple cake! It's my first attempt at baking in the slow cooker. I'm really impressed with the results. This slow cooker apple cake baked up moist, dense and delicious. Chock full of chunks of apples, it’s a perfect dessert for fall.
Easy Slow Cooker Applesauce Spice Cake (*7 PointsPlus | *12 SmartPoints) - If you like simple old-fashioned scratch cakes, I think you'll enjoy the flavor and texture of this easy slow cooker applesauce spice cake. This recipe makes a relatively small cake that is supposed to serve 6. You could cut the calories/points by substituting more of the butter with applesauce.
Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Cake (*5 PointsPlus | *7 SmartPoints) - Instead of baking this slow cooker cranberry apple cake in a loaf pan (affiliate link), I baked it directly in the crock of the slow cooker, which I lined with parchment paper. Served warm with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream, it made a delectable dessert. This slow cooker cranberry apple cake also would be a great addition to your Christmas breakfast/brunch.
Weight Watchers Apple Dessert Recipes: Cookies & Brownies
Low-Fat Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies (*3 PointsPlus | *4 SmartPoints) - These low-fat applesauce oatmeal cookies are simple wholesome cookies that are easy to make and really satisfying. They smell like apple pie as they bake and are an easy drop cookie with a chewy cake-like consistency.

The recipe jumped out of me from the pages of one of my favorite cookbooks. Each cookie has just *2 WW Points+, *3 WW SmartPoints.
Skinny Apple Brownies (*4 PointsPlus | *6 SmartPoints) - Moist and chewy blonde brownies chock full of chopped apples and walnuts. If you're like me and love apple desserts, I hope you give these simple apple brownies (AKA apple nut bars) a try.
3-Ingredient Sugar Free Apple Cookies (*2 PointsPlus | *2 SmartPoints) - These easy almond apple cookies have only 3 ingredients and mix together in minutes. The recipe makes a nice small batch of 12 cookies—perfect for small families or anyone cooking for one or two.
