Indulging in a slice of warm, spiced apple pie is one of life's simple pleasures. But if you're watching your waistline, it can be a tricky treat to navigate. That's why we've created a healthier version that doesn't skimp on flavor or satisfaction. Our low-fat, low-sugar apple pie with a whole wheat crust will leave you feeling guilt-free and completely satisfied.

Weight Watcher Friendly Apple Pie Recipe

Get ready to indulge in a delicious and healthier version of the classic Apple Pie! Our recipe uses a whole wheat and mashed banana crust, giving it a unique and flavorful twist. Plus, we've swapped out traditional honey for my favorite, Walden Farms Maple Walnut Syrup in the filling to reduce the calories and sugar content. You'll love the sweet and tangy taste of the apples, mixed with the warm and comforting spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. This Apple Pie is the perfect dessert to enjoy with friends and family, guilt-free!

Health Benefits of Apple Pie

Not only is our Apple Pie delicious, but it's also healthy! The whole wheat flour used in the crust provides more fiber and nutrients than traditional all-purpose flour, and apples are packed with vitamins and antioxidants.

Fun Facts About the Recipe

The secret to this crust is using MASHED BANANA instead of the butter. Not only does it drastically reduce the points, but it gives the crust a unique and unexpected flavor.

Serving Suggestions:

Our Apple Pie is delicious on its own, but it's even better with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream. You can freeze cool whip for a low point alternative as well. Serve it up warm and enjoy the sweet, tangy goodness!

Here are some other serving suggestions that are low in fat and sugar:

  1. Top with a dollop of Greek yogurt instead of whipped cream.
  2. Serve with a scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt or sorbet.
  3. Sprinkle with a small amount of cinnamon and serve with a side of fresh fruit.
  4. Top with a small handful of chopped nuts, such as almonds or walnuts, for added crunch and healthy fats.
  5. Serve with a small glass of unsweetened almond milk or other non-dairy milk alternative.

Yield: 8

Try our healthier version of Apple Pie with a mashed banana crust and Walden Farms Maple Walnut Syrup in the filling. Enjoy the sweet taste of apples with warm spices in this guilt-free dessert!


Pie Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup mashed bananas (about 1 medium-sized banana)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons ice water

Pie Crust Filling

  • 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (about 6 medium apples)
  • 1/2 cup Walden Farms Maple Walnut Syrup
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Whole Wheat Pie Crust:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, salt, and sugar.
  2. Add the mashed bananas to the bowl and mix them into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Gradually add the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, stirring the mixture with a fork after each addition. Stop adding water once the dough starts to come together and form a ball.
  4. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead it a few times until it's smooth and pliable.
  5. Flatten the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes before using it in your recipe.

Pie Crust Filling:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large bowl, toss the sliced apples with Pyure Sugar-Free Honey and lemon juice until well coated.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt until well combined.
  4. Add the cornstarch mixture to the apples and toss until the apples are evenly coated.
  5. Pour the apple mixture into a 9-inch pie crust.
  6. Top the pie with the second crust and crimp the edges to seal.
  7. Cut several slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  8. Bake the pie for 45 to 55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  9. Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool completely before serving.


Using mashed bananas instead of oil or butter in the crust will lower the fat content and add natural sweetness to the crust. Keep in mind that the texture may be slightly different from a traditional pie crust, but it should still be delicious and healthy!
