Sigh, like many people we have to consider our weight. The lower fat options available in some of the dieting books would be the choice. Change the crumble to something with less calories and cut back on the sugar and use a substitute.

Low Fat Blueberry Crumbles
Lower in fat recipes so they are slightly less calories. However eat with caution as they are not as low as I would like. I would substitute the sugar with sweetener and not use nuts etc for an even lower calorie solution.

Healthier Option Blueberry Crumbles
Now I know what it is like for those of us who are weight watching so here are some lower fat options.
Now I watched a programme last night that made it quite clear that just because something says it is healthy does not mean that it is. So while these are lower fat options that are healthier double check your calorie intake or particular diet rules if choosing to make these as while they are the lower fat or healthier options intake still needs to be monitored.
The main issue with making crumbles low fat is the topping and sugar content. Find alternatives to these and you can substitute for any of the recipes. For those of you who follow Slimming World remember to point your fruit if you are cooking it! The recipes here are around 225 to 300 calories so you may have to save up your points.
The problem with substituting sugar is that it changes the consistency of your crumble. One way to limit this would be to use half spoon sugar or to combine half sugar with half sweetener. Depending on your country you may also have access to the Stevia leaf sugar alternative which can also be granular in some cases.
Many of these recipes are already made from the healthier option of oats.
The good thing about making things yourself is that you know what goes into them so there are no hidden surprises!.
