Sugar free easy apple strudel has all the sweet flavours of a traditional strudel dessert even though it’s sugar free. You’ll love this simple to make delicious healthy apple strudel recipe.
You folks loved my sugar free cinnamon apple crumble recipe.
So I’m pretty sure you’ll love this delicious healthier sugar free apple strudel recipe too!
Crispy filo pastry wrapped around a deliciously sweet apple cinnamon and raisin filling. What’s not to love about that?
Only 5 ingredients are needed so it’s easy to make too.
Perfect for dinner parties of up to 6. With this apple strudel filo recipe you can let the conversation flow without having to spend lot’s of time stuck in the kitchen preparing dessert!
In order to make this recipe sugar free I substituted sugar with Stevia instead.
Stevia is an herb, originally from South America, though it now grows throughout the world.
Plus I made this apple strudel with filo pastry instead of traditional puff pastry.
Using filo pastry means this strudel dessert is lower calorie and suitable for vegans too.
The reason why filo pastry is much healthier than puff pastry and suitable for vegans is because it’s made only from flour and water.
Traditional apple strudel variations use a layered pastry made from flour and fats such as oil or butter. Those pastries are high in fat.
So eliminating that fat content of the pastry reduces the amount of calories too.
Of course as usual just let me say here that neither Lynne or I exclude sugar or treats with sugar entirely from our diet.
Not at all!
We just choose to minimise or exclude sugar when we can. Saving our sugar allocation for another time.
All under the rules of 80/20 rule for eating! 🙂

- Low fat cooking oil spray
- 650 g cooking apples peeled, cored and diced
- 75 g raisins
- 1.5 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1 tsp stevia powder
- 6 Filo pastry sheets
- Preheat the oven to 170C Fan. Lightly grease a baking tray using the cooking oil spray.
- Place the apples, raisins, cinnamon and stevia into a bowl and mix by hand.
- Lay out a sheet of the filo pastry and lightly spray it with the cooking oil. Lay another sheet on top and repeat this process until you have used all of the 6 filo pastry sheets.
- Arrange the apple mixture lengthways evenly along the centre of the pastry to within 2-3cm of each edge. Fold the two shorter edges over the filling and then roll the sheets up to form a log shape.
- Lightly spray the strudel with the cooking oil spray. Then carefully transfer it to the greased baking tray.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the pastry is crisp and golden brown.
- Leave the strudel to cool down slightly. Dust with a light sprinkle of stevia and serve with a little fat free, sugar free vanilla ice cream or a dollop of fat free Greek yogurt.
