It is possible to estimate the calories burned in  abdominal crunches by using the MET data (Metabolic Equivalent of Task).
But weight is required in order to calculate calories burned.
I use Met Calculations for the following activity: calisthenics (e.g., situps, abdominal crunches), light effort (MET= 2.8).
Calories are per 1 hour of activity(same for male or female).
50 kg (man/woman) = 140 calories.
55 kg (man/woman) = 168 calories.
60 kg (man/woman) = 168 calories.
65 kg (man/woman) = 182 calories.
70 kg (man/woman) = 196 calories.
75 kg (man/woman) = 210 calories.
80 kg (man/woman) = 224 calories.
85 kg (man/woman) = 238 calories.
90 kg (man/woman) = 252 calories.
95 kg (man/woman) = 266 calories.
100 kg (man/woman) = 280 calories.
