Sometimes there is just nothing better than a good old fashioned dessert like Apple Crisp. It’s sweet, creamy, apple-y and cinnamon-y. Yes. Please. And I will eat it for breakfast too. But only after the kids are in school so that I don’t have to share…oops, did I say that out loud?  😉

Crisps are my go to dessert. 

They’re easy to make and they are so versatile…you can use any fruit you have around for crisps…apples, peachesrhubarb. In fact, the ripe fruit that no one wants to eat is perfect for putting into crisps.

Tastes like apple pie.

Apple crisp is definitely our favourite kind of fruit crips…soft baked apples with a buttery warm cinnamon oat topping. So good. It tastes like an apple pie only it’s much easier to make…it really is the best apple crisp recipe.

Apple Crisp Recipe Tips

  • APPLES: Granny Smith apples or Honeycrisp apples are great (tart apples are perfect). But I think MacIntosh apples are the best apples for crisps.
  • TO PEEL OR NOT TO PEEL: This is completely a personal choice. I’ve done both, but peeled apples are our favourite.
  • OPTIONAL ADDITIONS: For extra nutrition you can add chopped nuts like pecans, hemp hearts or wheat germ to your crumble topping mixture (before baking).
  • SERVING: This recipe can be served warm or cold. And with cream, whip cream or ice cream!
  • SERVING SUGGESTION: This is the perfect dessert to go with Roasted Chicken!

  4. While the apple mix is resting, in a separate bowl combine the flour, oats, salt and sugar.
  5. Pour the melted butter over the oat mix, and stir to combine.
  6. Transfer the apple mix to an oven safe baking dish (a 1.6 L casserole dish works great).
