Apple Crisp is a favourite around here. Its sweet, tart, warm, and comforting especially during the cooler months. However, this is definitely considered a treat and we do not eat it very often. I find that it makes it all the more special when we do 🙂
I like to use Granny Smith apples for their deliciously tart taste which contrasts nicely with the sweetness of the oat crumble. Granny Smith apples also hold their shape quite well during baking. They turn soft but not mushy. If you prefer another variety of apple, or even another fruit, you can substitute that instead.
Apple Crisp RECIPE
- 8 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- juice of half a lemon
- 1 tsp cinnamon or pumpkin pie seasoning
- 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup of whole-wheat flour
- half cup of brown sugar
- half cup of melted, salted butter
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a casserole dish with butter, and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine the chopped apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, and sugar. Set aside.
- In another bowl, combine the oats, flour, cinnamon, and sugar. Pour in the melted butter and combine until the mixture starts to crumble.
- Layer the apple mixture evenly on the bottom. Sprinkle the oat mixture on top of the apples.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until top is browned and apple mixture is bubbling.
- Serve warm with ice-cream.
- Other fruits work well in this recipe too.
