LOVE, LOVE, LOVE me some apples. And, Apple Crisp is fabulous alternative to apple pie. Awesome. Amazing.
And healthy, right? Sure… it has butter. And sugar. But, if I’m getting oats and fruit… it’s all good in my book. I mean, hey… it is dessert, right?
I love making up easy to follow recipes, because I don’t like a lot of steps when I’m cooking, and I like to keep things simple for you as well. This recipe has basic directions that make this recipe as quick as snapping your fingers.
Okay… not quite that fast, but you get the idea.
First: Peel and slice apples, toss them with lemon juice and stir together with granulated sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Next, in a separate bowl mix together oats, brown sugar, and butter. Yum!
Simple ingredients make a delightful dessert. If you haven’t had Apple Crisp, you are seriously missing out. This is the good stuff. Pair it with vanilla ice cream (because you know that goes with so many things, like my Blueberry Tart or Hot Peanut Butter Fudge Sauce) and you’ll truly enjoy it.
Put all the ingredients in a square baking dish, or make individual servings like I did. The ramekin dishes pictured above are perfect for 1 1/2 cups of dessert delight. First I filled them with the sweet, sugary apples. Then I topped the apples with oats. Simple as that.
Layer on a scoop of vanilla and you’re set for a bite of pure goodness. It’s hard to resist. So don’t.
