This Cinnamon Apple Crisp is perfect for fall, lightly sweetened with raisins and honey with a crisp, oat topping.

My favorite desserts are crisps, cobblers and pie. Apple crisps are the easiest of them all, because the oat topping is simple. Some apple crisp recipes don’t use oats, which is totally fine. But I love the crisp oat topping, because they are high in fiber, magnesium and antioxidants.

Best way to eat an apple crisp, in my opinion is warm topped with a very small scoop (about 1/4 cup) of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt, if you desire (my favorite way to eat it!). It’s totally optional, and will add more calories.

Which apples are best for apple crisp?

Best answer, any apple you like! I personally like to use sweeter apples so I don’t have to add too much sugar such as Honey Crisp or Gala.

How long is apple crisp good for?

You can store apple crisp room temperature for 1 to 2 days, refrigerated for up to 1 week, or frozen for 3 to 4 months. When refrigerated, you can eat it cold or pop it back in the oven set very, very low or in the microwave to get the chill out.

Variations and Tips

  • If you’re not a fan of raisins, you can omit them.
  • To make it dairy free, sub the butter for coconut oil.

  1. I have made this twice using a 9″x13″ pan. The second time I made it using more topping (1.5 times). Both times I used craisins (dried cranberries) instead of raisins (I did not have any raisins). It was very good.

  2. This was easy to make, and so delicious! After reading some reviews I kept an eye on the topping and pulled it out of the oven after 45 min. Thank you for another amazing recipe

  3. So easy to make and excellent!

  4. Delicious recipe … a real crowd pleaser! 
    I like to add a half cup of nonfat plain Greek yogurt on top of it to add some protein – it is such a filling, satisfying dessert or even a breakfast! 
    Five star recipe 

  5. Extremely easy to make and so so delicious. I love how your house smells with the cinnamon apples I the oven

  6. Do you think I could sub maple syrup for honey? 🤔 

  7. Delicious! I used vegan butter, and used a little bit less honey than called for in the apple mixture and it was still perfect.

    One note – I used an 8×11 inch pan and the cobbler was pretty thin (for me and my husband, this was 4 perfect portions – 8 as called out would have been a stretch and not enough in my opinion). Next time, I plan to use a few more apples with the same amount of topping to make closer to 6-8 servings.

  8. Absolutely delicious. Another family fav to add to my recipe binder.

  9. I literally have made this every weekend for 3 weeks now love it!

  10. Can I use steel cut oats?

  11. Can I freeze the filling? Any changes?

  12. This was so incredibly delicious and a breeze to make. I definitely will make this again. The added bonus is my kitchen smells amazing while baking this and for a little bit after. 

  13. I made this today and it was fabulous :). I used Jonathan apples and omitted the raisins.  I couldn’t stop eating it. It was very easy as well which was great. 

  14. You may want to include a suggested size baking pan or dish with your recipes.  Cooking times will vary considerably between an 8×8, 9×12, Etc.   Especially for a crisp which is best with a crisp not burnt or soggy topping and cooked filling. 

  15. I think the points value for the Purple Plan should be 5. This sounds delicious! Thank you for all your hard work, Gina!

  16. Wonderful dessert and makes the house smell so good too. Had Stayman Winesap apples which are one of my favorite, added 1 cup fresh cranberries and all else as listed but skipped the cornstarch. It was wonderful. Holiday worthy.

  17. Can I use regular oats instead of quick oats?
