There’s nothing quite like the smell of apples and cinnamon coming out of your oven on a crisp, fall day. This easy apple crisp recipe is a perfect fall dessert, when apples are in season.
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, plus oats are high in fiber, magnesium and antioxidants, so this dessert is actually good for you!
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.
