Y’all know I love apple pie, but I might love this Very Easy Apple Crisp even more. While a good homemade pie crust is delicious, this sweet buttery topping with ground almonds and old-fashioned oats is divine.
This recipe is wonderfully flexible too. I’ve designed it so you can adjust the sugar, change up the flour (gluten free, all purpose, or whole wheat), and decide how much crisp topping to use (with instructions for freezing the extra). So make this recipe exactly how YOU like it, and enjoy a warm scoop of apple crisp as a dessert with vanilla ice cream, as an afternoon snack with a hot cuppa, or even as breakfast on a cold morning.
For the apples, you can use your favorite baking apples. Some of my favorites include Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Honey Crisp, and Pink Lady. For variety of both flavor and texture, try using two or more different apples. And for an extra pop of color, I like to leave the apples unpeeled, letting that bright red or green skin show through.
Plus, this recipe works just as well with other fruits! I’ve used the same topping for frozen blueberries, sliced peaches, cubed pear, or even mashed sweet potato! For a full video tutorial, hop over to my YouTube Channel, Marie’s Kitchen.
