No wonder I haven't had the need to visit the doctor's. Just look at the amount of apples I consume! I know I've been posting alot about apples and I can't help it. They are truly such versatile fruits and they make such great desserts, oh, plus they pack a punch despite being low in calories.
I'm forever scouting around cyberspace, checking out worthy recipes and I got excited when I chanced upon an Apple Crisp recipe. Maybe I'm currently in an apple phase, so it jumped straight out at me. I just had dinner and was actually craving for something sweet and light. This Apple Crisp clearly looked like it could make me rather happy. So I made it.
It's pretty easy. It's just sliced apples with a oatey topping:
Totally digged the fact that it called for cinnamon. Love that spice. Anyone can make this recipe with their eyes closed. It's not much different from my previous attempts at Apple Crumble and Apple Cobbler. They're all actually the same, save for the different toppings required.
So there you have it, a fast, easy & light dessert that's not going to make you guilty at all.
All this Apple Crisp talk just triggered a sudden craving for apple chips. Oh man.... I want some now! I wonder if I can get apple crisps just by baking sliced apples? Nah, there's too much water content - it'll just get soggy, won't it? I should get myself one of those dehydrator contraptions. Apparently you can make dry fruit and keep them as snacks... Anyone has one? I'm pretty curious...
Container: 9 x 11 baking dish
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
- 6 cups sliced Granny Smith apples (approx. 6 med.)
- 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
- 3/4 cup flour
- 3/4 cup quick oats
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Butter the bottom and sides of the baking dish.
Place the sliced apples in the bottom of the baking dish and spread out evenly.
Combine all the remaining ingredients together in another bowl and mix until well blended. The mixture should have a crumbly texture.
Sprinkle the crumbly mixture evenly over the apples. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until apples are tender when poked and the topping is golden brown and crispy.
Remove from the oven and serve while warm. Serve with a scoop of ice cream for an extra delicious treat
