Easy Apple Crisp

This apple crisp recipe includes perfectly tender chunks of apples with cinnamon and a delicious oat-based crisp topping that gets so beautifully golden. Top with vanilla ice cream, always.
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 35 mins
Total time: 50 mins
Yield: 4 servings


For the apple filling:

  • 6 granny smith apples
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

For the crisp topping:

  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter cold


  • Preheat your oven to 350℉.
  •  Peel and cut your apples into 1" pieces. Add them to a bowl with the cinnamon, lemon juice, and sugar. Mix to combine and set aside. 
  • In a separate bowl, combine all ingredients for the topping except the butter - light brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. 
  • Cube the butter then add to the topping bowl. With your hands or a pastry cutter, work the butter into the mixture until you get coarse pieces. 
  • Add your apples into your baking dish and top with the oat mixture. If you want bigger crisp pieces, clump together some of the topping as you're pouring it on. 
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes, until nice and golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream!
