There’s very few fall desserts better than Apple Crisp! There are so many ways you can make it, but I like to just wing it so I can make a healthier version. I guess you can call it “guilt-free” because I still use some regular sugar and light brown sugar, but I just use much less of it. I also skip the flour. I just don’t feel it’s necessary in a healthy dessert.
Oh, and I try to take it easy on the butter, too!
Ingredients: (serves 2 to 3 people)
- 3 apples, cored and skinless (I recommend a mix of varieties – 1 green and 2 red)
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Slice the apples into small, thin wedges and place into a bowl. They don’t have to be any certain size – it doesn’t have to be perfect. Place the slices into a bowl and cover with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon. Mix thoroughly. Pour the apples into a baking dish.
In a separate dish, combine the oats and the brown sugar and pour over the melted butter. Stir thoroughly, then press down into make a more condensed mixture. Sprinkle the crumble mixture on top of the apples.
Bake in the oven for about 30-40 minutes until the apples are very tender.
