Apple crisp is a delicious, old-fashioned dessert that almost everyone loves. This recipe takes seasonal apples, adds a crispy topping, then finishes it all off with a drizzle of caramel.
HOW TO MAKE APPLE CRISP – THE BEST RECIPE!!
This is the ULTIMATE Apple Crisp Recipe and is so SIMPLE to prepare! I show you exactly how to make it and give you some REAL FOOD TALK so you can pick the right ingredients to make it nourishing for you and your family.
BEST APPLE CRISP VIDEO
I’m going to keep it honest here—no other apple crisp recipe can even TOUCH this one.
It’s sweet, yet balanced with the perfect amount of salt and tanginess from the lemon (which you can’t taste on their own really because they simply act to really draw out all the flavors of the apple crisp). It’s rich and caramel-y (I mean, look at it. You can see that.) The crispy crumble is beautifully crisp and totally delicious, and it contrasts the soft, luscious apples just perfectly.
With a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream, you’re set with the best dessert. I mean it when I call this the BEST apple crisp recipe ever. It’s my favorite dessert this season and I cannot stop making it over and over again.
And what’s better than a dessert that is so freaking tasty than one that is so freaking tasty AND EASY AS CAN BE?!
It’s much easier than apple pie and it’s way better in my opinion—the flavors, the textures, the richness, the simplicity! Just better.
REAL FOOD TALK – HOW TO PICK THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS FOR THIS APPLE CRISP RECIPE
Most flour you buy is “enriched” or “fortified” with vitamins that are nothing more than potentially very harmful ingredients that are added into your flour. It’s not natural and it’s not safe. It’s just a marketing tool to trick you into buying something you think is healthy.
Meanwhile, these ingredients wreak havoc on your system and even worse, are fed to children whose systems aren’t meant to handle these unnatural additives in unnatural levels. Children who are fed foods with added vitamins are at an increased risk for toxicity
And unfortunately, the FDA doesn’t regulate supplements as drugs even though they affect your body and health. And not in a good way.
Contrary to dogma and popular belief, you can absolutely overdose from too much of these added vitamins and minerals. They can cause liver and nervous system damage There’s also no benefit when it comes to prevention of cancer or cardiovascular disease And they have even been shown to actually increase the rate of cancer and mortality
If you’re already eating a variety of meats, fruits, and vegetables then you don’t need supplements/added vitamins in your diet. And if you’re not already eating this variety of food, then start eating variety to get vitamins in the natural and healthy way. I totally believe shortcuts when it comes to health have led to all our health issues.
So just eat real food.
When buying any packaged food or flours, make sure that there are no added vitamins in the ingredients list. Usually organic flour will not contain added vitamins and it has the added benefit of not having any pesticides and herbicides.
That brings me to the apples. Make sure they’re organic to avoid glyphosate that’s in herbicides. Herbicides and pesticides work by damaging living organisms and rinsing fruit that’s sprayed with them will not protect you because these chemicals are in the soil and make their way into the plants.
Organic means normal and natural. Spraying plants with harmful chemicals is the unnatural fad.
As for butter, I recommend grass-fed because the cows that make this butter are eating what’s natural to them as they graze free on pastures. And don’t be wary of eating butter. Butter is a health food.

What apples do I use for this easy apple crisp
Simply put, you can use any apples that you like! My personal favorite for this recipe is the golden delicious variety, but Granny Smith or Fugi are some other great varieties.
To peel, or not to peel
It’s 100% up to you! I’ve made this recipe both ways, and I like them both equally. Generally, when I make this easy apple crisp, I’m making it for my family, and my kids wouldn’t eat it with the skins on, so I peel them more often than not. I’m sure this goes without saying, but if you choose to leave the skins on, be sure to wash the apples thoroughly
