BEST APPLES FOR APPLE CRISP
The type of apple you choose will greatly affect the texture of the finished crisp. Firmer apples are ideal for baking. And for the best flavor, use a combination of sweet and tart apples.
Granny Smith is the best choice. Its tartness holds up against the sweetness of the crisp topping, and they always bake up tender but not mushy. For sweet apples, Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, or Fuji are good options.
HONEY APPLE CRISP INGREDIENTS
You only need a handful of ingredients to get started:
- old-fashioned oats
- almond flour
- coconut flakes
- coconut oil
- kosher salt
HOW TO MAKE APPLE CRISP
Prepare the apples: In a large bowl, toss the sliced apples with cinnamon until evenly coated. Then add honey and toss to combine.
Cut a tablespoon of butter into small cubes and scatter on a bottom of a square baking dish. Spread the apples on the bottom of the dish.
Make the topping: In the same bowl, combine the oats, flour, walnuts, coconut flakes, cinnamon, and salt. Add coconut oil and honey, and stir until combined.
Spread the oat mixture over the apples. Scatter cubed butter over the topping. Bake 35-45 minutes or until apples are soft and topping lightly golden brown. Rest 15-20 minutes before serving.

For the Apples
- 6 medium or large granny smith apples (pink lady, honey crisp, and other crisp apples also work well)
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons water
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
For the Crumble Topping
- 1 cup old-fashioned or quick oats

- 1/2 cup chopped almonds, walnuts, or pecans
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or butter
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel apples and dice into cubes of approximately equal size.
- In a large bowl, toss the apples with maple syrup, water, and cinnamon. Pour apples into greased 9×9 or 8×8 inch baking dish.
- In the same (now empty) bowl, add oats, almond flour, nuts, cinnamon, salt, coconut oil or butter, and maple syrup. Stir crumble topping together and pour into baking dish on top of apples.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes until apples are soft, covering pan loosely with aluminum foil halfway through to prevent over-browning. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
6 medium or large apples is equivalent to about 2 – 2 1/2 pounds of apples.
Things I Used: organic cinnamon, organic coconut oil (great value!), and apple corer/slicer.
I have this handy dandy apple peeler/corer/slicer that’s a total game changer when it comes to apple desserts. It easily cuts the apple prep down to 5-10 minutes max, and all of the pieces are a uniform size for even baking. LOVE this thing.
