Apple Crisp

This healthier Apple Crisp can be a delicious way to satisfy your sweet tooth without guilt. The trick to a healthier crisp is to load up on fruit and cut back on the butter and processed flour that typically squeezes its way into this innocent-looking dish. In fact, our version gets away with using no extra fat at all! Rather, the recipe calls for a touch of maple syrup to provide just the right amount of moisture for the oat and walnut topping to come together.

If you’re worried about your baking pan sticking, then you can put down a piece of parchment paper before piling in the apples. You’ll know your crumble is done when it develops a golden brown crust on top. Depending on the position of your oven racks, baking time can vary slightly, so start to keep an eye on it after twenty minutes.

For a healthier Apple Crisp “a la mode”, you could try topping it with a scoop of vanilla (or plain) Greek yogurt. The nutritional information would vary with this addition, so make sure you factor that in.

This authentic savory apple crisp dessert features the rich flavor of baked apples, walnuts, oats, and a touch of maple syrup.
