This healthier apple crisp recipe is a delicious way to satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt. The trick is to load up on fruit and cut back on the butter and flour in a typical apple crisp recipe.
In fact, our version gets away with using no extra fat at all! Instead, a touch of maple syrup provides just the right amount of moisture for the oat and walnut topping to come together.
If you’re worried about your baking pan sticking, put 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.
Pro tip: For apple crisp “a la mode,” top 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.
