Sorry y’all-I’m in full fall mode. The weather here in Georgia maxed out in the upper 70s the last few days which is super cool for this time of year so I’m telling myself it’s okay to post everything apple and pumpkins for the next few months-okay with you? I was wondering what kind of recipe to post for you all this week when I realized that the fruit bowl on my kitchen table was overflowing with apples (sidenote-why do my kids always want whatever type of fruit I DON’T have in the house but then when I stock up they ignore it??) Since the kiddos weren’t eating them raw I certainly couldn’t let them go to waste so I whipped up this super easy, classic Apple Crisp recipe. Only six ingredients and ready in less than an hour start to finish!
I’ve shared other versions of this recipe before (like my peanut butter apple crisp) but I guess it never occurred to me to share the very basic apple crisp they were built off of because it’s so easy. But then I rethought it and realized that sometimes those are the very best recipes to share-the super back-to-basics ones just like your grandparents would have made. Are you ready?Print
A classic autumn recipe-this 6 ingredient Apple Crisp with crispy oat topping is easy to make and on the table in less than an hour!
6 apples – your favorite variety
2.5 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2/3 cup all purpose flour
2 cups quick oats
1 cup light brown sugar
9 tablespoons (1 stick + 1 tablespoon) butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9 by 13″ baking dish with nonstick spray.
Core apples and slice thinly-you may peel if desired, I leave the skin on mine.
Place the apples and cinnamon in a large bowl and stir to evenly coat. Pour apples into prepared pan.
Mix flour, oats and brown sugar in the large bowl. Stir in butter and mix until uniform.
Pour oat mixture evenly over apples.
Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream if desired.
There are not many things better in life than eating this apple crisp hot out of the oven with melting vanilla ice cream-my mouth is watering just typing it!
