This Easy Apple Crisp is a classic old-fashioned dessert that makes you feel all warm and cozy! Made with fresh cinnamon apples and a crunchy oat topping, all you need is a scoop of vanilla ice cream to complete this crowd-favorite treat.


For the Crisp Topping

  • 1/2 cup (65g) all purpose flour
  • 1 cup (90g) old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup (168g) packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes

For the Apple Filling

  • 5 cups (595g) thinly sliced granny smith apples (from about 4 large peeled and cored apples)
  • 1/4 cup (56g) packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp (16g) all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Add all of the ingredients for the topping, except for the butter, to a medium-sized bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Add the cold butter and use a pastry cutter or fork to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture is crumbly and comes together. Set aside.
  4. Combine all the ingredients for the apples and stir together so that the apples are well coated, then pour the mixture into an 8 or 9 inch square dish.
  5. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples.
  6. Bake for about 40 minutes, until the topping is golden around the edges and the apples are tender. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes prior to serving.
