Breakfast Apple Crisp

It’s apple season. This  crisp was made from apples picked from my step-grandpa’s tree.

10-17-13 Apple Crisp ResizeThe only sweetener that’s supposed to be used in this recipe is the natural sugar in the fruit and real, 100% maple syrup. I’d recommend using golden delicious or another sweet apple, and not granny smith or unripe, sour apples. And, although I only had sweetened applesauce, I recommend unsweetened. This is meant to be a healthy breakfast recipe, and is not too sweet.


  • 2-3 cups apples, peeled, cored, and sliced thin
  • 1/4-1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup
  • I also used about 2 dashes of cinnamon, but may I recommend cardamom instead?
  • non-stick cooking spray or oil (for greasing pan) (May I recommend coconut oil?)

To Make:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Lightly grease a standard sized pie pan.
  3. Place sliced apples in the pie pan.
  4. Pour applesauce over the apples.
  5. Add a dash of cinnamon or other spice/herb (if using).
  6. Mix, if desired, to distribute applesauce and cinnamon or other spice/herb (if using).
  7. In a small mixing bowl, or right in your measuring cup (if you’re using one bigger than a cup), pour maple syrup over oats.
  8. Add a dash of cinnamon or similar spice/herb (if using).
  9. Mix thoroughly. I used my fingers. If you do, thoroughly wash your hands first. A spoon may also work. You want the oats to be just barely wet by the syrup.
  10. Pour oats over apples. Try to distribute evenly. Spread them around if necessary to cover the top of the crisp.
  11. Bake at 400 for 30-45 minutes, checking first at 30. Oats should be golden brown, but not burned, and applesauce or apples may be bubbling, if you used the full 1/2 cup. I used about 1/4 a cup, and so did not have enough applesauce to notice any bubbling, but I think I remember it bubbling for my last crisp. Exposed apples may be a golden or dark brown.
