A Lighter Apple Crisp Recipe

45 Minutes

8 Servings


Swapping out some of the sugar with maple syrup and blending in rolled oats makes this apple crisp recipe less heavy without losing all the delicious taste. Going a step further and replacing the standard vanilla ice cream with a dollop of vanilla yogurt keeps that trend going.

A Lighter Apple Crisp Recipe


  • In a dry mixing bowl, add the flour, oats, 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and brown sugar, and blend with a spoon before adding the butter. Using your hands, gently combine by rubbing the ingredients together with your fingertips until you have the texture of wet sand.

  • Add the pecans, if you are using them, by stirring them in with a spoon. And then set aside while you prepare the apples.

  • Combine the apples, remaining cinnamon, and maple syrup and stir until the apples are fully coated with the blend. And then pour into a baking pan, arranging them flat across the base.  Then top with the dry mixture, using your hands to pat it down. Bake at 375F for 40-50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.  Serve warm with a dollop of vanilla yogurt.
