Units Scale

Apple Mixture

  • 5 medium/large apples peeled and diced (I used 3 Granny Smith and 2 Honeycrisp)
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg

Crisp Topping

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, cold

Optional Toppings:

  • Vanilla Ice Cream or
  • Whipped Cream


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a Dutch oven pot or casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Next, peel and dice apples into bite sized pieces. Place diced apples in a large mixing bowl and combine with lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix until evenly coated and pour into sprayed dutch oven.
  • Using the same bowl as before, stir together oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and flour and mix until evenly combined.
  • Next add in the cold butter and use a pastry cutter to fold it in the mixture until the butter is pea-sized lumps and the mixture is evenly combined. Sprinkle the crisp topping evenly over the apples.
  • Bake in the oven for 45-55 minutes or until it is golden brown and crispy.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
