Only Easy: Apple Crisp

By: Misty I.

I made Apple Crisp for the Independence Day holiday weekend a few weeks back. It’s a crowd-pleaser and perfect served while still warm with some vanilla bean ice cream. Most importantly, it isn’t fussy. I don’t bother peeling (more fiber!) and cubing the apples. I simply wash the apples, core and slice thinly, only easy baby!

Only Easy Apple Crisp


Apple Filling:

  • 10 C. (about 3 lbs.) cheap apples ($5 from Costco or Walmart. See pic below of empty apple bag)
  • 1 C. white sugar
  • 1 T. flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ⅓ – ½ C. water


  • ½ C. butter, melted (I use salted)
  • 1 C. oats (old-fashioned, but “quick”will work too)
  • 1 C. flour
  • 1 C. brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the white sugar, 1 T. flour and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  3. Core and slice apples. Add to the sugar/flour/cinnamon mixture. Add water to the mixture and pour into a 9” x 13” pan.
  4. Melt the butter in another bowl. Add oats,1 C. flour, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Add to apples.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

That’s it, only easy!
