This healthier apple oatmeal crisp is a lighter, lower carb, lower fat version of traditional apple crisp but with all the flavor and deliciousness.
This is a super easy way to use Granny Smith apples to make a natural, semi-healthy dessert. It uses much less sugar and butter than this decadent skillet apple crisp, so I consider it the lighter version:-)
The apples don’t have to be cooked down before baking if they are cut into very small pieces. I use a few handy tools to make the prep quick & easy:
- Peel apples with a good vegetable peeler.
- Core and slice quickly using an easy grip apple slicer.
- Cut slices into small, bite size pieces. I did this my with my new favorite chef’s knife.
Note: I always use Granny Smith apples for this crisp, as they hold their shape and have a nice tartness to balance the sweet. Two other varieties that are good for baking are Rome and Fuji.
Once the apples are prepped, the rest is a snap. This crisp can be made several hours ahead and kept in a warm oven. Ice cream makes it super yummy:-)
