  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  • Add the peeled and cubed apples to a mixing bowl and add in the sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, lemon juice and vanilla. Toss together until the apples are well coated.
  • Transfer the apples to the prepared baking dish and smooth down evenly.
  • Prepare your topping. Add the flour, rolled oats, sugar and cinnamon to a mixing bowl and mix together. Add in the melted butter and vanilla and mix until well mixed.
  • Crumble the topping with your fingers over the top of the apples, spreading it in an even layer over the top of the apples.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 50 minutes until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbling up the sides.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the counter for around 10 minutes before serving with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.



*Granny Smith apples are the best apples to use for this as they are tart but sweet and hold their shape well in baking. However, you can really use any kind of apple for this so if you can't get Granny Smith apples easily, other apples will also do fine.  We use 8 cups of peeled and chopped apples which also equates to 1 kg or 2.2 pounds. 
*Leftovers will keep in the fridge for around 5 days. Reheat a slice as needed in the microwave and top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. 
*MAKE IT DAIRY FREE: Use a dairy free butter like Earth Balance or a dairy free margarine to easily make this dairy-free. Serve with dairy free whipped cream or ice cream. 
*MAKE IT GLUTEN FREE: Use a gluten free all purpose baking flour like Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Baking Flour to replace the regular flour in this recipe. Also make sure to use gluten-free rolled oats. 
*Nutritional information is for apple crisp only and does not include ice cream.
