Apple Crisp with Oats

Winter’s arrival is not just a chill in the air; it’s also an invitation to embrace the warmth of delightful treats. Join me, Himanshi, on a culinary escapade with my signature creation – the Apple Crisp with Oats. This dessert is a perfect synthesis of flavors and health, with the goodness of apples taking center stage.


1. 4 medium-sized apples, peeled and sliced
2. 1/2 cup brown sugar
3. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4. 1/4 cup water
5. 1 cup oats (rolled or quick oats)
6. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
7. 1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature or melted)
8. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
9. 1/4 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat the Oven:

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).

2. Prepare the Apples:

In a large bowl, combine the peeled and sliced apples with brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and water. Ensure the apples are thoroughly coated, and set them aside.

3. Prepare the Crisp Topping:

In a separate bowl, mix oats, flour, butter, granulated sugar, and salt. Use your hands to create a crumbly texture – this is your crisp topping.

4. Assemble the Recipe:

Place the prepared apples in an oven-safe dish and evenly sprinkle the crisp topping over them, forming a delicious layer.

5. Bake:

Bake the dish in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the topping turns golden and crispy.

6. Serving:

Serve the Apple Crisp with Oats warm, and for an added treat, pair it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
