  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place the flour, rolled oats, coconut, 1/4 cup of white sugar, 1/4 cup of light brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and butter into the work bowl of a food processor. Pulse several times to make a mixture that looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in the walnuts.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the apples, 1/4 cup of white sugar, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, tapioca, vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg until well combined. Pour the filling into the prepared pie dish; spread the topping evenly over the filling.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the apple crisp is bubbling and golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes.


  • Cook's Note
  • Use an 8x8-inch baking dish if you prefer; use a 9x13-inch baking dish if doubling the recipe.

A Bit too sweet, but the topping is marvelous and it turned out wonderful. I will just reduce the sugar used next time. Gret recipe!

This is utterly DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe just a *tiny* bit too sweet, but that can be easily remedied! :) I would definitely make again!!

This really was good. I did make a couple changes just out of necessity (didn't have any coconut and we have a slight walnut allergy in this family). I also did not measure the apples, and inste...
