I never review recipes but I couldn't let this one go without. I had a crazy amount of apples from my nanas trees and was apple buttered right to death so I decided to switch it up for this apple crisp. I made a pan for both my mother and mother in law (who is an amazing cook) and my mother in law lost her mind when she tasted it. Its all she could talk about all day. I used brown sugar instead of white and doubled the cinnamon. Hands down best apple crisp ever!
I thought this applecrisp was delicious, can't even tell it's healthier. I even substituted two tablespoons of the butter with water and it was still really good.
We loved this!!! I didn't have whole wheat flour or walnuts, so I improvised with regular flour and pecans. It was wonderful!!!!!!! Definitely going to have this again!
Oh wow! Best apple crisp ever! I made it as written first time and it was good, but the second time, it was even better when I made these changes: I omitted the white sugar and subbed in brown sugar, doubled the cinnamon, added some ginger (a healthy dash) and some nutmeg (a regular dash). I also omitted the water, it was not necessary and my second batch without the water was a much, much better consistency. (The apples are juicy and release that juice when baked, so go ahead and skip adding that water.) Oh, and in both batches, I used old-fashioned oats, not the quick cooking kind and I subbed corn starch for the flour in the filling, something I always do for fruit pies, cobblers, etc... :-)
Wonderful! The only substitution I made was pecans vs walnuts and doubled the cinnamon based on other reviews. I also lightened it up just a little bit more by using the brown sugar splenda and the domino light sugar. I also used a hint of lemon juice. Highly recommend!
Smells delicious, like apple pie! Made 2 pans for healthy potlucks @ husband's & my work. Used 10 large honeycrisp apples, 5. lbs, from local farmer, for each 9 x 13 recipe. It will fill the pan (with a rounded top like a cake), so press the topping on with a large spoon and put the pan on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Followed others' suggestions & added some of my own. Use apple corer/peeler, all brown sugar, all whole wheat fllour, old fashioned oats, 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. cloves, & 1/2 tsp. nutmeg. Stir 2 tsp. vanilla extract into melted butter. Wondered whether initial sugar/flour/water mixture would blend in better if it were stirred into apples rather than sprinkled on top. Next time (and there definitely will be a next time!) I would either omit water or add cornstarch or tapioca to water, since it was rather watery. Apples did not get mushy. Tasted great & husband's co-workers ate the entire pan! We were very busy & only had time for 1/2 a pan! It's a keeper!
This was a GREAT recipe! I added fresh blueberries and chia seeds for more of the "good stuff". Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
I confess, I’ll always be partial to my Aunt Audrey’s apple crisp, but this was very nice for a change. We served it warm with vanilla ice cream. Yum.
