Best Apples for Apple Crisp
The type of apple you choose will greatly affect the texture of the finished crisp. Firmer apples are ideal for baking. And for the best flavor, use a combination of sweet and tart apples.
Granny Smith is the best choice. Its tartness holds up against the sweetness of the crisp topping, and they always bake up tender but not mushy. For sweet apples, Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, or Fuji are good options.
You only need a handful of ingredients to get started:
- old-fashioned oats
- almond flour
- coconut flakes
- coconut oil
- kosher salt
How to Make Apple Crisp
Prepare the apples: In a large bowl, toss the sliced apples with cinnamon until evenly coated. Then add honey and toss to combine.
Cut a tablespoon of butter into small cubes and scatter on a bottom of a square baking dish. Spread the apples on the bottom of the dish.
Make the topping: In the same bowl, combine the oats, flour, walnuts, coconut flakes, cinnamon, and salt. Add coconut oil and honey, and stir until combined.
Spread the oat mixture over the apples. Scatter cubed butter over the topping. Bake 35-45 minutes or until apples are soft and topping lightly golden brown. Rest 15-20 minutes before serving.
Leftovers: Store leftover crisp in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, covered.
Reheating: Reheat leftover crisp, covered, in the oven at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes.

Getting away from refined sugars and as friends own a wonderful Apiary , Similkameen Valley honey is always available . Great recipe Katya , thank you . Tomorrow morning though I am going to modify it and build an apple and pear crisp , same ing. and process though . It’s Fall and need to create variety . You’ll always get the credit though for the foundation on which I build with this recipe .
I hope you enjoy it Gary!
We did Katya , the pears add a whole new dimension to the traditional apple crisp . Nothing else changes in the recipe except the addition of pears . Have I got you wondering ?
This was absolutely delicious. I was trying to find an Almond flour apple crisp one and all of them were not sweet enough to curb my sweet tooth. This one was a perfect amount of sweet and healthy.
Thank you SO much Melissa! So awesome that you loved it and I appreciate your feedback.
Hi Katya, thank you for such a wonderful healthy fall recipe. I have made this twice already. It was delicious.
