Reviews for Apple Crisp with Oat Topping
Most successful apple crisp I have made. Used Granny Smiths to balance the sweetness. My roommates loved it!
Amazing! I cooked it about 10 minutes longer because the apples were still hard when I tested with a toothpick. It was super easy and came out delicious! I will definitely make this again!
This is a very good recipe and has the right ingredients. I will definitely use this as my go to apple crisp recipe in the future!
Made this tonight with Gala apples, was a HIT. I did not change a thing and it turned out really good. Top was crisp but not dry...very easy and tasty.
Made exactly as written with the addition of a little nutmeg and a couple of tablespoons of melted butter on the bottom of the pan, per other reviewers recommendations. This is not your average apple crisp! My husband and I were in heaven eating this hot out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I am making again tomorrow to take to a potluck where my desserts are always legendary. This is a great recipe, thanks for sharing it.
I made this for my boyfriend for the first time he loves it!!! I up the oat meal it's the only way I can get the boys to eat health stuff is if they think it's candy lol
Using Granny Smith apples, and 5T of butter as one other reviewer suggested, this was excellent and very simple!
This is a great and simple recipe everyone I made it for has loved it. I have not had any complaints, not even from very picky child I know.
I made this with 6 cups of canned unsweetened apples and it turned out great! Perfect sweetness and my kids were begging for more!
This was an awesome recipe! I just made it tonight and had to come back and leave a review! It was just the perfect amount of sweet!! I served it with some vanilla bean ice cream!!! MMMMM!!!! It was perfect just the way the recipe says!!
I followed this recipe exactly except could only fit 4 apples into my dish. It turned out pretty tasty.
Great flavor. We made it using some apples from our tree. I added walnuts chopped then just crumbled on top before placing in the oven.
This was great. Light and crispy, not chewy like the others I have made. I used sour apples and next time I will use sweeter ones, but this recipie was easy and great tasting!
This was good but it serves maybe 12 people. The recipe says it serves 4.
This is an awesome recipe... reminiscent of my mother's all those years ago. I love that there is plenty of crisp topping to go with the apples, unlike many recipes. And if you leave it uncovered the first 12 hours after baking, it'll stay nice and crisp for the duration.
Will make again for sure, turned out perfect!
This is my favorite "crisp" recipe! I have used many kinds of fruit with the toppings. So easy to whip together and great served with some vanilla ice cream!
Its just ok. I followed recipe exactly. It is dry and its not very sweet. I tried this recipe since it called for 1 cup of brown sugar whereas other called for 1 cup sugar and 1 cup brown sugar.
Excellent...........I used paula red apples. Won't change a thing!!
A favorite in our house.
Incredible and simple. Not too sweet like some of the other recipes I've tried. I will however make more of the topping or use less apples next time, because I thought the ratio of apples to topping was not completely to my taste.
Topping is not real crunchy but still delicious.
Very rich and flavorful
This recipe is great just the way it is listed. Add some pecans to the topping mixture for added nut flavor. Don't forget the ice cream and carmel for a truly rich dessert.
So easy, yet so good! I made this for a dinner party a month ago and it was a hit. Making it again for Thanksgiving. The topping and 6 large granny smiths make enough for a 9x13. Can be served with or without cream / whipped cream / ice cream --- it's that good!
This recipe was just awesome. I made it just as described, and everyone I've given it to has raved (even the dessert haters). I will definitely be making this over and over. It's a keeper!
I just use the crisp recipe to put on my pies. I use gluten free oats and make sure i burn them just a little bit.
Wonderful! I used granny smith apples; I cut the apples the day before and added some lemon juice to keep them fresh. Otherwise I kept the recipe the same. The crisp topping is perfect and all goes quite well with ice cream :)
Simple and delicious! I added raisins to it, and it was great.
I have made this dessert many times and it is the best. The topping is crunchy and the apples aren't too sweet. The topping is also great on blueberries and peaches. I make the crisp exactly as written, usually with honey crisp apples.
Delicious and easy to throw together.....just a perfect fall dessert.
Made it for the in-laws, it was super good. Next time I might add walnuts to the topping but I love walnuts in just about everything!
I have this same recipe from my Mother-in-Law. Great and easy. I usually don't peel the apples; use even more apples; sometimes add chopped toasted pecans to the topping and like to add chopped up candied ginger to the apples. If you do add the ginger, it helps to spray your knife with cooking spray and to slightly freeze the ginger before you try to chop it.
I tried it today and it turned out delicious!! I added a bit more cinnamon though just because we like more :)
Just popped it in the oven and all of it smelled so incredible!!! *Edit* I made this both with instant oatmeal (I was eager to try the recipe!) And with regular oats as called for. Both worked great, but the oats are preferred. Just know that in a pinch, instant oatmeal can be used. The picture is the crisp made with oats. ??
Hated it, there’s no reason to use cold butter and it doesn’t spread evenly. I’ve made this several times before with different recipes and had a much better result
This was excellent. I used 1/3 less brown sugar and it was still plenty sweet. A delicious breakfast.
Very good and very easy! I used 6 large apples...it filled the pan very full. I placed a cookie sheet under the pan as it baked and am I glad I did because it bubbled over in a most delicious way. Also, instead of tossing the apples with cinnamon, I subbed apple pie spice.
This is the best apple crisp and I finally found a crunchy crumb topping that is perfect!
I made this last week and it was delicious. If I did it again, I would probably add a little bit more of the oat/sugar mixture, as that was my favorite part. i used granny smith apples and served it with vanilla ice cream and it was a big hit.
My family loves this!! It is a fantastic fall desert??
Delicious! I used macintosh apples because they are my favorite & are in season! I followed the recipe exactly. Simple & easy - a must try!
My husband and I loved this recipe! My niece did too. Will definitely be making this again! It lasted a day and a half! I used Golden Delicious apples. Excellent! Thanks!
This was a BIG hit! I doubled the recipe for a 9x13 casserole dish which worked perfectly (with leftovers) to feed 6 kids under 8 and 4 adults. I used a mix of apples-golden delicious, a granny smith (we don't like our pies, etc tart but I had one on hand), and some red ones-don't remember what they're called but they're close to golden delicious in flavor. I also added some nutmeg to the apples per someone else's review. The top was totally crisp even when warming up leftovers. Excellent recipe and I highly recommend! The oats aren't overpowering so even people who aren't fans of oats would likely like them in this.
This is so easy to make and delicious. I served it at a dinner party and everyone loved it. I didn't have 6 apples so I used strawberries, blueberries and the one Honeycrisp apple that I had. I will make it again. This recipe is a keeper!
I lost my mom's apple crisp recipe, and was looking for something similar. This was perfect! I used a little less flour and a little more cinnamon, and mixed the apples with some of the topping instead of with white sugar - it turned out exactly how I remember apple crisp as a kid. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I love this recipe, it was very easy. The whole family loved it too. I used more cinnamon and it was great. I will definitely use this recipe again. The only 2 changes I would do is cut the apples into smaller chunks (I used BIG chunks) and I would like more of the crisp topping- it was delicious!
Made this over the weekend with fresh Macintosh apples straight from the orchard. It did NOT last long...and was awesome both straight from the oven and cool. Because my husband is a celiac, I substituted a gluten free flour mix for the flour...and it was perfect. The only change I might make in the future is to add some nutmeg to the sugar and cinnamon. Super simple...if it comes out of the oven a little runny...just let it sit a couple minutes. It will firm up.
I made a 9x13 inch pan of this by adding in two more large apples and doubling the crust part. It turned out really well, lasted less than 24 hours and I'll be doing it again soon :)
Just made this. So simple and so good. Hubby loved it too which is always a bonus. I used 3 types of apples; Jonagold, Granny Smith and Fuji and they worked out perfectly.
Excellent and easy
Just finished whipping this up for my mom and her boyfriend . Deeeelish! Will definitely be making this again!!
It was SO good! And so easy to make! I changed the flour to almond flour and the butter to olive oil for dietary reasons and it still turned out amazing! The change to olive oil could also make it vegan, if anyone is interested. This is my family's Apple Crumble from now on! I just made it for Thanksgiving (Canada) and can't wait to make it again. Thanks chef! P.S. I used MacIntosh apples ... my grandmother always used Macs for baking - soft and moist.
Had lots of apples & wanted an easy apple crisp without having to get ingredients from the store. Found this recipe. Filled my 9x13 pan full of sliced apples. Made the crisp topping & baked. Excellent!! It turned out great. Baked longer because of all the apples. Family loved it! Served with whipped cream. Very yummy. Will make again.
Scrumptious. Added an extra teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the apples.
I've made this several times and just love it! I add more cinnamon but that's just me.
Hi, I tried making this today - flavor was great but the crumble turned out powdery and a little loose. Any thoughts? I baked it for a little less than 40 minutes.
I used Granny Smith and a few Fuji's. It was delicious. I did increase the cinnamon, just for my own tastes. Simple, and easy
I had 3 apples sitting around that nobody was eating & then I stumbled across this recipe so I made it! I cut the recipe in 1/2 & made it without any changes. It was delicious (especially while it was warm)!!
This was tasty!! I made half a batch and it was plenty for 4 people. I added blueberries at the last minute and it was a great addition! Recipe is definitely worth a try!
Excellent! I now use this for my apple pie recipe. Just added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and 2 Tbsp tapioca. Best crumb topping recipe by far!! Look no further.
I made it according to the directions and it came out a little dry on the top and not a lot of oats mixed in. It may have been my fault though so I will be fair as the family enjoyed it warm with ice cream and I didn't hear too many complaints. Will attempt to make it again soon and see what happens.
This is the easiest, most delicious apple crisp recipe. Only part of this recipe I can complain about is the part stating to use 6 apples. I like measurements. Depending on apple size this measurement could get your recipe into recipe. Just play with your own amount of apples you would like to use for this recipe. Also, I find omitting the sugar all together is ok, especially if you are using orchard fresh apples or apples from your own tress.
Scrumptious! I made this for breakfast at my in-laws and it was a huge hit! I didn't have my regular recipe so decided to try this one. I'm glad I did. I am throwing out all of my other apple crisp recipes.It would be tasty with ice cream, but since it was breakfast, I had it with some plain yogurt...with both helpings.
The topping is awesome, but the filling needs tweaking. There needs to be a thickening agent like flour or cornstarch otherwise it's way to watery.
Great recipe- fussy fiancee liked it!
Added more to the oat topping because we like a lot of crispy topping. I also kept the skin on the apples.
I made it, it’s delicious
Delicious! Used a variety of apples. Had to make a second batch quickly because first batch went too fast@
I pretty much followed the recipe, I just added more ingredients then what the recipe is calling for. It came out super good and juicy. My whole house loved it. Will definitely make it again. Ps don’t forget the scoop of vanilla ice cream for each serving. It adds to the goodness
Great taste. Family enjoyed it.
This is a simple and delicious apple crisp recipe. I made it as instructed in the recipe and it is perfect! My favorite apple combo is half Honeycrisp and half Grannysmith. Enjoy!
I made this recipe with my Food and Nutrition class. My students really enjoyed it. The recipe was easy to follow and tastes great. We had to turn up the baking temperature (375) to make sure it cooked in the allotted time.
I precooked my apples to enough to soften them but not mush them out. Texture was good but not great. I am looking for great apple pie texture. I'm going to use baking apples next time to see if I can get the perfect texture. Yes I have fought using them for some reason and yes they should work better. But I had Gala so I used them. I use whole wheat flour whenever possible so I used it here and because the topping was darker I had to watch the baking closer at the end. I also mixed the cold butter into the dry ingredients with my fingers as suggested by another reviewer . It is somehow more satisfying but I wouldn't do it if I was in a hurry or cranky. The art and science behind these changes have made me a believer in....wait for it.... using Cook's Illustrated approach to cooking and thinking about my past failures. Who knew using my brain actually works. LOL
It was wonderful! Easy to make , tastes great, and the left over was just as good as the night I made it.
My husband said that this was the best apple crisp recipe that I have made....and I have to agree!
This had good flavor, but it was very dry. To be fair, I used only 1 cup of sugar in the topping instead of 1 1/2 cups. Also, the writer must have used some pretty small apples, because when I cut up 9 apples, it didn't fit in a 9 x 9 baking dish. I had to use a 9 x 12. I'd enjoy some suggestions as to how to make this more moist.
I never leave reviews on recipes but I had to for this one... it’s perfect! So simple and so delicious. Not too sweet like other recipes I’ve tried. And the crumble topping came out with the right consistency, not soggy. I followed the recipe exactly and put it in a 9x13 pan and it cooked perfectly.
I followed the instructions exactly, minus one apple because I only had 5. I used Granny Smith apples and it was absolutely perfect! So, so delicious!
fast easy and tastes great
Made this recipe with apples from our tree. Turned out very well. I might use more butter in the topping next time and less sugar.
It's very easy and extremely delicious.
Turned out very dry at the end. And 40 mins was not enough, sugar was not boiling even after 1 hour plus. Total disaster.
My granddaughters and I made this for dessert tonight. It was easy and fun! They even learned how to double the recipe to accommodate their large family. Delicious!! Crispy, cinnamon, and sweet apples...the kids took to the oatmeal granola we used "vanilla and almonds".
I didn't make any changes. I would most definitely make it again. It was AMAZING.
Very very good and simple. A little too sweet for me though. Next time I'll use 3/4 cup brown sugar.
To start I have to admit I was distracted while preparing the recipe so I added the brown sugar to the apples instead of the topping! Not wanting to start all over again, I used a slightly sweetened granola with almonds instead of the oats, added a 1/3 of a cup of brown sugar and hoped for,the best! The dish made it to the counter before the "vultures " descended and claimed it was the most amazing apple crisp they'd ever eaten.
instructions were very easy to follow and the dessert was terrific.. I would suggest the easy to make dessert for dinner. it takes very little time to prepare and bake.
Perfect the way it is, but I like to add blueberries to it. Great recipe!
I loved how quick and easy it was to make. However, I would like to try it again with a little more spice; maybe a pinch of nutmeg.
The best, for sure! I chunked five apples and sliced one thin for different textures. I mixed some of the topping in with the apples (for extra goo factor) and put the rest on top. Following recommendations, I only used 3/4 cup of brown sugar instead of a whole cup. Plenty sweet and delicious to me!
Came out yummy, whole family loved it
This is a great base recipe for a simple crisp topping, but it needs a pinch of salt to enhance the flavour, and I always try to add a half cup or so of slivered almonds or chopped pecans (any nut will do) for extra crunch. I've memorized this recipe for a quick dessert.
Yes I will make again. I added the lemon juice and the walnuts. It was delicious.
This was delicious. I added 1-2 tbsp of cornstarch to the apple mixture and put some nutmeg in with the topping. I also used gluten free flour and gluten free oats.
Added a few more apples a bit more oats and a bit longer in the oven ;)
