  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup old-fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ice cream or whipped topping, optional

Apple Filling

  • 6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced thin but not slivered
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • teaspoons cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly spray an 8x8-inch baking dish.
  • In a medium-sized bowl add the oats, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, and brown sugar.
  • Add the cold cubed butter. Using a fork or fingers, work the butter into the flour and oat mixture until crumbly. Set this aside.
  • In a large bowl, add the sliced apples.
  • Drizzle the lemon juice over the apples. Toss the apples to coat them well with the lemon juice.
  • In a small bowl combine the flour, sugar, packed light brown sugar, and cinnamon. Quickly stir together to combine.
  • Sprinkle the flour mixture over the apples and toss to coat the apples.
  • Evenly layer the apples into the lightly sprayed baking dish.
  • Evenly sprinkle the oat mixture topping over the apples.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Serve warm and top with ice cream or whipped topping.


  • Be sure to slice or dice your apples consistently so that they cook evenly. 
  • Do not skip peeling the apples. Leaving the peels on will affect the consistency and texture of your crisp.
  • Adding flour to your apples will help ensure that your filling is not crumbly.
  • Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your crisp at the lower end of the recommended baking time.
