Super Easy Apple Crisp

Easy Apple Crisp Recipe

We are so excited to share this super versatile mini apple crisp recipe! It's been a family favorite of ours for many years.

It's a simple and easy way to use apples from your fridge or freezer. In this video we showcase making mini apple crisps - but you can easily change the baking vessel for something you have on hand (like an 8" x 8" baking pan or similar).

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Be sure to leave us a comment if you give this recipe a try!

Fruit mixture:

  • 4 cups peeled and chopped apple*
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Crumble Topping:

  • 1/2 cup room temperature butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats (can use old fashioned oats)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

*for 8" x 8" pan, make 1.5X fruit mixture


    1. Preheat oven to 375F.
    2. Peel and chop the apples and place into a bowl.
    3. Pour in the lemon juice, followed by the cinnamon and mix the apples until they are well coated.
    4. In a separate bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar, flour, oats and cinnamon. Mix by hand or using a wooden spoon until it's thoroughly mixed together and crumbles.
    5. Pour the apples into the ramekins leaving about 1/2" room at the top.
    6. Sprinkle the crumble topping over each one, trying not to pack the mixture down too much.
    7. Bake the apple crisps for about 40-50 minutes, until the apples are softened and crisp is golden brown (test this by placing a fork or knife into the apples - they should be soft and easy to pierce).
    8. Let them cool for about 10 minutes. Serve them warm, and add a scoop of icecream on top for the ultimate treat!
