Individual Apple Crisps

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on

Apples are one of my favorite fruits.  I have no problem eating them plain, by themselves, but apple desserts are some of my favorites too.  And there’s nothing better than hot, fresh applesauce from the stove.  Or raw with peanut butter.  Or… OK, so I could go on and on.  In fact I think I’m going to start taking pictures of all the apple based snacks we eat and then compiling it all into one post.  We really eat a lot of apples.  What’s your favorite way to eat an apple?

So loving apples like we do, when I saw these individual apple(and pear!) crisps at Cookie and Kate I knew I had to try them.  I originally tried her recipe and loved them, but I had my own ideas too so I immediately got back in my kitchen.  If you’ve ever had an apple cranberry crisp, this is the equivalent, and it’s really delicious.  Choose a firm, sweet apple for this one.  You wont be disappointed, they’re so delicious, especially hot from the oven, but even cold out of the fridge the next morning for breakfast.  Not that I would know anything about that…

I should also mention that apples were the subject for this months column in our local paper.  I was quite happy when I realized there isn’t too much available at the market that I haven’t already covered so I would have to write about apples.  Of course, it was a little intimidating since apples are something that have been our valley for a very long time, but I mostly just tried to write about how amazing apples are for us.  Really, what’s more simple than an apple?  It doesn’t need any special packaging or treatment, you pick it from the tree and take it with you wherever you’re going and enjoy it whenever you want.   And yet it is so good for you, it’s pretty amazing 🙂

I love that this recipe calls for apples with oats. I tend to be a ittle constipated when I get to have too much apples. But the oats in the recipe will balance my colon needs. Perfect! Delicious and healthy…the combination I have always been dreaming about. Thanks a lot!

This is one of those “why didn’t I think of that” kinds of recipes! As you can tell by my name, I bake gluten free at home, so that whole wheat flour would be replaced and we’d use GF oats. But I can’t think it would make any difference in the taste or the way it baked up. Such a creative take on a classic recipe concept. My girls would love these – bookmarking it!

What a wonderful recipe, I would never have thought of making individual servings in that way!

What a fun recipe! I have had making apple crisp on my list for fall, yet haven’t done it yet. Now fall is almost over! This looks like a perfect recipe to end the season with. 🙂
