Easy Baked Oatmeal Apple Crisp

Fall is my favorite time of year in the kitchen. 
Recipes in the cooler months are less hassle than the warmer months. In the fall I could use my crockpots everyday to let full dinners simmer from morning until sun down.
The things I can do with the oven as it baked dishes and helps warm the house are just amazing, like this easy baked oatmeal apple crisp I made.

We had a day last week when the weather was cool and I wanted to make apple pie for my family. My husband loves apple pie, but the whole pie crust process is more than I want to tackle most days so I often make an apple crisp. On this day, I didn’t even feel like baking an entire apple crisp so I decided to improvise. This is what I came up with.

Easy Baked Apple Crisp

  • 5 Golden Delicious Apples, peeled, cut in half and cored
  • a 1/2 stick of salted butter softened
  • 1/2 a cup of whole rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon

1. First I peel, half, and core the apples. Next, I create slices through them without cutting all the way through.

2. In a small bowl, I mix my softened butter and my dry ingredients. Once mixed, I place about a tablespoon of the mix on top of each apple and press it down.

3. Finally, I bake my apples in the oven on 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

I was thinking of adding a dollop of whipped cream on top, but I didn’t have any. I was sorta glad though, because baked apple crisps had just enough sugary sweetness to balance out the tart apples without the extra calories from the whipped cream.

    My daughter loves the crispy topping by it’self so I’m going to experiment with making a crunchy brittle for her.
