This crisp is my ALL TIME FAVORITE dessert! I probably make it at least once a month because it’s the type of food I’m always in the mood of. It’s funny because the other morning, I overheard my husband telling my daughter, while taking the crisp out of the fridge, “Rachelli, do you know what Mommy is going to eat for breakfast, lunch and supper? She’s gonna have CRISP!” I think that says it all…  This crisp is a lighter version of many other crisp recipes I’ve’ seen (which call for more sugar and margarine in the topping) but its bursting with deliciously sweet  flavor. After tasting this crisp, you have to wonder why anyone would add margarine or more sugar because it literally can’t get any better! Why add extra unhealthy ingredients for no reason?


-7-8 small to medium sized sweet apples (Gala works great) thinly sliced

-2 TBSP flour

-1 tsp cinnamon

-1 tsp vanilla extract

-1 C. frozen mixed cranberry and blueberry


-1 ½ C. rolled old fashion oats

-1/2 tsp cinnamon

-1/3 C flour

-1/3 C brown sugar

-1/4 C. oil

-pinch of salt



-Line a 11x7 glass or ceramic baking pan with parchment paper and preheat oven to 375 F. Note* this recipe comes out best when baked in a real baking dish as opposed to a disposable aluminum pan.

-Place thinly sliced apples, flour, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and frozen berries into a large bowl and mix well.

-Pour the mixture into the baking pan and distribute evenly. Place the TOPPING ingredients into the bowl in the order listed and mix very well. Using your hand (easier and less messy) or a large spoon, carefully place topping mixture over the apples. Make sure it is evenly distributed.

-Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes and then reduce temperature to 350 F and bake for an additional 25 min. If topping is beginning to burn, place pan on a lower rack and reduce the temperature even more. The apple mixture should be bubbling.

-Remove from oven and let cool for about 20 minutes.

Tastes delicious served hot, warm, cool and cold. Whatever you prefer.  But, I highly doubt you will be able to wait till it gets cold before having your first bite! Enjoy and be sure to save some for others 😉
