Healthier Apple Crisp


For The Topping:

  • 1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour (I use oat flour)
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup raw chopped pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

For The Filling:

  • 5-6 medium Honeycrisp or Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and very thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease an 8×8 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. To make the topping: Combine the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and pecans in a large bowl until well-combined. Add in the pieces of coconut oil and use your hands to squeeze and combine until the mixture becomes crumbly and resembles wet sand.
  3. Once finished, place topping in the fridge and begin making the apple filling.
  4. To make the filling: Place apples, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla in a large bowl and toss to combine. Allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Take 1/3 cup of the topping mixture and toss with the apple mixture. Place the apple mixture in the prepared pan and sprinkle evenly with topping.
  6. Bake the crisp on a baking sheet (just in case the filling bubbles over!) for 45-55 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes on wire rack. Serve warm with your favorite vanilla ice cream. Makes 9 servings.
