Easy Apple Crisp Recipe

6 servings

When we created this easy apple crisp recipe, our goal was to make a healthy vegan dessert using only whole plant foods. Almost every recipe for apple crisp calls for peeling the apples and discarding the peels. We wanted to use the peels for their fiber and colorful nutrients, but since they can be a little tough, we wanted to hide them. We succeeded. Yay!

To sweeten our apple dessert recipe, we used orange segments, raisins, and sweet spices instead of processed sweeteners. The result was a delicious fruit dessert, with a low calorie density to boot. We took it to two potlucks in a row and people loved it. Now we always make a double batch.

A totally guilt-free vegan dessert recipe

So where are the apple peels? We blended them with orange segments until they were pulverized.

We chopped some raisins into the mix to sweeten it.

The oats make it chewy and the sliced almonds add crunch. This easy apple crisp recipe is one of our favorites. Yum!

3 oz old fashioned rolled oats
1 oz sliced almonds

5 oz fresh orange segments

32 oz apples

2 oz raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cardamom

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly oil an 8 x 8" baking dish.

In a large wide bowl, weigh rolled oats and sliced almonds. Stir together.

In a small bowl, weigh fresh orange segments. Transfer them to a blender and blend until smooth.

Weigh the apples whole, then core and peel them, saving the peels. Chop the apples into bite-sized pieces and toss them gently with the oat-almond mixture.

Add apple peels to the blender and puree them with the blended oranges.

Use the small bowl to weigh raisins, and add them to the mix in the blender, along with the cinnamon and cardamom. Mix briefly on low speed, just to chop the raisins a bit. Do not puree.

Add blended mixture to apple mixture and toss to mix. Spread in prepared baking dish. Cover and set pan on a baking sheet to catch drips. Bake for 1 hour.

Comments: This easy apple crisp recipe works for nearly everyone, healthy or sick. It is a low fat apple crisp that is also sugar free, so is an acceptable diabetic dessert recipe. If you use gluten-free oats, this is a good gluten free dessert that everyone will like.

If you don't have any sliced almonds, use chopped walnuts or pecans. Try making it with pears or peaches instead of apples, or with different dried fruits.
