Easy Apple Crisp
I love most all recipes that require apples. This easy apple crisp is something I have been making for many years.
You should use soft apples, like granny smith or Fuji. You want an apple that is recommended for baking. If you use an eating apple, it will not soften and you’ll have crunchy apples.
This is a great recipe to make when you have fresh apples on hand. We like to make this in the Fall. If my husband had his way, we’d probably make it every week.
If you have apples pre-sliced and frozen, you can use those too, just portion out to what you need. Makes your prep time less!

4 cups tart cooking apples chopped and peeled
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 stick melted butter (1/2 cup)
2 teaspoons cinnamon (divided)
Preheat the oven to 375F.
In a bowl, add the chopped apples and mix the lemon juice over the apples and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
Place the chopped apples in a greased shallow pan (8×8 or 9×9 square pan works great).
In a bowl combine the remaining ingredients and stir until mixed thoroughly.
Sprinkle the oatmeal mixture over the apples so it is evenly covering the apples..
Bake for 30-40 minutes at 375 degrees F.
If you want soft apples, cook a little longer.
Apple Crisp Tips
- Using apples that are cut into slices works great, but you can also use apples cut into 1″ pieces
- Have apple slices on hand to make this whenever you want
- Use a soft apple, like granny smith, fuji or gala, so they soften while baking
- Use the same type of apples you would to bake an apple pie
