Easy 5 Ingredient Apple Crisp

Let’s face it, when you get to the end of the main meal of Thanksgiving, you’re more stuffed than that turkey was at the start of the meal. So when 5-6 different pies are placed on the table for dessert round, it’s totally overwhelming.

This apple crisp provides a lighter alternative to traditional apple pie. There is no crust, so that’s one less layer. Comprised of mostly apples and oats, this high fiber dessert will help promote good digestive health – definitely important after a big Thanksgiving meal.

Crisp vs Crumble vs Cobbler

Just in case you’re curious, here’s the difference among different crumb-topped fruit desserts, here’s how they break down:

  • Crisp = streusel topping made with oats
  • Crumble = streusel topping made with butter, flour, sugar
  • Cobbler = has a biscuit topping

Putting It All Together

This recipe can be made one of two ways. You can either combine all ingredients into one pie pan for one big crisp to spoon out, or distribute the apples and crumb topping among ramekins for individual serving sizes. The ramekin route is a nice touch if you’re having a dinner party so everyone gets their own dessert.
