Quick and Easy Apple Crisp Recipe

Baked apple with oatsI had read somewhere a long time ago that if you don’t have the time (and the energy) to make an apple pie, an apple crisp can be the next best thing.  I didn’t think much of this since apple pie is what my kids demand every apple season as soon as we go apple picking. And apple pie is what I make every year – at least a few times! And this is our most favorite recipe for apple pie.

Well this year, things are a little different. As you know I need a lot of help in the kitchen due to my RA and my hands can no longer handle the slicing of apples. So I outsourced that to my kitchen help who comes twice a week to help me with my cooking. God bless her! But even after she had sliced all the apples that I gave her, they lay in the fridge for a couple days since the next thing was to make the pastry dough for which I again needed help. Usually my son helps me with baking but he was too busy with his academic and sports stuff and so as I was figuring out how to use these sliced apples, the idea of an ‘apple crisp’ came to mind.

Easy Apple Crisp recipeSo one weeknight, I set to action getting all the ingredients together and basically dumping them all together on a pie pan.  Took me just 15 minutes to put it together and it baked slowly in the oven as we ate dinner.  Came out gooey and delicious! Kids were really happy and no one has asked for apple pie.  Yet. 🙂

Also I made a dairy free, gluten free,sugar free, mini version for myself using just apples, oats, olive oil and some rice flour and jaggery.! Yum!
