With apples being one of the most inexpensive, most delicious fruits to get your hands on right now, I was inspired to throw together a quick, personal bowl of healthy apple crisp (in under 10 minutes). Now this isn’t as buttery and sweet as your traditional versions, but if you are looking for a warm, healthy, apple, crunch to finish off your meal…this will do just fine!
• 1 organic apple
• 1½ teaspoons cinnamon
• 2 tablespoons rolled oats
• 3 tablespoons chopped nuts and/or seeds
• 1 teaspoon honey, melted
• 1 teaspoon butter or coconut oil, melted (optional ingredient)
• 2 tablespoons lemon juice
• 3-5 tablespoons water
• pinch of sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F with a rack towards the top of the oven (OR if you have a toaster oven, use that instead).
- Wash, core and slice the apple (skin on for extra fiber). Toss with lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Set aside.
- In a small bowl mix rolled oats, chopped nuts, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and melted honey until well combined. Spread in a thin layer on a piece of tin foil and bake for ~5 minutes. Watch carefully to avoid burning.
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, begin to cook the apples. Every time the pan starts to dry up, add a tablespoon of water. Cook for about 6 minutes until desired doneness.
- Throw the cooked apples in a bowl and sprinkle with the oat and nut crumble.
