Grandma's Perfect and Easy Apple Crisp

What you need: 

4 cups apples, sliced or chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
pinch salt
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
nonstick spray
3/4 cup flour (I use whole wheat pastry)
1/2 cup organic "white" sugar (not sucanat)
1/4 cup vegan margarine (I use regular Earth Balance), melted
pinch salt

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Toss apples with cinnamon, salt, water, and lemon juice.
2. Spray a pie pan or 10 X 6 pan with nonstick spray (or oil it). Place apple mixture in pan.
3. Mix together well the topping: flour, sugar, margarine, and salt. Crumble it over the apple mixture.
4. Bake until topping becomes a little browned, usually about 50-60 minutes or so.
I like to serve this with some nondairy milk poured on top. One of my favorite recipes of childhood. I omitted the dairy and cut the fat and sugar content way, way down. It still tastes decadent and wonderful to me!

mmMMmm this made me drool so i decided to make it with my left over apples after making apple butter and oh my dear lordy...this is the most delicious desert i have ever made!! i swallowed it up in one day and i went and got peaches so i can make a peach crisp 2morrow:) thank you so much!


Glad everyone is enjoying this recipe! I wanted to mention that the photo I added was taken by Vegansapien--thanks!!


This recipe is great! Super easy and hardly takes anything. I have made a couple with the kids to use up the apples from our tree. I have given them to vegans and non-veggies alike, everyone loves them! The apples I have are very tart, so added a couple teaspoons sugar to the apple mixture as well. Thanks for the fab recipe!  :)>>>


yummy!  i threw in a splash of apple cider vinegar instead of lemon.  i used 1/4 cup oats and 1/4 cup chopped almonds too, so I upped the EB by 2 tbsp.  i love how simple this.  it is just perfect.


Great! Glad you liked it! :)


Mmmmm! This is a great recipe. My daughters (ages 8 and 11) actually did most of the cooking. They added blueberries and sliced strawberries to the apple mixture. Two thumbs up!
