Yay! It’s apple season! Apples are my second favorite fruit (after raspberries, of course). They taste great so many different ways and pair really well with so many flavors. One of my favorite ways to eat apples is in apple crisp. I just love the soft, cinnamon sugar apples paired with a crispy, crumbly topping. However, sometimes I want apple crisp without making a whole pan…
This recipe is the solution. It’s really easy, you just need one pot and about 20 minutes. This recipe would be great topped with granola (especially this Spiced Nut Granola – just skip step 4). This recipe can also be doubled easily so you can share apple season with someone special.
- 1 small apple
- 1/2 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon coconut oil, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon and 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar, divided
- 2 tablespoons oats
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sliced almonds
- Peel, core, and chop apple.
- Melt 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil and cinnamon in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in apples, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, and 2 teaspoons water.
- Cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are soft, about 6-8 minutes. Set aside in small bowl or mug.
- In the same saucepan, melt 1 teaspoon coconut oil over low heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar, oats, and almonds and cook until crunchy, about 4-6 minutes.
- Sprinkle topping over apples.
