Maple Apple Crisp

Three Individual Maple Apple Crisps in white bowls on wood cutting board

Maple Apple Crisp will become a fall favorite. If you were asked to name an apple dessert, would apple pie be your first response? Maybe so and pies are a wonderful way to showcase the season’s bounty of apples, but don’t overlook the cousin of apple pie: apple crisp.

No need to fuss with crafting pie dough, just add a few spices and some sugar to apples then top that combination with a mixture of oats and melted butter (among other ingredients) and you’ll have a gorgeous apple dessert worthy of any autumn occasion.

And I mean ANY occasion– for breakfast top this with a dollop of Greek yogurt, for an afternoon snack eat it just barely warmed through, for an easy weeknight dessert add a scoop of ice cream and to impress your guests at the Thanksgiving table, finish this apple crisp with some rum whipped cream.

Two individual Apple Crisps with spoonful of apples

This maple apple crisp is a recipe from Whole Foods. The addition of maple syrup (make sure to use a good quality syrup) really brings those fall flavors together in a cozy way.

The aroma is enough to remind you of shorter days, cooler evenings and colorful leaves starting to fall off trees. Have you visited an apple orchard yet this autumn? Bring home some apples from the orchard or stop by your local Whole Foods to find a variety of apples. Whole Foods offers this advice when baking with apples:

  •  Don’t wash your apples until you are ready to eat them—unwashed apples store longer than washed ones
  • Store your apples in a cool, dark place to extend their shelf life until you’re ready to use them
  • While “one bad apple can spoil the bunch,” you can use bruised apples in delicious recipes, from applesauce and apple butter to smoothies and apple chips baked in the oven

I was never a big apple lover but as I get older they are growing on me. I bet I would love this crisp recipe. Looks beautiful.

Yes, apples on their own would be very nice too-- I just can't resist sugar & butter too! The other apple treat I still need to enjoy this month is apple cider.
