This Apple Crisp recipe has thick slices of juicy, tender apples with a thick topping layer made with oats, butter and lots of sweet goodness!
Lordy, do we have a lot to talk about today!
But first, let’s talk Apple Crisp.
It’s fall, it’s getting colder, apples are in season and crispy, buttery, crumbly toppings are a dessert’s dream. This easy apple crisp was bound to happen.
But remember how I’m also on board to create some recipes for the Truvia brand? They sent me some of their new Brown Sugar Blend – that’s right, they now have a brown sugar version! I used both their white and brown sugar in this apple crisp recipe and I am firmly in love with it. It looks, smells, tastes and even feels just like the brown sugar we’ve all been using for years – except that it has 75% fewer calories per serving.
I like my Apple Crisp to have thick slices of apples so they don’t break down too much during cooking. I also really love the topping so I put a LOT of it on my apples! Seriously…this apple crisp has probably a 50/50 apples to topping ratio. Cut it in half if you prefer more apples than topping (even if I’ll think you’re nuts :)
Next up, let’s discuss the Truvia brand’s new baking contest! It’s called the Baking Star Video Contest and all you have to do is submit a video of an original recipe that highlights either the NEW Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend or the Truvia® Baking Blend before October 14th. The Truvia® brand partnered with 4 of YouTube’s top foodies, including a gourmet chef and healthy living expert, to launch the Truvia Baking Star contest. Gaby Dalkin, Byron Talbott, April Moore and Joanne Ozug created a series of recipe videos which all use the new Brown Sugar Blend. The recipes they created look AWESOME – you can check them out by clicking each name I’ve linked to.
Even if you don’t enter the contest, I hope you’ll try this apple crisp. It’s perfectly sweet and goes perfectly with a scoop or two of creamy vanilla ice cream!
