How to make the best healthy apple crisp recipe
- You'll choose high sugared apples, in this case, no need to add any sugar. Golden and Gala apples are my choices.
- Replace butter with peanut butter; a very healthy choice. Try to use sugar-free peanut butter.
- Let's add some coconut cream so that we can have some tenderness and moisture in this apple crisp recipe.
- Cook the apples for a few minutes in coconut oil. Cold-pressed coconut oil pulls everything together, making this apple crisp so yummy.
How to cook low-carb apple crisp recipe?
Do you've got a sauté pan that goes in the oven?
You'll first cook your apples in the sauté pan then send them in the oven to bake. This will shorten the baking time, saving you time.
By using oatmeal flour and rolled oats, you'll also reduce the cooking time since these ingredients don't necessarily need any cooking.
I don't peel our apples, the skin is full of fiber, but be free to peel them.
Can you leave your apple crisp out overnight?
- Oh yes you can! you can make this apple crisp in the evening and leave it out on your kitchen counter for the morning breakfast.
- You can also keep it in the fridge for a few days and reheat it before serving. Just note, however, that the taste and the aspect will degrade with time.
I hope you'll love this healthy apple crisp recipe as we love it here. A recipe to enjoy anytime.
We don't top our low carb apple crisp with ice cream because we don't like ice creams over here, and again, we eat this for our breakfast...

The best healthy low-carb apple crisp recipe
- sauté pan
- Baking tin
- 2 1/2 rolled oats
- 1 tsp ginger
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp syrup or extra depending on your taste
- 3 tbsp thick peanut butter
- 160 ml coconut cream
- 10 small apples
- 1 tsp ginger spice
- 1 tsp cinnamon spice
- 1 tbsp coconut oil in solid form
- 1 cup coconut cream
- Heat your oven at 190°
- Blend 2 cups of rolled oats to get oat flour and pour it in a big bowl
- Add the other ingredients together with the remaining rolled oats and form a dough that's thick in texture
- Cover the dough and set it aside
- Slice your apples into thick wedges and put them in a sauté pan that can go in the oven
- Sprinkle with ginger & cinnamon, add the coconut oil and cook them first at medium-high heat for about 8 mins
- Pour the coconut cream, stir gently and cut off the heat
- Break the dough into crumbles and spread them all over the apples
- Put the sauté pan in the already hot oven and bake for 17 mins or until the crumbles are golden
- Let the apple crisp cool and enjoy it while still warm
- Thank you so much for pining this recipe
- I used small apples so use a few if you have big size apples.
- I use homemade peanut butter that's thick in texture, if you are using a flowing peanut butter consider using 4-5 spoons but then add the coconut cream gradually.
- If you don't have a skillet/pan that can go the oven, then transfer your apples into a baking tin after adding coconut cream and bake till crumbles are golden.
