Mini Apple Crisp

Fall to me is all about warmth and comfort and a comfort recipe of the season that I absolutely love is homemade Apple crisp. My husband makes this for us every year as Autumn approaches. The combination of local apples from Bellewood Acres, cinnamon and oatmeal crumb topping make this recipe memorable and a favorite in our home worth sharing. I’d enjoy making this dessert for the people I love, and with my mind forever in party mode,  I’ve made a version suitable for celebrations, using a mini muffin tin to create one-bite portions. I also made this recipe vegan to accommodate my recent dietary changes due to my 5 month old’s dairy, soy and egg allergies.

Homemade Mini Apple Crisp (also vegan)


Mini muffin tin pan

Pam cooking spray

4 medium cooking apples preferably tart (diced 1/2 inch cubes)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup Earth Balance coconut spread at room temperature (or  butter for non vegan)

Coconut Milk Ice-cream or Regular Vanilla Ice-cream (optional)


 Preheat oven to 375 and spray mini muffin tin with pam cooking spray. Set aside.
Pour teaspoon of vanilla into diced apples and mix together .
Pour dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together adding in coconut spread or butter until incorporated.
Press a small amount of the incorporated crisp mix into the bottom of each individual muffin cup (1).
Add 1 layer (about a spoonful) of diced apples to the muffin cups filling just below the rim (2).
Top the apples with a final layer of crisp mix pressing firmly into the pan (3).
Repeat these steps until all muffin cups are full.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Top with ice-cream.
slightly adapted from Betty Crocker
Let cool a bit before trying to remove the crisps from the pan. I used a knife around the edges and mine came out perfectly.

posh little tip~ Instead of apples, use what’s in season in your area. Fresh blackberries, peaches pears, or cherries would all be delicious in this recipe.
