Mini Apple Crisps – these easy and lightened up fruit crisps are a simple and tasty dessert for fall. Made in single-sized servings with tender apples and a cinnamon oatmeal streusel.
When it comes to dessert, fruit crisps are hands down one of my favorites these days. They are seriously one of the easiest things to make – and probably one of the few desserts I am always willing to turn on the oven for.
What I love about crisps is that you can use any combination of fruit you like. For me, nothing is more comforting than a warm apple crisp fresh out of the oven on a cool autumn afternoon.
And since we’re also throwing a virtual baby shower for three of my blogging friends, I thought I would make my favorite fall dessert into mini-sized versions instead.
Surprise! Today a bunch of blogging buddies and I are celebrating Ashley of The Recipe Rebel, Denise from Sweet Peas & Saffron, and Kristine of Kristine’s Kitchen who are all expecting new little pumpkins this Fall!
I’ve gotten to know these ladies for a few years now and they are seriously the sweetest. I had the pleasure to meet all three of them at a blogging conference in Salt Lake City last year, and then two of them again at a Toronto conference, and they are all even more awesome in person.
They are also amazing mamas who are kind, genuine and share so many delicious recipes your family will love.
Congrats ladies! We all couldn’t be more excited for you and it would be even more awesome if we were having this shower in person! Can’t wait to see lots of photos of your new sweeties 🙂
I was originally going to share a pumpkin recipe but remembered that Ashley isn’t a fan of pumpkin so I decided to share an apple recipe instead.
Although I do like pumpkin, I am totally on Team Apple if I had to choose my favorite fall flavor.
And these mini apple crisps are not only perfect for a baby shower, they’re also great for potlucks, family gatherings or any time you’re craving something sweet.
And the best part is that since they are individual sized you don’t even have to share 😉
I also decided to keep these apple crisps refined sugar free by sweetening them up with coconut sugar. And instead of butter, they are made with coconut oil and are completely gluten-free.
If you prefer to make this recipe the classic way, feel free to use brown sugar and / or butter instead.
The cinnamon oat crumble still bakes up all beautiful, golden and crispy, and is the perfect complement to the sweet apple filling.
Enjoy this apple crisp on its own or with a scoop of frozen yogurt or vanilla ice cream. Either way you choose, these would make any day better whether you’re celebrating anything or not!
Don’t forget to stop by and check out the other recipes from all of the bloggers hosting this virtual baby shower too!
