For those that don’t know me, I have a deep love for my family. I suppose it only gets magnified knowing that I’m so far away from them. But it warms my heart whenever we do get a chance to talk and catch up with each other. I’m always so happy to help with any recipes or techniques should they inquire. Recently, my cousin called me with a question that was so simple, but somehow I didn’t have an answer for her. She had an apple and wanted to know if I had any recipes for a single apple. I looked for recipes for a while just to satisfy that desire to have a recipe for a single apple Although I did not find exactly what I was looking for, I played around with the basic concept of apple crisp and came up with my own version. I did it quite a few times until my husband and I agreed that we had arrived at something special. So thanks to Kim, I’m able to share this recipe today.
I wanted to keep the ingredients as simple as possible and good for you too.
- Apple Filling:
- 1 Apple – Royal Gala (or a firm apple like Granny Smith)
- 1 Tbsp Agave Nectar
- 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
- 1 Tsp Flour
- Butter for greasing oven-proof bowl
- Oats Topping:
- 2 Tbsp Butter, softened
- 1 Tbsp Flour
- 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1 Tsp Cinnamon Powder
- 4 Tbsp Whole Oats
- Peel the apple and cut into small chunks.
- Use butter and grease a small oven proof bowl (I used a16oz bowl, 5inches in diameter)
- In a separate bowl, mix apple, agave nectar, lemon juice and flour so that apple is fully coated
- Empty coated apple into prepared oven proof bowl
- In a small bowl, add softened butter, flour, sugar, cinnamon and oats
- Combine using a fork and then crumble with your fingers until all the ingredients are combined
- Spread oats mixture on top of the apple in the prepared bowl
- Bake in a 375F oven until nicely browned on top, about 25 minutes
- Remove from oven and allow to rest for about 10 minutes
- Enjoy by itself or with traditional vanilla ice-cream
For some reason, Brown Sugar and Cinnamon look so beautiful together…
The result is a very clean and lean Apple Crisp that I’ve enjoyed many times. Thanks, Kim!
Have a great week everyone!
