Autumn marks the apple season. Savor the simplicity and comfort of this delightful crisp.



  • 6 to 8 medium apples (Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, Jonagold, or a mix), cored and diced, about 6 cups
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 tbs. cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1 tbs. lemon juice 


  • 1 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup of almond slices
  • 2 T flour (can substitute gluten-free)
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 4-5 T organic liquid coconut oil


  1. Mix apples with syrup and spices and ensure they are covered well. Add the 3 T of cornstarch to the water and mix well. Add the mixture to the apples and mix well. Add the lemon juice and mix well. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. Combine oats, sugar, almonds, flour, and salt in a separate bowl. Mix well. Drizzle the coconut oil while mixing the ingredients well, incorporating the oil.
