"This apple crisp recipe was given to my husband from an elderly woman when we were first married. DH did a job for the elderly couple that he knew they couldn&rsquot pay for. While he was there working, she offered him a plate of apple crisp that she just took out of the oven. DH said it was the best apple crisp he had ever eaten. He was given the best payment he could have ever received&hellip..the recipe. I make at least 2 apple crisps every year for DH. He likes his crisp warm, with a scoop of ice cream. It is good cold, but is the BEST when it is warm. I have used several different kinds of apples making this recipe, which are all good but, I think Gala makes the best apple crisp. Gala apples do not cook up too juicy or get too soft and soggy. It is just right! :)"
How to make healthy apple crisps (recipe)
Follow our easy, simple recipe to make healthy apple crisps to snack on. This fruity recipe uses a normal oven and just one ingredient!

Apple crisps are one of the easiest healthy fruit snacks to make at home. Just follow a few simple guidelines and you’ll be batch-baking these crisp, sweet addictive snacks every weekend.
They don’t take much effort, but keep an eye on them…
Our apple crisps take a total of three hours in the oven, so plan to make them when you have a morning or afternoon at home. You’ll also get crisper results if you turn them halfway through cooking.
Use any kind of eating apple – just choose your favourite
Drying the apples out will concentrate their natural sugars, so a Cox gives sweeter results than a Granny Smith. Don’t be tempted to try Bramleys they’re too sharp to eat on their own.
You don’t need to add extra sweetness
A lot of recipes sprinkle the apples with sugar or brush with honey before baking, but we’ve found that the natural sugar present gives the perfect amount of sweetness. Plus, adding sugar will make your healthy snack redundant.
Add extra flavours if you like
A sprinkle of ground cinnamon or ground ginger before baking will complement the natural apple flavour.
Use the right equipment
You’ll need a large baking sheet or tray and some baking paper. Greaseproof tends to stick to the apples so avoid using that. If you have a mandolin you can use that to get perfectly thin slices, but we’ve also had really good results just using a sharp knife. Make sure they don’t overlap as this will prevent them from crisping-up.
Cook them low and slow
We’ve tried a few methods including cooking at a higher temperature for less time. But in the end, we discovered that slow cooking on a low heat gives the most crisp results and stops them from catching.
Perfect apple crisps recipe
Heat the oven to 120C/fan 100C/gas ½. Cover a large baking sheet or tray with a sheet of baking parchment.
Using a sharp knife or mandolin cut your apple into thin slices, about 2 mm is ideal. Don’t worry about getting perfectly round slices (they look nice when they’re a bit jagged). Flick out any pieces of pip.
Lay the slices on the baking paper and put in the oven for one hour. Take out the tray and turn the slices over then cook for another hour.
After 2 hours is up turn off the oven completely and leave the apple slices in there for at least another hour for further drying. If you like you can make them last thing at night then leave them in overnight. Store in an airtight box, they will keep for a few days (if they last that long!).
The Best Apples for Apple Crisp
An apple is an apple, right? Not when it comes to baking. With so many varieties to choose from, narrowing the field of the best apples for apple crisp may not seem that important, but if you want the perfectly cooked center that won’t either become mush or put off too much liquid, there’s only one apple that always works best.
Because they hold their shape well during cooking, Granny Smith apples are my choice for baking in this recipe. Tart and a bit sour, Granny Smith apples balance the sweetness from the added sugar in most dessert recipes.
Substitute Granny Smith apples with honeycrisp or braeburns, both of which are more firm than other varieties, or use in tandem with Granny Smiths.
How To Make Air Fryer Apple Chips
Get complete ingredients list & instructions from recipe card below.
- Preheat the air fryer to 350 F / 180C.
- Thinly slice the apples using either a mandolin or a sharp knife.
- Remove any seeds and add apples to bowl and combine with cinnamon
- Transfer half of the spiced apple slices to the air fryer basket, arranging in a single layer.
- Cook for 8-10 minutes, turning and flattening them at least 2 times during the cooking process.
- Remove the cooked apples chips and then repeat with the rest of the apple slices.
Chef&rsquos Tip: You will have to turn and flatten the apple slices about 2-3 times during cooking, to remove any that have flow up on to the fan and so they crisp evenly.
Homemade Apple Chips In The Oven
Don&rsquot have an air fryer? Not to worry. Just follow these simple steps to make deliciously crispy apple chips in the oven:
- Preheat oven to 225 F / 110 C.
- Thinly slice the apples using either a mandolin or a sharp knife.
- Remove any seeds and add to bowl and combine with cinnamon.
- Arrange slices on a metal baking sheet.
- Bake for 45 &ndash 60 minutes until apples are dried and edges curl up.
- Using a spatula, transfer these onto a wire rack until fully cooled and crispy.
- Using a mandolin to slice the apples works best. Alternatively use a sharp knife.
- Don&rsquot cut them tooooo thin, as they can then burn without actually crisping up.
- Try to make sure the apple slices are all the same thickness so they will cook at the same rate.
- If thickness varies, divide into batches according to thickness and cook similar size slices together.
- If some slices are cooking quicker than others, simply remove the quicker cooking ones earlier.
- Note that your apple chips may not be fully crispy when done, but don&rsquot fret. They will crisp upon cooling.
- Cook time will also depend on the thickness of your apple slices. If they are very thin they may cook a bit quicker..
- Air fryer temperatures can vary depending on the make and model, so this recipe includes a range of suggested cook times.
- Vary the spices &ndash Use cardamom, nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice.
- Vary the crisp factor &ndash make these crisper for snacking, but softer for topping granola.
- Vary the fruit &ndash For a different flavour profile, follow this recipe and use pears instead of apples
Let them cool completely before storing in an airtight container at room temperature, they will stay good up to 7 &ndash 9 days.
What Type of Apples are Best for Making Apple Chips?
I made these using Braeburn apples, which have a nice crispness and subtle sweet flavour.
For an even sweeter treat, use Honeycrisp, Gala or Fuji apples. And the Gravestein and Granny Smith varieties are great choices if you prefer your apple crisps a bit on the tart side. This is on of the most flexible air fryer apple recipes.
How To Reduce The Chance Of Burning
- Air Fryer Temperatures vary, so if your crisps are burning, try cooking them at a slightly lower temperature.
- Or you could cut the slices a little thicker.
- Removed cooked slices earlier than less cooked ones.

Easy Individual Apple Crisps
These easy individual apple crisps are delightful! Sweet, juicy apples full of cinnamon flavor are topped with a thick layer of buttery, crunchy topping.
They are super fast and easy to whip together&hellip just slice the apples, add sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon, prepare the topping combining flour, oats, butter, cinnamon and sugar and and pop in the oven. In 45 minutes you will have a delicious dessert!
I like to use Gala apples, but feel free to use your favorite baking apples (adjust the amount of sugar if they are not too sweet) or a combination of sweet and tart apples. You can also throw in some chopped nuts to add a bit more crunch.
Test the tenderness of the apples with a skewer, if they are still not soft enough but your topping is brown, cover the crisp with foil so it doesn&rsquot burn.
This is a great dessert to make when you are entertaining, prepare it early in the day, cook it, refrigerate, and heat it up just before serving.
Serve the individual apple crisps warm with a big dollop of whipped cream, Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream and perhaps a drizzle of salted caramel sauce. I love when the ice cream starts melting into the crisp!
Individual apple crisps will keep covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days.
Enjoy the flavors of apple pie without the fuss of a crust. Grab a spoon and dig in! :)
- For the crisp topping:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces and chilled
- For the apple filling:
- 2 pounds firm, sweet apples (4 to 5 medium-large apples)
- Up to 1/4 cup water
- For serving (optional):
- Vanilla ice cream or heavy cream
- Equipment: 8-inch-square baking dish, preferably ceramic, glass, enamel-coated cast-iron, or stainless steel (avoid aluminum or uncoated cast-iron)
Recipe overview: Apple Crisp
Apples: Thinly sliced apples are tossed with apple cider, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A couple tablespoons of flour thicken the apple mixture, and then they get placed in a greased baking dish.
Crisp Topping: Oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and melted butter. This here is my favorite fruit crisp topping. Stir it up and crumble it over the top of the apples. The oats add heartiness, the brown sugar adds a depth of sweetness, and the melted butter ensures that every bite has a crisp buttery texture.
Baking: I like to start baking this Apple Crisp covered with foil. This allows the apples to begin to soften without any risk of the topping over-browning. After about 20 minutes, remove the foil and let the crisp finish cooking uncovered. Uncovering the apple crisp is what is going to make our topping crisp up. Once the juices are bubbling, the topping is golden brown, and the apples are tender, it is done!
What type of apples to use?
Use your favorite baking apples. Honeycrisp, Pink Lady and Fuji are my favorite for this recipe. If you prefer a less sweet apple crisp, you can use Granny Smith apples.
Make sure you slice the apples really thin (¼ inch or thinner). This way they bake evenly and tender every time.
How to serve:
In my opinion, an Apple Crisp should be served warm, but not hot. It should be warm enough to slowly melt that big scoop of vanilla ice cream that I am undoubtedly placing on top.
Optional: A drizzle of caramel sauce over the top. Or you can even just spoon some of those sweet apple-cinnamon juices from the bottom of the baking dish over the top of your crisp.
Have leftovers? Place them in the refrigerator. You can eat the leftovers cold, straight from the fridge (breakfast of champions), or you can reheat it in the microwave to warm it up again.

Irish Apple Crisp
I’m not Irish myself (I’m a 1/2 Swedish, quarter Portuguese kinda girl). My husband is very Irish though. He has the fair skin, the rosy cheeks, he likes beer, he can talk to anyone, and he’s the last one to leave the party. So when I feed him something and tell him it’s “Irish,” he jumps on board for an enthusiastic taste test. This apple crisp uses Irish oats (I use McCann’s quick-cooking rolled oats… not the steel cut variety) in the crumbly topping. The apples are tossed in a bit of Irish whiskey for good measure.
The result is a beautiful, sweet apple crisp with a lovely, crusty crumble baked on top.
We topped our servings with freshly whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel, just to be extra decadent. And my Irish guy… he gave this dessert his Irish stamp of approval!
The Best Apple Crisp Recipe
I’ve made lots and lots of apple crisps in the past, but this one takes the cake… er… crisp. It starts with warm, stewed, soft apples – I cook them down with a little apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice!) for pop. Then, I add cinnamon, ginger, and a pinch of cardamom to give them a warm, spiced flavor. Gala apples are my favorite variety for this recipe – I like their sweet/tart flavor and firm texture. But if you have a favorite baking apple, feel free to use it here. Granny smith apples, Honeycrisps, Jonagolds, or a mix would all be excellent.
I love these stewed apples so much that I could just stop here and eat them by themselves as a truly healthy fruit-only dessert. They’d also be insanely good on oatmeal or overnight oats for breakfast.
My Easy Apple Crisp Topping
But, since this is dessert and it’s called apple crisp, let’s talk about that crisp topping! It’s a mix of rolled oats, almond flour, walnuts, coconut oil, brown sugar (or coconut sugar), and, of course, more cinnamon, because I don’t think there could ever be too much cinnamon in a fall dessert. This topping happens to be gluten-free because oats & nuts crisp up perfectly without the need for flour, and they just taste so good together.
How to Make Apple Crisp in Advance
This healthy apple crisp recipe is great for entertaining because it can almost entirely be made in advance. I make the apples and the topping ahead of time and divide the the apple mixture among the ramekins. A few minutes before serving, I sprinkle the topping over the ramekins and pop them in the oven.
I like to make these extra festive by sprinkling them with pomegranates. Serve with vanilla ice cream or coconut cream, and dig in!
