Heart-to-Heart with Diane

Comfort Apple Crisp

Apple-picking Ammon

Oooh, yum!

If you still have apples on your trees, don't miss this delicious autumn dessert that Louisa made tonight for dessert. It comes out of the oven with a crisp crust on the top, and a pudding sauce in the bottom of the dish. It was so comforting and wonderful, I just had to share the recipe with you!

Comfort Apple Crisp


apples (approximately 8-10 cups sliced)

3 T. whole wheat flour

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 T. honey (or 2 drops of liquid stevia extract)

1/4 cup water


1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

2 1/2 cups oatmeal

2/3 cup softened butter (or melted)

1/2 cup + 1 T. honey

Fill a 9 x 13" glass baking dish to the top with sliced unpeeled apples. Sprinkle with flour, cinnamon and toss to coat. Drizzle honey (or drop stevia) over the top of the apples, and add 1/4 cup water to the dish.

To make topping, combine flour, nuts, oatmeal, butter and honey. Spread over the apples evenly and bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until top is brown and crisp, and apples are tender.

    We just decided to make a comfort food, and were going to make Indian pudding. Then I remember the huge pile of apples I needed to use up my counter, and suggested that we make apple crisp. I decided to check my email and then get to work on the apple crisp, and when I opened your email, I had to laugh! Now I have a new apple crisp recipe that I will go make.... right now! I love your blog, Diane!
