Mini Apple Crisps

Several weeks ago, Jenn posted a recipe for mini apple crisps, and I knew I had to make them. Unfortunately, I didn’t have mini ramekins. Ramekins have been on my wish list for a very long time. Since my kitchen is pretty small, I always think very carefully before purchasing new kitchen items. But I thought ramekins would be a good, useful purchase. Plus, I had a $25 gift card from my birthday.

Here are my beautiful ramekins. The four of them cost only about $10, so I get to go shopping again with the money left on the gift card… :o)

I slightly altered Jenn’s recipe. Here is what I used to make four mini apple crisps:


  • 1 1/2 large apples
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 3 Tbsp oats
  • 4 Tbsp water
I started by cutting the peeled apples into small thin slices.

Then, I mixed the apples with the cinnamon.

Next, I put the apple mixture into the ramekins.

I mixed the sugar, flour, and oats. When the dry ingredients were mixed, I added the melted butter and mixed everything well.

I put the oat mixture on top of the apples.

Finally, I poured one tablespoon of water over each ramekin.

I baked the crisps in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes.

Everyone loved the crisps, and I have already made them several times. They are easy, quick, and pretty healthy.

Question: What’s your favorite apple recipe?

Be well,
