Apple Crisp

This is my husband's favorite and he literally jumps up and down when he sees it on the counter for his breakfast.

Super easy to make ahead. It heats up pretty well. Can use as breakfast, or as part of lunch. 

Phase 1 of FMD

Apple Crisp

Serves 4 (standard servings)

4 cups chopped apples, leave peels on (Granny Smith, or Honeycrisp are my faves)
2 cups rolled oats (use half rolled and half steel cut if you want extra crispy topping)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup xylitol, divided

Put oats, 1 cup of the apple, 1/4 cup xylitol, 1 tsp cinnamon and the salt in a food processor and pulse a few times. 
Stir the remaining cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, 1/4 cup xylitol and a pinch of salt with the remaining 3 cups apple. Pout this into baking dish. Spread the oat mixture on top evenly. Bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes until apples are just tender. Cover with foil if the topping browns too quickly.

  1. I am super sensitive to xylitol. do you think the apple would provide enough sweetness or is there something else I can use? thanks!

    1. Depends on the apples you use. I used Granny Smith, so definitely needed sweetness. You can use any fruit you like, really

  2. I don't like steel cut oats but notice you use rolled oats here I didn't realize that was an acceptable replacement so wanted to ask? This sounds delicious can't wait to try! Thanks for all you do.

  3. Haylie prefers steel cut but rolled oats (not instant) can be used on the plan instead of steel cut. I prefer steel cut because of the texture. Rolled oats get to gummy for me, when cooked. This recipe is great and a nice treat in Phase 1. Thanks for following along!

    1. If you normally cook with stevia and like it, then yes

    1. I've never seen liquid xylitol in the 3 years I've been doing FMD
