This is the best apple crisp recipe with oatmeal that I've found Juicy, easy, healthy, quick - what more could one want? The usual way of making apple crisp uses all-purpose flour and quick-cooking oats. For healthier I began using whole wheat flour and old-fashioned rolled oats. Not only healthier, but this German-style apple dessert has a nuttier taste. Delicious!
Check below why I say this is my Germanized version for this all-American Apple Crisp!
This is my "Germanized" version. I love marzipan -- something so traditionally German. Adding almond flavoring to almost anything baked gives it that "marzipan-y" taste!
I added a bit of almond flavoring to the melted butter in order to distribute it well in the crumbly topping. Wow, what an improvement! For me, this now becomes a German recipe for apple crisp! Why not give it a try?
Depending on the sweetness of the apples, you can omit the added sugar to the apples and lower the amount of brown sugar in the topping. As a treat, instead of the sugar added to the apples, I've drizzled about 2 tbsp. of maple syrup over instead. Then to the oat mixture, I've added 1/2 cup chopped almonds. Pecans work great as well.
