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 apple dessert has a nuttier taste. Delicious!
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.
As you can see, recipes with apples can be altered so easily by changing the apples and the methods of sweetening them. The final dessert, even when using the same recipe, can be different every time if you want.

Here's what some of my fans say:
Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!
Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.
Lori S: This is the best split pea soup I ever made! It disappeared faster than any other soup I have made. It is so easy to prepare the night before an throw together before I leave for work, I will definitely use it often!
Sunetra C: Das sieht aber lecker aus.
