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!

Apple Crisp -- German style! So great with harvest-time meals or anytime, made just like Oma.

Check below why I say this is my Germanized version for this all-American Apple Crisp!

German?

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?

Sugar?

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 tablespoons of maple syrup over instead. Then to the oat mixture, I've added ½ cup chopped almonds. Pecans work great as well.

Apples?

  • When choosing apples, the best are those with a nice sweet-tart balance.
  • Sometimes a mixture of apple varieties makes for a super delicious treat. 
  • Some varieties to try, either alone or in combination are Cortlands, Empire (which are a cross between a Red Delicious and McIntosh), Mutsu or Crispin, Golden Delicious, Honeycrisp, and Jonathan. 
  • The Granny Smith (my favorite eating apple) is very crisp and quite tart. I particularly like to use it in a mixture of apples for this recipe for apple crisp.

Oma says:

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.
