Clean Eating Individual Apple Crisps

Individual Apple Crisp

Individual Apple Crisp – Clean & Delicious®

Fall is in the air and what better way  to welcome this cool, brisk, colorful season than with a sweet, warm, ooey, gooey, apple crisp?!

But as we all know, too much of a good thing is simply too much, so I thought I would encourage the practice of moderation by making this crisp into individual sized portions. This way I could enjoy a little seasonal, sweet treat without over indulging (which I have been known to do when presented with warm fruit desserts!).

The fun part of the individual portions is that you can prepare the crisps and bake them as you want them so you’re never more than 20-minutes away from fresh baked Apple Crisp (something your friends will really appreciate if they stop by!).

Clean Eating Individual Apple Crisps

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 4 apples cut into small bite size pieces (about 3 cups)
  • 1tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup wheat germ
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • A pinch of salt


Pre-heat oven to 350.

Combine apples, lemon juice, brown sugar and corn starch in a medium bowl.

Lightly spray four 3.5-ounce ramekins with cooking spray and divide the apples evenly into each of the four dishes.

In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, cinnamon, wheat germ, salt, brown sugar, and walnuts.  Stir in the oil and maple syrup and combine well until the mixture is moist.

Top each of the ramekins with a couple tablespoons of the crisp topping and place in to the oven for twenty minutes or until the tops are golden brown and the apples are cooked through.  Enjoy!

Serves 4.

    Could you use something other than Coconut Oil? This sounds great but not sure I would use the coconut oil again and wouldn’t even know where to get it!!

    YUM! I love making these when it gets colder. I do a quick way where I saute the apples in coconut oil w/ cinnamon, Stevia, and nutmeg. Then I sprinkle the top with crushed melba toast and macadamia nuts! Lower carb, but still really satisfying. Your pictures are gorgeous =D

    Vicki – Yes… you can use canola or even olive oil. Either would work!
