Apple crisp is probably my favorite kind of fruit crisp (you can find my skillet version here), and it is perfect for this time of year. Crisps are always super simple to throw together, and they feed a crowd with only a small amount of work and time. Today, these sweet red apples are coated in a tiny amount of maple syrup, topped with a healthy mix of oats, coconut sugar, coconut oil and peanut butter. PEANUT BUTTER.

The peanut butter in this apple crisp changes everything. I have decided that I’m never going to make an apple crisp without peanut butter ever again. Dramatic? Nope. I mean, who doesn’t like the combo of apples and PB? Crazy people, I tell you. (Unless you have a PB allergy, of course. Then you’re not crazy. But you should totally use almond butter, that would be just as good.)

  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of the ramekins with a little bit of coconut oil or cooking spray.

  3. In that same mixing bowl, combine the oats, sugar, peanut butter, coconut oil, vanilla and salt. Mix together until everything is evenly combined. I found it easier to just use my hand to mix it instead of a spoon.

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until top is golden brown and apples are soft.
  6. Let them cool for 5 minutes before handling, the ramekins will be HOT.
