Maple Walnut Apple Crisp
I very rarely make dessert during the week. After making an entire meal, I really don’t have the time or the patience to do so. Plus, who really needs those extra calories during the week…not me. BUT, this recipe for Maple Walnut Apple Crisp from Cooking Light looked so easy AND it only has 208 calories per serving, so I had to try it.
I love that this recipe only has 9 ingredients!
You start out with making the crisp topping. Mix flour, sugar, oats and cinnamon in a bowl then cut in butter until crumbly (which is absolutely my least favorite thing to do, even with my pastry blender). Stir in walnuts.
Combine sliced apples (I sliced mine pretty thin), maple syrup and more cinnamon to make the filling of the crisp. Spoon apples into your baking dish and with sprinkle crumb mixture. Bake for 45 minutes and you are done!
The apples are absolutely amazing! The maple syrup (I used REAL MAPLE SYRUP, always!!) makes the apples sweet and buttery. The topping isn’t super sugary, so it compliments the syrup. The oats are old fashioned, so the lend a great texture to the crisp.
