Apple Granola Crisp

Rhonda E!


I have a bunch of granola and apples and I did not want to use all kinds of butter making an apple pie crust then an apple pie. So I found an Apple Crisp Recipe that I liked and I changed it to use up the granola I have. I have come up with this technique for making a soft granola apple crisp and now I can make a crisp using any flavor of granola I have. This photo shows a very soft topping and had just the right amount of moisture to make the granola soft. I hope you enjoy my recipe!

How to Make Apple Granola Crisp


  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees and peel and core apples then slice into slices. Put into a stainless steel bowl.
  2. Mix in a bowl white sugar and 1 tbsp. flour and cinnamon together.
  3. Now add the granola and mix. Then add the water and mix again to get the granola wet so it can start absorbing the liquid.
  4. Add the granola mixture to the apples and mix thoroughly. Put into a 1 1/2 qt casserole dish.
  5. In another bowl Mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and melted butter. Use your hand and mix it together to make a crumble topping that falls apart. **Note: You will need to add additional tbsps. of flour if it is not falling apart and is not crumbly. I had to add 3 more tablespoons of flour when making this recipe.***
  6. Sprinkle the mixture over the apple-granola mixture. Cover the entire area.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees. For 45 min or until desired tenderness.
  8. Tips: When using granola that contains nuts pick out the nuts and chop or mince them then add to the mixture. Mine contained Almonds and Walnuts. It all depends on how crunchy you want your apple granola crisp. I wanted a soft granola apple crisp so I also made the recipe different than a traditional crisp by adding the oats to the apples so they would soften up during cooking.
  9. Serve by itself or with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

    After making this I was impressed how the granola came out it was tender not hard or soggy. Since I like granola so much I am going to increase the amount to 1 cup. Plus some water. *Note there are different types of baked granola. I used crispy baked and that is a hard granola. There is also a soft baked granola and it is soft when you squeeze it in the bag. If I were to use the soft baked granola I would add it to the crumbled topping mixture and top the apples with that mixture when making the dessert.
