Granola Apple Crisp

Granola for Granola Apple Crisp

A fruit crisp is a tasty and sweet Granny Smith Crisp dessert made with baked fruit as the bottom topped with a crumbly topping. There usually is no crust. A typical crisp combines a variety of ingredients, which include brown sugar, cinnamon, oatmeal and nuts that are mixed with the butter, flour and cinnamon to create a granular topping that is spread over the baked fruit. Apple crisp is one of the most commonly prepared crisps and one that can be served cold or warm - although most prefer it served warm. See below for a typical Apple Crisp Recipe.


1 tablespoon butter
5 or 6 Golden Delicious apples
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1-1/3 cup prepared or packaged granola
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup butter, softened


Pare apples if desired; core and slice to equal 6 cups. Combine with cheese and cinnamon; place in greased 2-quart baking dish.

Combine granola, sugar and nuts; cut in butter. Sprinkle over apple mixture.

Bake at 375 degrees 30 to 40 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender.

If necessary, cover part way through baking time to prevent over browning. Serve warm.
