Skinny Test Kitchen: Healthy Apple Crisp

By Lisa Rhea


This apple crisp is so healthy – it’s guilt-free and delicious!

This apple crisp recipe uses all natural ingredients and substitutes butter for coconut oil. I may be a little partial, since I created this one, but I thought it was a delicious treat! While not quite as sweet as the real thing, the difference is barely noticeable, in my opinion.


  • 5 large Granny Smith apples
  • 5 packets of Stevia or 1/4 c maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • Cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9×9 baking pan with a little coconut oil.
  2. Slice and peel apples. Add 1/3 of apples to shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with one packet of Stevia and cinnamon. Repeat for two more layers. If using maple syrup, drizzle each layer with syrup.


  3. Mix oats, remaining Stevia (or syrup), more cinnamon and coconut oil together.
  4. Top apples with oat mixture and cover with tin foil.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until apples are tender and juices are bubbly. Remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes to crisp the top.

      I would say about 1/4 inch thick…if you cut them thinner or thicker, just adjust the baking time. I use the stab-test (technical term) to see if they’re ready – I stab and apple to check how tender it is…
