Oatmeal Recipes Quick and Delicious Apple Crisp

One thing I love about this time of year is sharing holiday memories with my family. We baked a lot during the holidays and still continue that tradition today. That love of baking during the holidays has transpired from baking for the whole family to also baking for just my husband and me.

We try to do date night once every few weeks. With the busy holidays, we have to have a plan for a night at home every once in a while. Even if we aren’t going out I still want to make it a special evening for the both of us. I love to bring out our favorite holiday recipes to enjoy together as we snuggle on the couch and watch a movie together.

I always have apples and Quaker oatmeal on hand so individual apple crisp desserts were the perfect solution to our next date night in.

Now I have to say that while I love date night in, I don’t want to labor in the kitchen all night. This dessert recipe is the perfect dish to make with a limited amount of time. it took me about 15-20 minutes to throw together and 25 minutes to bake.

The hardest part of this recipe is peeling the apples. Seriously! Everything else goes so quickly, including cutting the apples into thin slices.

Tip: Use an apple slicer to cut and core your apples at the same time. Then thinly slice each wedge into the same size slice to ensure even baking time for all of the apples.

With a recipe from my childhood, a cozy spot on the couch, and my husband by my side, I’m one happy woman. Making new memories to keep old memories alive is something I cherish and enjoy doing each year.

  1. I love baking with oats during the holidays, and this recipe looks delicious! Apple crisps are one of the ultimate comfort foods. It’s sleeting/snowing here today, so I think this requires a couple of these apple crisps to show up in my kitchen! #client

  2. They sound fantastic. I love anything with oatmeal.

  3. Oh this sounds really good! Looks easy to make too. A scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and all set!

  4. Apple crisp is one of my favorite fall/winter desserts! So delicious! I agree about the scoop of vanilla ice cream above! Yum!

  5. I am totally loving the smaller portion of each crisp! I like it but I hate making a bit batch because it never gets eaten fast enough and goes bad! Now we can enjoy apple crisp and make JUST enough. Yum!

  6. I used to love helping my grandma make the lasagna for Christmas. Yep; we had Christmas lasagna.
