Plus, it is #AppleWeek on this week, so why not add something classic like Apple Crisp, right?
Apples — The absolute star of this dish; I tend to mix Gala Apples with Granny Apples for a nice ying-yang of flavor
Canned Coconut Cream or Milk – Makes things nice + creamy; If using the canned coconut milk, be sure to refrigerate overnight to make it thick
Flour or Starch – Adds thickness to the tops
Brown Sugar – Creates a beautiful caramelization and sweetness to the top layer
Vegan Butter — Allows the topping to golden best; can be substituted with coconut oil
Maple Syrup — Used as a sweetener and creates a nice creaminess to apples. Can sub with brown sugar or Agave
Fall Spices — the epitome of Fall flavor, including: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, cloves
If you aren’t familiar, oats are super nutritious! They include a great source of carbs, fiber (the soluble kind!), protein, and fat. In addition, they are loaded with important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant.

HOW DO YOU STORE LEFTOVERS?
Leftover apple crisp can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days at most. Personally, I find that it’s best consumed within the same day, however, you can simply reheat your crisp in the oven once ready to serve again.
CAN I MAKE THIS AHEAD?
Absolutely! Simply prep all your ingredients separately: slicing the apples and tossing them in the coconut cream + spices and storing them in a separate bowl and adding the oats and spices in a separate bowl. Once ready to bake, simply add the prepped apples in your baking dish or skillet, top with oats and drizzle with vegan butter. Wallah!
HOW MANY SERVINGS CAN THIS MAKE?
Honestly, it’s really up to you. This standard recipe can be up to 4 servings, depending on how many scoops you choose to indulge in (I’m guilty of eating this stuff massively. Haha). However, to increase the servings, simply make twice as much or triple the amount of the ingredients.
CAN I REMIX THIS CRISP WITH OTHER FLAVORS?
Definitely! I’m a huge believer in making tweaks based on your tastebuds and this recipe is no different. Simply, add blueberries, apricots, or cranberries for a little pizzazz.
Let’s dig right into this recipe, shall we?
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lightly grease the skillet or baking dish with butter and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the coconut cream, maple syrup, and spices and toss in your sliced apples, coating them generously.
In a separate bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, oats, spices, and vegan butter and stir together until mixture looks crumbly and slightly chunky.
Spoon the apples into the bottom of your baking dish or skillet and top with oats mixture. Bake for about 40-45 minutes or until apples become bubbly and topping is golden brown.
Once fully baked, remove from oven and let them cool for 5 minutes or so. Serve warm and enjoy with a scoop of your favorite non-dairy ice cream or CocoWhip!
