Easy Apple Crisp (margarine free!)

What you need: 

5 cups apples, thinly sliced
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup oil
1 tablespoon nondairy milk

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Boil apples in water for 2 minutes to soften them up. Strain and place at the bottom of a square cooking dish.
2. Mix remaining ingredients until you get a flaky texture (if too moist, add a little bit more flour and mix well). Sprinkle over the apples and even out with a spoon.
3. Place dish in oven and bake 30 minutes. Allow to cool before eating.
Source of recipe: I try to use vegan margarine as little as possible when I cook, so finally decided to create a vegan margarine free apple crisp recipe, since I love this dessert so much. I hope you enjoy this!

I just printed this off. I will let you know how I like it! I just need to pick up some whole wheat flour, nutmeg, soy milk, and rolled oats. Not much in my cupboard.  ::)



I made this this morning, and it was sooo good!

I used applesauce instead of oil, so I added extra flour because it was really moist. I also added 1 tsp of vanilla extract to the topping.

I was amazed at how easy this was! 5 stars, and I would absolutely make it again!


This is a great basic recipe to build upon, I made it and it turned out delicious!  Here are my variations:
I added a little cinnamon sucanat & a tiny pinch of salt and flour to the apples prior to putting the topping on.  Then I added another small pinch of salt to the dry ingredients and I used 1/2 applesauce 1/2 oil for the total 1/3 C of Oil.  I also didn't need to add the Tbsp of rice milk since it seemed wet enough.  Oh and I used spelt flour, I also didn't cook the apples first but I was using softer apples and they turned out just right after about 40 minutes at 350.


this looks yummy, but I didn't find rolled oats. Can I use whole oats instead??


As if this needs another 5-star review ;) But I'm telling you it ROCKS. If you use a harder apple like granny smith it really IS important to cook them a bit first, which I didn't because I failed to note the difference from soft Mackintoshes. But it was still amazing. Used a lot less oil in the crumble, and it  still had perfect crunchy- crumbly- sweetness. My mom used to make this with margerine every Christmas and since going vegan that's been a problem... not anymore! Thank you sooo much! :)


i just made this--it's great! i did add a tiny bit of earth balance to the very top, so that it would crisp up a little more. next time, i think i'll sub applesauce for half of the oil. overall, it was very tasty. thanks!


This is a winner!
Ran out of apples, so used blueberries, and it worked great.


Because this looks so good I am contemplating whether I should make this for thanksgiving!  Can you use this crisp topping for pumpkins?


This came out good but I think I will try spicing the apples first. The crisp was really yummy, but the apples were kinda bland. Still, Excellent recipe!


I'm going to try this, it seems like it'll turn out fantastic.

And it did! :D
