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!

this recipe is great for breakfast!  I made it with applesauce instead of oil.  I think boiling the apples first is completely unnecessary - 30 minutes in the oven is plenty.  when I had all the apples sliced, I added a mixture of about 2 T. flour, 2 T. sugar, and some cinnamon to them.  it makes a nice sauce when it bakes.  5 stars!


I just made this recipe again and it turned out great!! I used alot of apples (I'm not too sure how many, but alot!), 3/4 c. organic brown sugar, 3/4 c. oatmeal, 1/2 c. whole wheat flour, and 1/4 c. wheat bran, along with some cinnamon. And I added some applesauce inplace of the oil in the topping.  Turned out wonderful, and the longest part was just cutting up the apples. Very easy.

I hope you all enjoy it!


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


This was awesomely delicious!

I was at my sister's house for her birthday, and she wanted some apple crisp for a birthday breakfast...

we had 5 apples and no margerine! what could we do?

We made this!  We didn't actually boil the apples, we used Washington-Soft Galas and they were soft enough. We baked it for 30 minutes, and then 5 more, but there wasn't really any color to the topping... so we broiled it (for 3 minutes)... too long!  It burned (and set off the smoke alarm, at 7am...) BUT we scraped off the burned pieces and ate it.  It was soooo good (even after burning and scraping). I'd show a picture, but there's really not much left, only a few crumbs...


This was such a simple and easy way to make apple crisp! We had a ton of apples from the apple tree, so I decided to use this recipe because it didn't have any butter/margarine like the others do. I boiled the apples for two minutes, but they seemed too soft, so I added another apple. 

I just tried a bite, and it is soooo good!!!! I definately recommend this recipe to anyone! 5 STARS!


This is excellent. The third time I made it, I substituted natural applesauce for the oil to cut calories and add moisture to the layer of crisp.
