  • 4 cups crispy tart cooking apples pared, cored and sliced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (or Splenda Brown Sugar)
  • 2 tbsp Watkin’s Cinnamon (my favorite)
  • 2 1/2 cups cooking oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 lemon grated rind


  • Cook apples in a saucepan or skillet, with 1 tbsp of butter, 1 tbsp nutmeg, and 1 tbsp cinnamon for 15 minutes.
  • Melt remaining butter in a pan over low heat, mixing in remainder of sugar, and the oatmeal. Toss the oatmeal until it is coated with brown sugar and butter, and keep frying until golden brown.
  • Using a 9″ x 12″ baking dish, which has been sprayed with vegetable oil, pour apple mixture in to pan spreading evenly. Add the oatmeal mixture evenly to top apples.
  • Sprinkle apple crisp with 1 tbsp cinnamon and bake at 375F degrees for 30 minutes. Yummy!
  • Remember to watch your portions as one serving will be about 300 calories.
