Healthier Apple Crisp


For variety, stir 2 to 4 tablespoons ground flaxseed into the topping mixture before sprinkling over apples.

Did You Know?

Good apples for apple crisp are the same as those that are good in apple pie, such as Braeburn, Jonathan, McIntosh or Northern Spy.

50% less fat • 33% more fiber • 29% fewer calories than the original recipe. By using fiber-rich whole-wheat flour and oats, we were able to add a third more fiber to a dessert that's good to the core!
