Healthy Apple Crisp: this healthy easy apple crisp recipe yields delicious crisp topping and warm apple filling for a guilt-free dessert made with healthy ingredients!
Apple crisp: one of my least favorite desserts as a child. Healthy apple crisp: one of my favorite healthy desserts as an adult. <– It’s called growing up, ya know? Lol.
What’s your favorite healthy dessert now that you used to despise as a child? For some, it might be oatmeal raisin cookies, for others it’s pumpkin bread, for other others, it’d be healthy granola. (I mean, as a bonafide “a-dult,” you totally start counting things like healthy granola as a dessert, know what I mean?)
It’s just, when I was a kid, if it had any kind of fruits in it, I did not think it qualified as a dessert. Then, as an adult, I realized that I was so not friggin’ right—and that if I simply tweaked said fruit recipe, let’s say, an apple crisp—that I could make it exactly how I liked it.

Healthy Ingredients for a Delicious Healthy Apple Crisp
What kind of health benefits come from the healthy ingredients used in today’s healthy apple crisp? Check it out below:
Ahh… apples, the star of the show! When developing this recipe, I made sure to use ingredients that only highlighted the delicious, nutritious flavor of apples. You’ll enjoy 4 whole cups of apples in today’s healthy apple crisp recipe. With just 1 medium apple , you can expect 4 grams of fiber, 14% of the RDI (reference daily intake) of Vitamin C and 2-6% of nutrients including potassium, Vitamin K, manganese, copper and more.
Oats, wonderful oats, how many ways can we count the health benefits of oats? 🙂 Oats can be helpful in keeping you full longer, improving heart health, and are nutrient-rich in zinc, fiber, magnesium and more. 
Almond Flour & Nuts
Coconut, Coconut Oil, Coconut Sugar
Coconut is one of my favorite ingredients to use because it’s fiber-rich , low in carbs and high in MCT’s, which can lead to improved brain function  and longer lasting fullness . Yes, coconut oil and coconut sugar should be eaten in moderation, so I’ve included just 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. 😉
To keep sugar down, I made sure to include as little as possible, while still keeping this healthy apple crisp just-right sweet. There’s just 3 tablespoons of sweetener in the filling, and just 2.5 tablespoons in the topping.
Flaxseed is one of those nutrient-rich  superfoods you hear about everywhere! But how do you incorporate it into your diet? I’ve found that adding a bit to this recipe and a bit to that recipe really adds up throughout the day. Flaxseed is another fiber-rich , low carb ingredient that’s packed with heart-healthy fatty acids  that can help to lower cholesterol.
Unbelievably crisp topping with a warm, gooey apple filling makes for the best healthy apple crisp recipe!
