Fabulous Fruit Crisp Recipe

Fabulous Fruit Crisp

Our delicious remake of this classic dessert has roughly half the butter and sugar of a traditional crisp, plus extra fiber to boot!

What you'll need


  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/8 cup white flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


  • 6 cups peeled and sliced fruit, such as apples, pears, or peaches
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Helpful Tip:

Mix the ingredients for the fruit crisp topping with your fingers or a fork to help distribute the butter more evenly and create a uniform texture.

How to make it

  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees, then grease a 9-inch square baking pan. In a medium bowl, mix together the topping ingredients until they resemble coarse crumbs (see tip below).
  2. In a separate bowl, toss together the fruit, syrup, and cornstarch. Transfer the filling to the baking pan, then spoon the oat mixture evenly on top. Bake until the topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serves 8.
