If there’s one thing I make more at this time of year than anything else, it’s apple crisp.

It’s easy, it’s warm (which I love when it’s cooler outside), and it makes me feel healthy since it’s full of oats and apples.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I totally eat this for breakfast, and I don’t feel ashamed about it. ;) I usually make apple crisp for dessert one night and then reheat a bowl of the leftovers for breakfast the next morning.

I’ve previously shared my recipe for mini apple crisps, but this is the full-sized version. My grandma shared her recipe with me when I was a kid just learning how to bake, and if I could handle it as a 10-year-old, I’m pretty sure anyone can master this recipe!

You can use any apples you want. My grandparents have an apple orchard with several different varieties, and I think I’ve used about all of them in this recipe at one time or another! Just slice up your apples of choice, toss them in a baking dish, mix up the crumble and sprinkle it on top, and then bake the whole thing. Simple!

I serve mine warm with vanilla or cinnamon ice cream. You could also use whipped cream or serve it as is!

That’s about all there is to this easy recipe! I just enjoyed some of this last night, and I’m sure it won’t be the last time this season! What are your standby recipes this time of year?
