Single Serving Healthy Apple Crisp

Thank you Vital Proteins for sponsoring this post so I can share the recipe for this single serving healthy apple crisp.

Growing up, my mom didn't make a lot of desserts.  It just really wasn't her thing.  She did have one recipe that she would make every single fall though multiple times: APPLE CRISP! As soon as October rolled around, everyone in my family would start begging her to make her famous apple crisp. It got to the point where she made it so much she didn't even need to use measuring cups, she just filled up a big baking dish full of chopped up apples, added some cinnamon, and then made a crumbly topping by throwing in some oats, sugar, butter, and a few other goodies. 

We would eat apple crisp for dessert and then race downstairs again in the morning to be the first one to get to the leftovers in the fridge to eat them cold for breakfast again too! We got to be a little but apple crisp obsessed for a few years in a row :)  I still love apple crisp and I always think of my mom now whenever I make it.  While I made a lightened up version of my my mom's original recipe: apple crisp is still a treat and one of my I decided to make a single serving version so I wouldn't have to be tempted to eat the leftovers for breakfast again the next day, because with this easy single serving version there are no leftovers!!! Well, unless you don't have quite as big of an appetite as I do, because while this is a single serving recipe, it is a pretty big portion.  You could easily split it in two to share...or just eat the whole thing like I did ;)

To bump up the protein a bit and to add some health benefits, I used Vital Proteins Vanilla Collagen Peptides in the oat topping! This is the same vanilla flavored collagen I used in my apple cinnamon baked oatmeal recipe I recently posted: I just love how easily this vanilla collagen can be incorporated into baked goods. Most versions of apple crisp call for some type of flour in with the oat mixture, but by using collagen instead of flour this apple crisp becomes gluten free, and even grain free. Collagen is also known for supporting healthier hair, skin and nails and even improving joint and gut health, so it's a power-house packed supplement that can be added to this dessert without impacting the delicious flavor of the recipe!

I think traditionally apple crisp is eaten warm and is even better with a scoop of melty vanilla ice cream on top...but I also like it cold! Just bake the apple crisp, store it in the fridge, and it tastes just as good a few hours later cold scooped right out of the ramekin. If you want to go ahead and let it sit overnight and try it for breakfast like I did as a kid...I wouldn't judge you!!!

      1. Yummy.
        A scrumptious and healthful version of apple crisp. look, i love apple crisp for a variety of motives. It’s at ease, comforting, a little bit nostalgic and lots less complicated to make than home made apple pie. Plus who doesn’t love the texture component of the topping? It’s everything you can need in a dessert. ultimate time I've organized it ; packed with butter, sugar and flour, this has been lightened up however virtually would not skimp on flavor. Many of my friends asked that would this recipe work with rhubarb in preference to apple and pear?. Actually cooking is one of my hobby I would to spend my free time with. Otherwise I was little bit busy on essay writing. Thank you.
