Small Batch Honey Apple Crisp

This post is a quick one. I teased this apple crisp on Instagram and had so many messages asking for the recipe that I decided to get it up right away! It’s meant to be smaller than most recipes since we live in a house with only two adults, so if you need, feel free to double and cook in a larger baking dish than recommended.

It’s perfectly sweetened with some honey and heavy on the delicious crisp. Pair with some whipped cream or whipped coconut milk for dessert or some Greek yogurt or almond yogurt for a light breakfast or midday snack.

Essential piece of info: according to Bon Appetit, the best apples for baking are: jonagold, honey crisp, Braeburn, mutsu, winesap, and pink lady. I used Jonagold that we picked at Solebury orchards last weekend.

  • Mix apples with honey lemon and vanilla in a medium sized bowl.
  • Sprinkle corn starch and spices on top and stir well.
