Apple For The Teacher Apple Crisp

It’s no secret that I love a themed dessert. With school back in session, and with apples back in season, what could be better than an Apple For The Teacher Apple Crisp?

I came up with this recipe a few years ago while mucking about in my kitchen and, funnily enough, all the ingredients are available at Moberly!

Apple For The Teacher Apple Crisp


  • 2 – 3 large apples
  • 1/2 cup large rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Sugar
  • 1 + 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut your apples into thin slices. Arrange them in a single layer covering the bottom of a glass baking dish (I used a glass pie dish). Mix together the coconut sugar and 1 tsp of the cinnamon, and sprinkle some over the layer. Add another layer of apple slices, then a layer of cinnamon sugar, and repeat. Stop when the layers reach within 1 cm/half an inch of the top of the glass.

In a bowl, mix together the oats, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and the remaining cinnamon. Crumble the mixture over the top of the apples. Garnish with a couple of leftover apple slices.

Bake at 350 for 30 – 45 minutes, until the apples are soft. Slice, serve, and enjoy! Pro Tip: a scoop of Coconut Bliss melts nicely overtop! Or, if you’re feeling REALLY daring, try So Delicious Cinnamon Cookie Dough Ice Cream.
