Just Sweet Enough Apple Crisp Cups

Hi friends!

This week, I wanted to share one of my favourite quick after dinner dessert recipes.  I made this for my boyfriend and I for Valentine’s Day after our yummy dinner at home of steak and asparagus.  A special dinner just isn’t complete without dessert, am I right?? I love apple pie! It’s the best classic dessert that everyone enjoys…seriously who doesn’t with all its cinnamon and sugary goodness.  The way this apple crisp fills your home with its lovely scent will be sure to have neighbors knockin’ on your door.

Unfortunately, I never have time to make it when I’m craving it or really feel like making an entire pie… ever.  I always have these ingredients in my home so it’s easy to whip up whenever the cravings strike! Desserts that are small are so perfect so then I’m not forced to eat it all week and then feel guilty about it. 1 or 2 treats per week is plenty for me 🙂 . I used these cute porcelain ramekins for my dessert.  They are so versatile and the perfect personal sized treat.

Topping mixture (sans melted vegan butter)

This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy free and vegan but make sure to use certified gluten-free oats and soy-free Earth Balance if required.

I’ve included some pictures of the steps below for your reference.



Ensure you pack the apples down to fill any large spaces.
Top with topping mixture. Alternatively, you could add 1/4 of the mixture to the apples first too.
I used a creme brulee pan but you can put the ramekins on a baking sheet to catch any sugar drips or a loaf pan.
Bake until golden brown and apples are tender (to your liking).
