Apple Crisp In a Bowl

Ok, I will admit I’m getting a little desperate for desserts. I saw some delicious looking granny smith apples at the grocery store and instantly thought “apple pie sounds delicious right now”! I knew I could throw a single serving together by making an apple crisp instead and swapping out regular ingredients for diet-friendly ones. This kind of reminded me of the “cookie in a mug” and “cake in a mug” recipes.

The only swaps I made to the recipe below is I used erythritol baking sugar instead of white sugar, gluten-free oats in place of regular oats, and ghee (clarified butter) instead of regular butter. Topped it off with some vanilla bean coconut ice cream… It tasted just like the real thing!

Now you can make yourself a single serving of apple crisp without using a huge baking pan and making more than you need.

Apple Crisp In a Bowl

Oven Temp: 350°F

Cooking Time: 25 min


1 granny smith apple, peeled and cubed

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tbsp butter

1/2 cup instant oats

1 tbsp butter, melted

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1 tbsp white sugar

pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 350°F. In a oven-safe bowl, toss apple chunks and 1 tsp ground cinnamon together. Dot the top with 1 tbsp butter.


In a separate bowl, combine oats, melted butter, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg, white sugar, and a pinch of salt. Sprinkle oat mixture over bowl of apple chunks to completely cover the apple.
