My preferred apples to use are Granny Smith because they are not too sweet and have a bit of a slightly sour taste. This is perfect when I marinate the apple pieces with some cinnamon sugar before putting them into the baking dish.

My Secret Ingredient For The Best Apple Crisp Without Oats

What makes my apple crisp recipe so special is my ‘secret’ ingredient that has been handed down from my grandma to me and my family.

In addition to flour, butter, and sugar, I am adding ground almonds to the crisp dough. It makes the crisps so flavorsome, and crunchy with a slightly nutty flavor.

You do have to try it and please let me know how you liked it.

Of course, you don’t need to add the ground almonds but I promise you, it will take this apple crisp recipe to another level.
