OMG - this is a great recipe! Only 5 WW points a serving, it can even be eaten as a great breakfast!! This recipe is a keep and a definite do again! I used Granny Smith apples and they were just tart enough and the topping was crisp and delicious!!


Great recipe! I halved the recipe since I did not have a pan large enough to make the whole recipe and it was great. I also used chopped hazelnuts but I forgot to add them into the topping so I sprinkled them on the top and baked it. Amazing taste and wonderful flavor! This recipe is a keeper.


This is wonderful. Not overly sweet and the topping is nice and crunchy. I did not have the apple juice on hand the first time I made this and increased the butter and oil just a tiny bit. I have many apple crisp recipes but this one has become #1.


I've been craving some good fall food and made this crisp sunday afternoon - all I can say is you would never know that it is healthy eating - yummo! The apples were perfectly tart and the overall dessert was not too sweet - we added some vanilla ice cream and everyone loved it. The portions were generous.
