Inside Out Apple Crisp
Remember that awesome Homemade Granola Recipe from last week? We used it today to make this truly delicious inside out apple crisp. My kid was so excited about this idea that I let him eat it for breakfast. Before you judge me, it’s way healthier than most muffins!
We only had one granny smith apple in the house so we shared this breakfast treat. (You can also use pink lady apples but I wouldn’t recommend red delicious.) The recipe is for one large apple and you can use any store bought granola to make it – you don’t have to bake up a special batch just for this. If you’re baking this for the family just double, triple or quadruple the recipe depending on how many you want to serve. Of course, it almost goes without saying that this would be great for dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Now for the recipe…
Inside Out Apple Crisp Recipe
Prep Time: 10 mins Cooking Time: 30 mins
1 large granny smith apple
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon butter (diced)*
1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup granola
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons butter
agave or honey for drizzling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel the apple half way from the top down and core it being careful not to poke a whole in the bottom of the apple . In a small bowl mix together flour, butter, brown sugar and granola. Place a teaspoon of butter into the apple. Stuff the apple with the granola mixture until it is over stuffed. Place another teaspoon of butter on top and put the apple in a baking dish filled with about a 1/4-inch of water. Bake until top is golden brown and apple is tender, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and drizzle with agave or honey. Serve warm.
*We used Smart Balance and it worked great.
i am so hungry this morning and this is not helping. do you deliver? yummy
This looks fantastic, but I can't figure out how to core the apple without going through. Tips?
your recipes always look so yummy! i'm hoping to be able to use some with my son once he's a little older
This looks lovely! What a great idea for my nephew and me to make!
I had the same problem in the past. This time I took a paring knife and dug out just the top part. Then I used a metal baby spoon to scoop out the rest. Although, I do I think it's time I invest in an apple corer. I'm going to do a little research and then I'll post a link to the one I like best. Stay tuned.

I’m coming to the party a bit late, but the essential tool for this is a melon baller. Goes right in, scoops out just the stem and core, and leaves a bunch of apple in the bottom to help hold in the crisp. I’ve also found it useful to cut off just a bit of the bottom on the “rolly” apples to keep them upright.
